Oneil F. Bourgoin
1934 - 2017
JAY - Oneil F. Bourgoin, 83, known to most as Neil, a resident of Jay, died after a bout with cancer on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017 at his home. He was born April 20, 1934 in Lewiston, the son of Jean Leon Bourgoin and Yvonne Celina (Caron) Bourgoin. He was educated in St. Peter & Paul School and St. Dominic High School, then graduated from Bliss Business College.
He was a communicant of St. Rose of Lima Church in Jay and had been a member of the Lewiston JC's, the LASKI Ski Club, the Rotary Club and obtained his third degree in the Knights of Columbus. He also sang in many choirs. He served time in the U.S. Army, his job entailed Secret Final Clearance. He then worked in sales, receiving many awards and free trips. He enjoyed anything challenging, including: writing letters to the Editor, poetry, music, lyrics. He had his song "Aruba Sunsets" published, and also a book entitled "PRIDE - It's Cause And It's Effects & In Praise of Humility", under the pen name Neilsons & D (Neil Sons & Daughter). Other pleasures were found in carpentry, woodworking, wood carving, building furniture and cabinets, but his favorite was designing. He loved raised beds vegetable gardening - not only digging into the dirt, but also digging into any information to help the successive growth of each item planted. Loving puns and kidding, he caught people off guard with little humorous interjections.
Surviving are his loving wife and true friend, Marilyn Simpson Bourgoin; his son Larry Bourgoin and wife Brenda, his daughter, Lauri Anne Kreiser and husband Paul "Sonny", son Matthew Bourgoin and wife Bethany and his "bowling buddy" son, Marc Bourgoin, also two stepsons, Tim Kachnovich and wife Jessica and Toby Kachnovich and wife Jennifer; 13 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; his brother, "Jos" Leonard Bourgoin and wife Pauline, and his sister Therese Perron and husband Richard; also, many nieces and nephews.
