Virginia Beach - Alexander "Mac" McNeill Jr., 86, passed away on September 10, 2011. He was surrounded by love from his family and friends near and far. He was born on a farm in Wade, NC on April 25, 1925, the son of Alexander and Rebecca (Abernethy) McNeill. Alexander graduated from Wade Central High School, signed up to join the US Navy at age 17 during WWII, and proudly served for 26 years. His love was for flying and he served as a pilot in several different squadrons. He wore many other hats which included air operations, teaching, administration, and ship navigation. He had the privilege of working with the first NATO exchange students, and his career took him all over the world.

Alexander married Louise Pelton on June 10, 1967. He worked in Civil Service as a computer engineer and project manager for Dam Neck FCTC for 35+ years until his retirement. He was a member of Thalia Trinity Presbyterian Church. An avid lover of nature and sailing out on the Chesapeake Bay, he was known for his kind heart, friendship, delicious slurpee making, and ability to enjoy the moment. He lived his life grounded in his marriage, family and friends.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Louise; 5 children, Alexander McNeill III (Rudelle) of Mechanicsville, VA, Douglas McNeill of Durham, NC, Rebecca (McNeill) Puckett (John) of Ashburn, VA, Laura McNeill (Scott Hasse) of Madison, WI, and Kathryn (McNeill) DeChaine (Mike) of Prosper, TX; 10 grandchildren; 2 step-grandsons; 1 great-grandchild; and many nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, his first wife, Bea Porter, and sister, Patsy Bryan.
