Robert C. McNeill

Postal custodian

Robert C. McNeill, a retired custodian, died Wednesday of lung cancer at his West Baltimore residence. He was 74.

He retired in 1985 after 25 years as a U.S. Postal Service custodian, assigned to the main post office on Fayette Street.

Earlier, he worked in a similar capacity at the old Veterans Administration Hospital on Loch Raven Boulevard and at the Glenn L. Martin Co. in Middle River.

He was born and raised in Red Springs, N.C., where he attended school. During World War II, he served in the Army and was discharged in 1945.

In 1951, he moved to Baltimore, and took up residence on Lafayette Avenue.

"He loved playing cards, talking to people and playing with the neighborhood children," said his daughter, Lois Howell of Baltimore.

Visitation was planned for 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at Albert P. Wylie Funeral Home, 638 N. Gilmor St. A graveside service will be held Tuesday in Red Springs.

In addition to his daughter, he is survived by wife of 48 years, the former Berlina Robinson; a son, George Lily of Baltimore; two brothers, John T. McNeill of Red Springs and Richard McNeill of Lumberton, N.C.; three sisters, Maggie McMillan of Baltimore, Ola Buie of Newburg, N.Y., and Sarah McNeill of Lumberton; five grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
