My sincere condolences. Neil was a special person. Kind and always happy on the other end of that phone. I have to agree with some others on here that when he called to ask a question or place an order, it was...Neil...Jaeger Lumber and you could just hear the smile on his face. I am very sad to hear of his loss but know he is still smiling down on us and his family. Rest in Peace my friend.

I've worked with Neil for 12 years. He was always the most optimistic and one of the most helpful individuals at Jaeger. He was flush with knowledge from spending his life in the industry and willing to teach us newcomers if we were willing to learn. Neil certainly loved his work, but was always looking forward to his weekends with the grandchildren. Even if they tired him out a bit, although I think that's one of the parts he enjoyed. Helped him remember what it was to be so young. He enjoyed his daily walks on the Avon Boardwalk for lunch and his bowl of fruit in the morning. I think the only thing I won't miss is having to change out the the water cooler for him after he took the last drops of water for his morning tea... I used to bust his chops and tell him he took the last of the water and he would retort with something like "Yeah I left it for you to change". Nothing to do but tip the cap and head outside to grab some water. Neil was everything you could ask for as a co-worker and employee; happy, helpful, and available. No matter where he was going he would always remind us we could call him on his cell as he'd still be working. Never one to miss time working. I'm sure those same attributes translated into his family life. I know for me I am a better employee for having had the chance to work with Neil everyday. I'm sure others would say the same. We will certainly miss him here in Belmar, but his legacy will live on with every hardwood sale we make. Forever left with his jovial morning phone call greeting "Goooood Morning. This is Neil!".

Jane and family our deepest sympathies on Neil’s passing. When I would see Neil at the Belmar lumberyard he always said hello and would find time to stop to have a chat, if he was having a bad day you would never have known it. He was always a gentleman and was very knowledgeable and helpful to me over the years when ordering trim and hardwoods for various projects. We also enjoyed bumping into you guys on the Jaeger trips either at the bar for a cocktail or at Church for Sunday mass. You guys will be in our thoughts and prayers. Michael & Karen Long

Husband, father, family man, - that was Neil. To us, lifelong friend. Those who knew Neil knew he lived life to the fullest. Businessman, sailor, chef - he would welcome everyone into his home, and he'd cook for them too! There's not enough pages to share all the memories we have of our times with Neil - 70 years worth! They are part of our story made richer by having Neil as our friend. We will always cherish them and keep his memory close to our hearts.
