Neil Garfield Midgley



It is with heartfelt sadness that the family announces the sudden and unexpected passing of Neil Midgley on January 30, 2015 at the age of 65.

Neil leaves to mourn, his loving wife of 43 years, Irene (née Miller); his children, Twila Grower (Leo) of London, UK, Shauna Wasik (Luke) , of St. Albert and Ryan Midgley (Cori) of Fort Saskatchewan; two grandsons, Marcus Wasik and Noah Midgley; his brother, Allen Midgley (Sharon); mother-in-law, Mary Miller; sister-in-law, Helen; brothers-in-law, Ed Miller (Loretta) and John Miller; along with numerous extended family and friends.

He was predeceased by his parents, Garfield and Olive Midgley; brother, Frank Midgley, father-in-law, Fredrick Miller, and brother-in-law, Kenneth Miller.

Neil was born in Islay, AB on April 20, 1949 to Garfield and Olive Midgley. He graduated from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology with a degree in Carpentry and worked as a Construction Superintendent and pursued a career that took him throughout the three western provinces.

Neil and Irene married in 1972 and welcomed three children into their lives, they were all the most important part of his life. Life only got better in May 2013 and January 2014, when he received his two grandsons, Marcus and Noah. To him, his life was now complete.

Neil was a devoted father, a dedicated employee to whomever he work for and an avid animal and nature lover. He enjoyed camping, spending time talking to his pets and building or reorganizing his “office.” He often spent his leisure time relaxing in his hot tub, watching sports and watching “his” bluejays fight over peanuts. He was a good humoured, gentle and welcoming man who loved a good family get-together and an opportunity to set off some fireworks. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.

Prayers will be held at Connelly-McKinley St. Albert Funeral Home, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert on Friday, February 6, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held at 10:30 am on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at St. Charles Catholic Church, 17511 -112 Street, Edmonton.

In Loving Memory of
Neil Garfield Midgley
