Updated: State Rep. Dan McNeil, RIP

Dan McNeill at one of several addiction town halls 
State Representative Dan McNeill passed away on Friday. I was completely unaware that he was even ill.

Dan will be remembered as a big man with an even bigger heart who tried to help people suffering from addiction. You can read his obituary here.

Arrangements are as follows:
Wednesday 6-9 PM viewing.
Thursday 11 AM Funeral, burial and Luncheon immediately following.
Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church.
3355 MacArthur Rd Whitehall PA 18052

The luncheon will take place at the American Club Pavilion on Coplay.

It was Danny’s great wish to make sure his beloved Granddaughter MacKenzie “Kenzie” would be able to go to college. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made toward the education fund established for his granddaughter “Kenzie". Checks may be made payable to Jeanne McNeill and mailed to 444 Pershing Blvd, Whitehall, PA 18052.

Dan was a good man. I hope someone will champion his causes against addiction at the state level. He will be missed by all who knew him
