Obituary - Neil Remi Drouillard

 Drouillard, Neil Remi 

Passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones. Beloved husband of the late Joyce Drouillard. He was a devoted son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather Neil is survived by his sister Joan (Sydney) Hinch. He was a supportive father to his daughters and their spouses Cheryl Ward (Rusty) and Catherine Schuster-Younis (Omar), and his late sons David and James Drouillard. He was much loved by his grandchildren Kristen Oderberg, Kari Schuster, Joshua & Tyler Ward and Marty Drouillard as well as his great grand-children Jacob, Zachary, and Emma Oderberg, and Mila and Stella Ward. 

Neil was born and raised on his family farm in River Canard. He was one of the youngest graduates from the University of Detroit with degrees in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and had a successful career as a General Contractor.

Neil had an adventurous spirit. He enjoyed captaining his boat, scuba diving, sky diving, and snorkeling. He loved Detroit sports, fishing, gardening, and his home in the Cayman Islands. He was a doting grandfather and loved making ice cream and homemade chocolates with his grandchildren. Neil was a man of great strength and love and will be very much missed by his family and friends.

The family expresses deep gratitude to the caregivers who supported the family and to Angela’s hospice. We encourage the support of Angela’s Hospice as a tribute to Neil’s life and family.
