Alistair Ross Neilson of Port Richey, Florida, passed away suddenly June 1, 2018.
Born in Kilmarnock, Scotland to Helen and Peter Neilson, who predeceased him, as well as his daughter Lorna.
Survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Phyllis (Grae), daughters Jill of London, England, Lu Aloupas of Virginia Beach, VA, Camille Engel (Kevin) of East Greenbush, NY; brother Iain (Jill) and sister Elanne Brice, all of Scotland.
Alistair cherished his grandchildren; Holly, Tiffany, Chelsea, Gabriel, Christopher, Abigail, Katharine, George and Evelyn, and the littlest love of his life, his great-granddaughter, Octavia.
Alistair was schooled in Edinburgh and went on to his profession as a commercial architect.
Moving to the United States in 1993, Alistair settled in Port Richey. He was a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, an avid golfer, and reader of many books, (always more than one at a time); retired private pilot; lover of history and current events.
His most proud moment was in May of 2006, when he became a United States citizen.
Nothing made him happier than his marriage to Phyllis, working side by side with her at Greek Unique in Tampa; having his Dunkin Donuts each morning; watching Fox News at night; traveling and being a part of the grandchildrenâ€™s milestone events.
A true gentleman with old school charm and class.
Calling hours at Dobies Funeral Home on Congress Avenue, from 4-7pm, Monday June 4.
