STEEP FALLS — Paul E. St. Onge, 64, of Steep Falls, passed away peacefully on December 6, 2022 after a brief battle with gallbladder cancer, surrounded by his wife and children at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough. He was born on February 5, 1958 in Covina, California, one of four children to the late Bob and Louise (Cote) St. Onge.
Paul was a graduate of the Mt. Ararat High School class of 1976. He was a 4th Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus. Paul loved nature and the forest. He pursued several hobbies throughout his life including hunting, fishing, archery and learning to make his own bows, white water kayaking and motorcycling. Paul found jazz music very calming and made friends easily with people. He adored his grandchildren.
He was a prime example for his children and grandchildren to set their minds on things and achieve them. A lifelong learner and jack of all trades, Paul had several different careers that interested him. He has held department head positions for Hannaford, earned his license as a master electrician, earned a degree in computer science and worked in IT at the Maine Medical Center. He also earned his pilot’s license and CDL. He particularly enjoyed the rides he took to Boston on Concord Coach.
Paul is survived by a loving wife, Cheryll St Onge, whom he has loved for 42 years; son John St Onge and his wife Nichole of Gorham, daughter Kate Patten and husband Shaun of Gorham; four grandchildren, Josephina, Siegfried, Fey and Sullivan; Sister Margaret Patterson and brothers Robert and George St Onge.
Sincere thanks to the Hospice of Southern Maine Staff for their compassionate care for Paul and his family.
