John Richard Neville, 80, died peacefully on Tuesday, May 23, 2023 at Hillsborough Nursing Home surrounded by his loving family. He is the beloved husband of Linda (Martel) Neville with whom he shared 56 years of marriage.

John was born in Nashua, New Hampshire on November 5, 1942 and was the son of the late John Robert and Ann (Stack) Neville. He received his education in the Nashua School System and was a graduate of Nashua High School with the class of 1961.

For 40 years, he was employed as a machinist at Bronze Craft until his retirement.

John and his wife, Linda happily spent 17 years wintering in Palm Harbor, Florida where they made many memories and friendships. John was an avid sports fan, football and baseball were his favorites. He loved to cheer on the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox. He was a true handyman and could fix everything and anything and he truly cherished time spent with his two late dogs, Keesha and Jake. He would never turn down taking a ride with them in his truck, anything to make them happy. Above all, he loved to spend time with his family, and he will be deeply missed.
