Former Board Member and friend, Neil McGlone,  passed away unexpectedly on November 15, 2021.

Neil was an avid golfer. He volunteered with First Tee-Greater Houston, working with young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life enhancing values and promoting healthy choices through the game of golf.

Neil returned to Pittsburg in 2020 to be closer to family and seek new adventures with his best buddy, Oscar.

Always a joy to be around, Neil will be missed.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Monday, November 22, 2021 at 10:00 AM at St. John XXIII Parish, St. Benedict the Abbot Church in McMurray, PA.
