OBITUARY:

Philip T. Neergaard of Maine, formerly of Winchester, passed away suddenly at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital on Tuesday, August 1st. The youngest child of the late Edward and Mary (Dawson) Neergaard, he was forty-eight years of age.

Born in Winchester, Philip was raised and educated in Winchester, graduating from Winchester High School, Class of ’77. A terrific athlete, Philip was very active in all sports especially during his school years. After graduating, Philip’s adventurous spirit lead him to a twenty year career with the United States Merchant Marines during which time he traveled extensively throughout the world. After retiring from the Marines, Philip made his home in the familiar surroundings of Qgunquit, Maine, where his family had vacationed every summer.

While residing in Maine, he found employment at the renowned Cliff House Resort in Ogunquit.

Philip thoroughly enjoyed his family and they enjoyed his wonderful sense of humor and sometimes silliness. He loved animals, especially dogs, and never passed up an offer for ice cream. Fine dining was also a favorite experience which he enjoyed sharing with family and friends.

Philip was a member of the Seafarer’s International Union and the American Maritime Officers Union.

  1. I am a descendent of John William Neergaard, who emigrated from Denmark to the US about 1850 and founded a chain of pharmacies in Manhattan. Another Neergaard (Julius de Neergaard) who emigrated to the US about 1890, also founded a chain of pharmacies, this in Brooklyn (one or two still carry the Neergaard name).

    If you are interested in such genealogy, I can give you a descendents chart and other data on the Neergaard family all the way back to the first of our name, Thomas Madsen of Nedergaard.

    With my sympathy,

    Richard H Neergaard
