December 2, 1964 - September 29, 2021
On Wednesday, September 29, 2021, our gracious and mighty God, saw a different plan for our humble and beloved athlete, Lee Vernon McNeill. Affectionally called “Verna” by his family. Our Father sent an angel to Cape Fear Medical Center to bring him home, to rest and be loved and be in peace. Lee was born on December 2, 1964 in Robeson County to Charlie and Nellie McNeill of St. Pauls NC. Lee was a humble and yet modest man who often gave more of himself than what was expected to receive. He always had a smile on his face, knew how to brighten up a day with his sense of humor, and joking demeanor. Lee had a huge heart for helping other and he had a huge passion for track and field. Lee was a dedicated employee at Amazon, along with Bojangles where he served over 30 years. He was also a track and field coach and mentor of Soaring Eagles Track Club, where he spent a lot of his time training the youth within the community. Lee will be remembered by his humbleness, along with his hard work, dedication, amazing talents and abilities. He will also be mostly remembered as a Son, Brother, Father, Cousin, Nephew, Uncle, Grandfather, Mentor, and Coach. Lee you will be deeply missed. Preceding Lee in death, his father, Charlie E. McNeill, one sister, Mary “Pam” McNeill, one half-brother, William Smith and nephew, Quinton R. McNeill. He leaves to cherish his memories a daughter, Leia V.
