Neil was born on September 24th, 1949, son of the late Nathaniel C. Andrews and Mildred L. (MacDonald) Andrews. He was a lifelong resident of Manchester and an active member of the community through his police work, his company N.C. Andrews Co. Heating, Manchester Club, and numerous voluntary positions. He was also proud to portray Chief Masconomo in the town’s 350th Anniversary Pageant, following in his grandfather’s footsteps from the 250th Anniversary.
Neil served for almost 40 years on the Manchester Police Department working his way up from Beach Patrol to the rank of Sergeant when he retired in 2011.
