Neil Patrick Webb
Sadly, we must announce the passing of Neil Patrick Webb, age 67 on Friday, December 15, 2023. Neil passed away peacefully after a short stay in hospice care at the Gene Zwozdesky Centre in Edmonton Alberta.
He was born June 8, 1956, in Victoria Cove, Newfoundland. Like many Newfoundlanders, Neil moved to Alberta for work in the early 1980s. He lived in Edmonton for the remainder of his life, but Newfoundland was still “home.” He made regular trips back to see family, friends and in fact most everyone in Gander Bay! He also maintained contact from Edmonton making many a phone call to cousins and friends, to check in. Neil also had a large circle of friends in Edmonton, many of whom he met when he first moved there.
Neil was one of a kind with a “big” personality and a great sense of humour (albeit sometimes a bit off-colour) who loved to spend time with his family and friends. Visiting with Neil almost always involved food and he loved to cook up a feed and share it with those he loved. Neil held many different jobs during his life, with a work ethic second to none, always giving 100%, still working up until a few weeks before he was hospitalized at the end of October. Neil loved to watch hockey, although being a die-hard Toronto Maple Leaf fan he didn’t often have a lot to cheer about.
Neil’s passing has left a void in the lives of many, as he truly did have a heart of gold.
Left to mourn his passing are Bente, his partner of 30 years, Victoria, his daughter, and her partner Jesse, his stepdaughter Lis (Chris), his stepson Hans, step-grandchildren, Kennedy and Michael, his siblings Bruce (Gertie), Cliff (Geraldine) and Sharon (Pat), nephews Randy, Lee, Luke and Noah and his niece Jennifer. Neil also leaves behind many cousins and friends.
Neil was predeceased by his parents Brian and Irene Webb, his brother Michael, and his stepson Chris
There will be Celebration of Life at a later date.
