Obituary of Neil C. Calkins

Calkins, Neil of Tonawanda, NY entered into rest April 14, 2022; Beloved husband of Sharon (nee Mueller); devoted father of Rachael (Scott) Phillips and Mitchell Calkins; adored son of the late Charles Calkins and Regina O’Mara; loving brother of Kurt (Sally), Eric (Sylvia) and the late Glen (Victoria) Calkins; cherished brother in law of Kathy Glenn and the late Bob (Sheryl) Mueller; dear uncle of Jessica (Joel) Colson, Leanne, Shannon and Lauren Mueller, Mika Calkins, Kelly (Michael) Miller, Brett and Brady Calkins, Jeffrey, Jordan and Timothy Calkins, Timmy, Dustin, Taylor, Nichole and the late Justina Denny; revered great uncle of Jackson and Jacob Colson. Neil worked as a CNC machinist for over 35 years. He loved spending time with family and friends, gardening, home projects, taking long drives and trips with his high school sweetheart of 42 years. He was especially proud of his children and supportive of their passions throughout their lives.  Neil took care of those he loved in his own down-to-earth, humble manner with plenty of off-the-cuff zingers thrown in.  He will be greatly missed. Family and friends may visit LOMBARDO FUNERAL HOME, 885 Niagara Falls Blvd., near Eggert, Amherst, NY on Saturday May 7th from 12PM – 4PM where a prayer service will immediately follow.  In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Neil’s honor to www.Roswellpark.org or www.BeTheMatch.org.  Online condolences at www.lombardofuneralhome.com
