Neil James Roger Despins

June 13, 1986 ~ January 14, 2023 (age 36) 36 Years Old


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Neil at the age of 36.

He is lovingly remembered by his children, Austin Courtney and Isabelle Despins; parents, Malcolm and Liz; brothers: Brendon (Sonja), Gerald (Paula), Bruce (Laura); grandparents, Dale Bell, Alphonse Ringuette, Omer Despins (Karen); nieces and nephews: Owen, Jayden, Logan, Riley, Jasper, Bentley, Grae, Maebrie, as well as many aunts and uncles, cousins and an extensive extended family of friends, including his co-workers.

He was predeceased by his grandfather, Gordon Bell and grandmother, Rachel Ringuette. 

Neil was a proud, compassionate, and loving father. He had an unforgettably big heart and kind soul. He was an amazing friend the kind, that would give the shirt of his back no questions asked. Neil was a loving and protective son; his parents refer to him as “My Boy”. He will always be remembered for being the life of the party. He will be forever missed by all who knew him.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at The St. Albert Inn & Suites, Grandin Room, #156 St. Albert Trail St. Albert, Alberta
