Obituary

Neil C. St. Onge was born on 03/10/1927 to Carrie and Clayton St. Onge in Newport Center, Vt. He passed away 27 February 2021 peacefully in his sleep at home surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife, of 63 years, Shirley St. Onge, son Kevin St. Onge and his wife Marilyn, daughter Amy Dalpe and her husband Steve, Deana Labreque and her husband Richard. His grandchildren Kelly Kelly-Taylor, Kyle and Konnor Dalpe, Corey and Jordan Cowles and great grandchildren, Leah and Elisa Gutierrez, Myra Kelly-Taylor and Easton and Elliott Dalpe. He was pre-deceased by his sisters Esther Donavan, Erlah Kennisson, and his brother Ross St. Onge. He was also pre-deceased by his daughter Carol Ann St. Onge and a grandson Kevin St. Onge Jr.

Neil proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Korean war and was honorably discharged upon completion of his service. After that he went to work in the construction industry for several years. He then formed the construction company George and St. Onge, with Robert George. After that he went to work for himself. During this time, he worked for several local people and the city of Newport Vermont.

Neil was a force of nature, and truly a great man. He was one of the founding members of the North Country Mountaineers and an avid snowmobiler for many years. He lived an active life right up to the end. Just last year he could often be found on his four-wheeler enjoying the great outdoors. He loved his family, and he had several great friends. He was always a hard worker and he always got the job done. Neil had a way about him that he always looked for the brighter, positive side of life even when most could not see it. He was the very definition of a man’s-man. His wife Shirley’s only request for his obituary was for people to know that he was a Very Good Man.

Anyone who knew Neil, knew that he was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for. He was truly a great man and will be missed by all that knew him. One of his best friends once told him “Neil, you may not be the wealthiest man I know, but you’ll always be the richest.” This has been born out to be true with the love he shared with his family and how the family gave the love back to him.

The family requests in lieu of flowers donations to be given to the Mary Wright HALO Foundation, 1073 Upper Quarry Road, Newport Vt 05855. There will not be a funeral or service for him per his wishes. Please visit awrfh.com to share your memories and condolences.

“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.”

I'm sad to hear of the passing of Neil. I worked with Neil in the late 60's early 70's for my dad Marshall George on construction. Neil and I bought out my dad and formed George & ST Onge . Our first big project was building the additional 9 holes at the Newport Country Club. What remember will always remember is the fun we had snowmobiling in the early 70's We made some of first snowmobile trails in Orleans county and even made a trail to Jeffersonville. Great Memories R.I.P. Neil
