Robert E McNeill
Class of 1960
Posted on: 2/18/2007 1:38:35 PM
Robert (Bob) McNeill, of Ocala Florida, formerly of Pitcairn, passed away December 21, 2006. A memorial service will be held on March 3, 2007 at 1:00 pm at Hope Luthern Church of Forest Hills (353 Ridge Ave). We are asking that anyone attending bring something that reminds you of Bob. He was the husband of Janet (Queen), father of Tammy and Robert Jr, and grandfather of Megan, Dillon and Jenna Eve, brother of Catherine Rosenbayer, Linda Trinchero, Richard McNeill and the late Gerald McNeill. I just wanted his friends to know how much my Uncle Bob loved Gateway football! He came home in the fall of 2005 to attend a "midget" football reunion and while he was here he attended a Gator football game. All I could think about that friday night as he headed out to cheer on "his" Gators was the rain! When I saw him the next day I was waiting for him to say something about how it rained the entire game. Instead, he had a big smile on his face as he talked about the events of that evening and how it brought back a lot of fond memories from his days as a "Gator" football player. My Uncle Bob lived in Floria most of his adult life, but there were two things about his hometown he always loved - the Pittsburgh Steelers and Gateway Gator football! If anyone has a story they would like to share with his family, we would love to hear it.
