William "Bill" St. Onge, 62, passed away at his home in Bedford, New Hampshire on November 5, 2021, surrounded by family, after a long and courageous battle with heart disease.
Bill was a loving and devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend. He had a special bond with each of his children and stepchildren and was a selfless advocate working tirelessly for the benefit of his special needs son. He was born in November 1958 and grew up in Manchester, NH attending St. Augustine Elementary School, Central High School, and NH Technical School earning an Engineering Technical degree.
He worked for KMC Systems/Elbit Systems of America in Merrimack, NH in manufacturing and operations for 38 years, and was especially proud of the teams he led on multiple projects over the years to build medical instrumentation before his retirement in 2019.
Bill loved to travel with his wife, and together they shared many adventures in Greece, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Italy, France, Costa Rica, Austria, Switzerland, and most recently New Zealand and Australia. He enjoyed their home on Lake Winnipesaukee and loved boating with friends and family. Bill was a true New England sports fan and loved nothing more than cheering on his teams at Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Patriots games. He had an infectious, fun-loving personality and easily made friends at all phases of his life. He will be sorely missed by family and friends and the many people he touched along the way.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents, Roger and Lillian.
He is survived by his loving wife, Karen; sons Chris and Matt; stepson Brian Conti (Colleen); stepdaughter Lauren Glenn (Johnnie); sisters Susan Duhaime (Roger), Anita St. Onge, and Gloria Andrews (Jeff); granddaughters Claire and Layla; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude for the wonderful nurses, physicians, and staff who cared for Bill at Mass General Hospital during the last four months. They are truly an amazing team.
Visiting hours at Lambert Funeral Home & Crematory, 1799 Elm St., Manchester, will be held on Thursday, November 11th from 7 to 9 pm. Funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family.
