William E. Neil, 86, of Central Point, Ore., passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side. Bill was born January 29, 1925, in St. Cloud, Minn. He and his wife, Elaine, were married 63 years and shared an extraordinary life together.

They moved to Southern Oregon in 2000, where they met many wonderful friends. Living at Twin Creeks Retirement for the past three years was one of the best and happiest chapters of their lives.

Bill is survived by his children, Janet (Duane), Billy and Nancy; four grandsons; and one great-grandson.
