Neil Schoonderwoerd, 82, of RR1 Sebringville passed away suddenly at his residence on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

Neil was born in Leiden, Netherlands on January 8, 1935. Beloved husband of Josephine Schoonderwoerd (de Jong) whom he married on October 12, 1963. Dear father of Ann Schoonderwoerd Garfield (Randy), Paul Schoonderwoerd (Marg), David Schoonderwoerd (Carolynne), Elizabeth Quinlan (Mike), Richard Schoonderwoerd (Shelley) and Stephanie McIntosh (Darryl).
