Christopher O’Neill &nbsp(Chris)

Christopher (Chris) O’Neill, 86, passed away peacefully on Sunday October 29th, 2023, at the Brantford General Hospital, surrounded by his family’s love. Born in St. John’s NL to John and Margaret O’Neill, he was the eldest of ten siblings. Chris dedicated many years to working in retail, retiring from Walmart (formerly Woolco) in 1999. However, his true calling was as a hospital orderly in the mental health field, a vocation that brought him immense pride and fulfillment. Chris’s life was full of simple pleasures, such as sharing stories with his family or giving advice on the best local pizza place. He especially cherished driving, as it allowed him to chauffeur his loved ones to important events, especially his grandchildren. With his kind and quietly charismatic nature, Chris had an unwavering commitment to helping those around him.

Survived by his daughter Shannon and Son-in-Law Rob, his devoted caregiver Lucy, grandchildren Blaine, Allison, and Stephanie, as well as his brothers, sisters, and extended family in Ontario and Newfoundland, Chris will be greatly missed. He also leaves behind his newly found family members, Gord, and Gail. Chris’s passing reunites him with his beloved daughter, Katie, and his wife, Edwina.

Family, friends, and anyone whose life was touched by Chris are welcome to attend an Open House at Rob and Shannon’s home (43 Winter Way, Brantford) on December 2nd, between 1-4 pm. This gathering will provide an opportunity for all to remember and celebrate the incredible life of Chris. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Chris’s memory to the Stedman Community Hospice or to a children’s charity of choice.
