Death of Neil McLeod

It is with a heavy heart to have to tell you that Neil McLeod has passed away. He has been our staunchest supporter over the last 10 years, the soul of greenbelt.com, and has been in most of the homes of greenbelt.com users at least once, helping individuals with their internet setup and problems. He has singlehandedly maintained the greenbelt.com website all that time. As you may know, he has been battling cancer for many years, and fought mightily, but succumbed Saturday, July 1. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his wife and family.

Neil McLeod (age 62) of Greenbelt, MD died peacefully on July 1, 2006 at Inova Fairfax Hospital. He is survived by his wife Patty, his dear friends Warren and Betsy Johnston, his parents Col. Glennwood and Mary McLeod of NC, his children and their spouses: Scott and Betsy of MN, Keary and Skip of VA, Heather and Wiley of VA, and Eric of MD. He is also survived by his grandchildren Isabel, Stephen, Lucas, Olivia, Jacob, Madelyn, Colin, Terran, Roy, Sayer and Shane. He was preceded in death by his sister Glenna.

A memorial service will be held Friday, July 7, 2006, at 2:00 p.m. at Fellowship Baptist Church, 8011 Rosaryville Road, Upper Marlboro, MD, with repast to follow.

In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to The American Cancer Society P O Box 699, Vienna, VA 22183 or The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Donor Services P O Box 4072 Pittsfield, MA 01202.
