Retired Marsh broker David McNeill died suddenly on April 27, aged 64.

Sydney-based Mr McNeill started his career in the 1970s at NRMA, moving on to Sedgwick, which later merged with Marsh where he worked until retiring in 2016.

“His attention to detail was well known and cherished by many and he leaves a legacy of always putting the client first,” Rob Lasovski, Marsh’s Executive Director, National Corporate & Commercial Leader, told

“Dave was a great mentor, generously sharing his knowledge and encouraging his team members to become self-reliant and take responsibility.”

Mr McNeill was a passionate St George and Sydney Swans supporter and was “never short of conversations,” Mr Lasovski said.

“He will be sadly missed by family, friends and colleagues.”

Mr McNeill’s life was celebrated on Thursday at the St George Motor Boat Club in Sans Souci. He is survived by his wife Frances Foote and sons Adam and Taylor and grandson Hudson.
