One can pay respects on his facebook profile:
"Journalism is what someone else does not want printed, everything else is public relations."
"I was born not knowing, and have only had a little time to change that here and there.

Being a very young undergraduate I was somewhat in awe of him initially, but his kindness and friendly manner soon broke the ice...and we chatted regularly once we realized we were both using Rolleiflex cameras (particularly the SLR SL66) underwater. I will always remember him from that and subsequent encounters at dive locations as carrying his big camera to or from a dive always cheerfully whistling a happy tune...
Goodbye Neville...your legacy will live forever.
