Niel passed peacefully on April 3rd 2023 at the Almonte General Hospital holding hands with his beloved wife of 44 years Elizabeth Ann Poulsen and daughter Rebecca. Niel was a respected scientist for A.E.C.L. in Chalk River for many years before turning to teaching in Chemistry, Math and Physics. Niel remained an active member of his church and contributed to local theatre and arts everywhere he lived. He was often tutoring local youth in math or walking about town enjoying the natural life and artists around him. He will be fondly remembered by his brother Dr Jim Poulsen and his sisters Rae, Lorna and Deidra as well as his children and their spouses; Travis (Macdonald), Christian, Sarah, Joseph, Timothy and Rebecca (Poulsen), Sherry-Lynn (Vasquez) and his grand children Lillee, Charlie, Parker, Maisie and Trip as well as the many others who counted him as family.
