In Memoriam: Tim St. Onge '15

Timothy St. Onge '15, of Constable, N.Y., died on Friday, May 16, in Canton-Potsdam Hospital, having battled a life-long rare skin disorder, recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.

Tim came to St. Lawrence in 2007, valedictorian of his class at Salmon River Central School. A history major here, he was known to many on campus as an avid hockey fan, devoted especially to the Montreal Canadiens and St. Lawrence's men's and women's teams. Tim could often be found playing a game of street hockey with members of the women's team here on campus.

Also a movie fan, Tim was a regular at Winston Room screenings. He had hoped to complete his degree at St. Lawrence, in order to fulfill a dream of being a teacher. Tim was known and is remembered by many classmates, friends and teachers, for his love of learning, generous spirit and creativity in finding ways to make his life more compatible with his surroundings.

He is survived by his parents, Daniel and Mabel Spinner St. Onge; a brother and sister-in-law; two sisters; his paternal grandmother; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and a nephew.

Calling hours will take place at the Spaulding Funeral Home in Malone on Saturday, May 24, from 1 to 3 p.m., with funeral services following at 3 p.m. Burial will follow in the Briggs Street Cemetery, Westville.
