Neil leaves his wife Eleanor, plus two daughters Martine and Leone.
In October, Eleanor revealed how upset her husband was after the death of the James Bond star and her sense of loss was compounded by not being able to travel to be by her brother’s side.

I would have gone but of course given the times we’re in, no one can travel anywhere for any reason so that’s annoying too.
Eleanor revealed that Neil was also battling a ‘tummy virus’ at the time and Sean’s son Jason informed him of her brother’s passing.
