“Grandfather”: March 29th, 1923 to August 23rd, 2011

Colin Campbell Neeson, father of CCF founder Scott Neeson and brother Norman, died peacefully in Sydney, on August 23rd, 2011 at the age of 88 years.

Simply known as “grandfather” to many hundreds of CCF children and staff, and to the community children around the garbage dump, he was the source and the recipient of enormous love, support and care.

In lieu of flowers, a fund has been established to create a library for the children in the Steung Meanchey community.
