Nepean Rowing Club (NSW)
The following tribute for Neil Joines was published on the Rowing NSW website on 16th March 2020.
The thoughts of Rowing NSW and the extended rowing community are with Penrith Rowing Club as they mourn the passing of club member Neil Joines.
Neil was heavily involved as a volunteer at Penrith Rowing Club and was also a friendly face within the Rowing NSW Boat Driver Team who frequently assisted at SIRC regattas.
Charlotte Toose Cutler, Head Coach of Junior Rowers at Penrith Rowing Club said, "Neil was an incredible man who always showed up with a shining cloth in one hand and all the tools in the other to help make our club and boats the best it could be. His kindness and dedication, fuelled through his curiosity of the sport, made him a valued member of our club, and we will miss his presence and smile immensely.”
A service will be held for Neil at Castlebrook Memorial Park, Rouse Hill on Wednesday 18 March at 10am. A celebration of Neil’s life will then be held at Nepean Rowing Club.
