Neil G. Wycoff

Neil G. Wycoff, a man whose talents and kindness touched the lives of many, passed away suddenly on June 14, 2024 after a valiant battle with cancer. He was 73. Neil's brilliant mind and artistic soul left an indelible mark on the world.

Neil was a masterful wood carver and multimedia artist whose creations were so exquisite that 26 of his pieces were donated to the Edward Gorey Museum in Yarmouth, MA. His creativity was not limited to the visual arts; he was also a prolific playwright. One of his favorites was “Pardon Me I Must Be Going,” which was about dying too young with so much more life to live here on Earth.

Neil's academic achievements were equally impressive. He earned a Master’s in Counseling. He became an LCPC and dedicated five years of working with autistic children at the Little City Foundation in Illinois.

Beyond his professional pursuits, Neil was a skilled home rehabber. His proficiency in plumbing, electrical work, and carpentry allowed him to breathe new life into countless homes. 

Hailing from Glenview, Illinois, Neil made wonderful lifelong friends. They all were there when Neil got drafted into the Army (He was #8). “Service with a Smile” was another of his plays about his Army experience.

Neil moved to New York, Los Angeles and Chicago where he began his marriage to Noelle Wycoff for over 36 years. They moved to Weymouth in 2020.

An avid poker player, Neil was a regular at Weymouth Elder Services, where his love for games shone brightly. His quick wit and good humor made him a favorite at the table, and his laughter was contagious. Neil's patience and kindness were beyond measure, and he was known for his gentle spirit.

Neil loved Weymouth, all the neighbors on Wachusett Road and the friends at the Senior Center and he was so very happy there.

Neil G. Wycoff will be remembered as a man who lived life with gusto, and a boundless capacity for kindness.

His legacy of laughter, art, and compassion will continue to inspire all who were fortunate enough to know him.

He leaves behind his adoring and loving wife Noelle and his cherished sister Gail Wycoff of Glenview, IL.

Predeceased by his brother, Keith L. Wycoff and his parents, Lawrence and Lois (Henricks) Wycoff.

Funeral service will be celebrated on Monday at 9 AM in Holy Family Church in Rockland with a burial of Neil's urn directly following.


“Make me an Angel

That flies from Montgomery

Make me a poster

 of an old Rodeo

Just give me one thing

 That I can hold onto

To believe in this livin’

 Is just a hard way to go”

 -John Prine
