February 18, 1935 - May 29, 2020
On Friday, May 29, 2020 Guillermo Neira (“Papi”), loving husband and father of 2 children passed away peacefully at the age of 85 from neuro-endocrine cancer complications. Guillermo is survived by his wife Teresa and his two sons Rodrigo and David, grandchildren Brianne and Isabella, daughters in law Kim and Kerry and brothers & sisters Clara, Nestor, Olga, Esteban, Roberto and Cristina. Papi also leaves behind a number of special nieces and nephews and list of friends who love him dearly. He will be missed by all who were fortunate to know him. Guillermo was born February 18, 1935 in Bogota Colombia. Papi married Maria Teresa Osuna in 1966 and relocated to the United States in 1967. Papi enjoyed life to the fullest through his most valuable pleasures like spending time with family, collecting toys, listening to classical music and driving his car. Papi had a heart of gold, was funny, hardworking, was kind to everyone and treated people with respect. He fought cancer during a pandemic and during social and political unrest. If more people were like Papi, the world would be a much better loving and happy place. Although we feel empty and wounded without him, he brought everyone much happiness and joy which we will cherish in our hearts and minds forever. A Catholic mass service is scheduled for 11:30 AM Friday, July 3rd at St. Joseph’s Parish in Kings Park followed by the burial at 1:45 at Pinelawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery. A special online Tribute site is available to make it easy for friends and family to share Papi’s memories.
