Gregory Leonard McNevitts, “Greg”, age 63, passed away peacefully after a short illness at University Hospital, London, Ont. on December 4th, 2019, supported by family.
Greg is predeceased by his parents, Anthony and Mary Louise, and his older brother Stephen (Cherie). He is survived by his son Justin, and his siblings Mark (Marilyn), Martha Finerty (Dan), Jane McCutcheon (Gary) and Jerome (Millie) as well as his nieces and nephews.
Greg was definitely the athlete in the family - playing both competitive hockey and football at Brebeuf College School and Georges Vanier Secondary School. His mother was shocked to learn he had won the All Star Award when he was supposed to be sidelined with broken ribs. Greg joined the RCMP on his 19th birthday and was stationed in several rural communities across British Columbia over his 22 year career. Upon retirement he continued his embrace of small town communities living in Courtney and Port Hardy BC before moving back to Ontario. Greg worked for MDL Doors in Brussels ON before settling in Goderich where he enjoyed working for the local Boston Pizza restaurant and where his wit and love of conversation were truly appreciated by friends and customers.
Greg’s hole in one at the age of 14 ensured a lifelong love of golf. He enjoyed decades of golf with his brothers and friends including countless games at Whitevale, and vacations to Myrtle Beach and beyond… and of course the many requisite golf stories.
A celebration of life for Greg will be held at a later date. Donations in his memory can be made to the Goderich-Huron YMCA-519-336-9622 or a charity of your choice.
