Obituary of John Neff
It is with great sadness, that we announce, the passing of John Fredrick Neff, age 60, of Chatham, on Wednesday May 17, 2023. Born in Chatham in 1962, loving son of Donna (Grocott) Neff and the late William “Bill” Neff (May 5, 2023). Dear brother of Deb (Art) Strohm, Sandy (Trevor) Richardson, Michael (Tammy) Neff and Sally Neff. He is also survived by his aunts, Mary Joyce (Aldeo) Rossignol and Mary Jane (Ralph) Pyne and several cousins. Proud uncle to several nieces and nephews and their children.
John was a true lover of nature and the outdoors. He took great pride, in the care and maintenance, of the grounds, at Indian Creek Golf Course. In recent years, he was a welder, at Pioneer (Corteva). Our memories of John, will forever be, his hearty laugh and his impish smile. We take great comfort, in believing that he and Dad are now together. Special thank you, to John’s caring nurses and doctors, in ICU and the incredible Trillium staff, who helped fulfill John’s wish, of being a successful organ donor.
Cremation has taken place and a graveside service will take place in St. Anthony’s Cemetery on Friday May 26, 2023 at 1 PM.
Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
