Cornelius spent 41 years serving in various capacities with the Pennsylvania Railroad, Amtrak, and Conrail. He was known to be kind, a quick wit, a loving father and a devoted husband. Neil, as he was known, loved to play games and complete puzzles. He would spend his weekends working on automobiles (a passion he developed from his father, an auto mechanic) and in the garden.
Neil is preceded in death by “the love of his life”, Frances. He was extremely proud of his daughter, Linda Lee Tonnesen (Mark) and of his son Frank (Linda), both residing in Fort Myers. They were at his side during his final journey. He is, also, survived by his younger brother Vincent (Martha) , of Springfield, Missouri, and four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. All will be together this summer to celebrate his life.
