It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Neil Porcelli of Highland, NY on February 4th, 2022. Neil was born to Carmela and Vincent Porcelli, at Vassar Hospital in Poughkeepsie, NY on December 13, 1959.
Neil began working for the elevator constructor union in October of 1981. Neil was an elevator mechanic who went on to be a superintendent for the MTA then retired to enjoy the good life. As a patriot he loved the flag, his country, and was a proud member of the NRA. In his free time Neil loved walking the roads surrounding his house to visit family, bike riding with his nieces, going golfing with his wife, and riding his Harley with friends.
Neil was a true family man. He loved spending time with his family, whether it was by the pool, on the patio or at the Sunday dinner table. He spent many weekends traveling to football games, AAU tournaments and baseball tournaments.
Neil is survived by his wife Debbie, his three children, Vincent, Neil, and Angela. His family ever growing and changing, Neil will be loved and cherished by his mother Carmela Porcelli, siblings Donna Gaetano, Vincent, and Joseph Porcelli. Along with his brother in laws Richard Gaetano, Freddy Spector, sister in laws Stephanie Porcelli, Diane Spector, Carol Megale, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was predeceased by his Father and grandparents.
Neil's smile and laugh were contagious. He was a bright soul that will be terribly missed but will live on through his family and friends forever.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
