ST. ONGE, Richard – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Richard St. Onge at Bluewater Health on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at the age of 65. Beloved husband of Mary Leigh (Copeland). Dear father of Jennifer Archer, Sarah Hemstreet, Angela St. Onge and Ashley Glover (Noah). Loving Grampa to Dustin, Brandon, Caleb and Colton Archer, Carter and Colby Hemstreet, Hayden, Kiera, Louisa and Ben St. Onge and Hailey, Peyton, Emily and Seth Glover. Brother of Felix St. Onge (Elizabeth), the late Robert (Evelyn), Lydia Baker (Eric) and Mike St. Onge (Annette). Predeceased by parents Felix and Carmelle St. Onge.
What Richard’s kids love to remember is when growing up our dad would always squeeze our cheeks telling us how cute we were and always wanting to play the Santa role at Christmas handing out gifts saying HO!HO!HO! And chasing us in the kitchen because we were never allowed to pick at the turkey until it was ready. He loved to take us camping as kids and we loved how he always worked so hard for us to make sure we never went without and how he always loved to joke and play pranks on us sisters and most of all we loved how he always was such a good listener and patient with us and a best friend.
At Richard’s request, cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to the McKENZIE & BLUNDY FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CENTRE, 519-344-3131. Messages of condolence & memories may be left at www.mckenzieblundy.com.
