Neil Shannon Kemp



Passed peacefully away April 25, 2015 at The Saanich Peninsula Hospital, Saanichton, BC, at the age of 65, as the result of a sudden stroke. Neil was born in Gander, NL. He worked for BC Ferries for 23 years

before retiring, 2 years ago. Neil was predeceased by his father,

Brian Kemp, in 1973, and leaves to mourn: his mother and

stepfather, Clara and Ken White,

Sidney BC, brothers Ian,

Calgary, AB; and Owen (Carole) Sidney BC, and sister

Lori Kemp, Cumberland, BC. He also leaves to mourn his stepsisters Nancy Allan (Glen) and Diane Kilpatrick

(Gerry), and nieces and nephews.

Left with a profound sadness are his dear friends, neighbors, and BC Ferries coworkers. Neil was an avid runner, musician, and sports fan. He had the biggest, most generous heart, and his acts of kindness were

spontaneous and limitless.

A sincere Thanks to the ER and Palliative Care staff at The Saanich Peninsula Hospital. In Neil’s memory,

Donations may be made to: Heart and Stroke Canada. A celebration of Neil’s life will take place on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at 2:30 pm sharp, at the Summergate Village
