Neil “Tunzaphun” Robert Almeida

September 21, 1984 - August 2, 2022

Neil “Tunzaphun” Robert Almeida, 37, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past six years, formerly of O’Fallon, IL, passed away Tuesday, August 2, 2022 in Port Charlotte, FL. He was born September 21, 1984 in New Bedford, MA.

Neil was of the Christian faith. He was loved by many. Music was his passion, whether it was him DJ’ing or sharing his favorite songs with his friends and family, there was always a tune in his head. Whenever you needed a singing or dancing partner, he was by your side. He embraced the new age of social media and found himself an additional family and redefined what the meaning of family meant. He was loved because of his pure heart. We will miss his boyish laughter, his bright smile, and enormous bear hugs. We are all happier because of Neil, so continue to show love, don’t judge and be positive.

He is survived by his loving father, Robert Almeida of North Fort Myers; his mother, Terry Almeida; his sister, Samantha and brother in law, TJ; his uncle, Mark Almeida; cousins, Shannon Almeida and Hailey Guabello; as well as his closest friends and TikTok family.

A Live Virtual Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from 5PM to 8PM via TikTok.

Memorial Contributions in memory of Neil “Tunzaphun” Robert Almeida are suggested to be sent to his father at: 2814 Cloister St., North Fort Myers, FL 33917.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.

    I’m at a loss for words. I had just brought you up in conversation not too long ago and meant to reach out and now I’m besides myself because I let life get in the way. No matter your situation you always kept a positive attitude and could spread joy to everyone in your path. You will forever be one of my favorite music buffs and bear hugging connoisseurs that I’ve ever been blessed enough to call a friend. Will greatly miss your spirit. Heaven gained a great soul.
