Troy Steven Neale

TROY STEVEN NEALE passed away peacefully surrounded by his family in the early morning of Sunday, March 18, 2012 at the age of 41 years. Troy was born May 2, 1970 to Jack and Judy Neale.

Troy was a truly happy person that led a very busy and active life. He loved participating in many outdoor activities including golf, hunting and fishing. Additionally Troy was particularly passionate about competing as a tri-athlete. He loved to play hockey and contributed so much to the game as referee, volunteer and coach. And above all, Troy loved spending time with his wonderful Daughters.

Troy was employed by Tembec, Canal Flats Division as an apprentice millright, lumber grader and was an IWA Union representative for many years. His involvement within the community helped to keep Canal Flats safe as an EMT often responding to late night calls. Troy also worked in the Riverside Golf pro-shop and as a ski patroller at the Fairmont Ski Hill. Troy was a dedicated individual and loved to make a positive difference in his well lived life.

Troy leaves behind to mourn his passing the loves of his life; his two beautiful daughters Megan and Savanna. He also leaves his parents; Jack and Judy Neale; one sister Tami (Rick) Prasad and one brother Tom (Kelley) Neale as well as six nieces and nephews; Josh, Jessica, Dillon, Brianna, Donavan and Illeana. He is survived by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, his beloved friends Doug and Lynn Wood and the Plante family.
