It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Joseph Jean Paul St Jean on Friday, April 7, 2017 at Health Sciences North, after a long and courageous battle with lung disease. Jean Paul was a man full of life who loved his family more than anything. His zest for life extended to his love of music. He was always the first one to pick up his guitar and the last one to put it away. Jean Paul never let a friend work alone. Instead he believed that twice the hands halves the work. He will be remembered as a kind loving man who was always there for everyone, someone who could quickly change a stranger into a lifelong friend. Along with loving his family he loved to camp and fish spending many days at his camp and fishing on the water. He was born in Sturgeon Falls, ON, to the late Arthur and Alice (Roy) St Jean. Loving husband of the late Julia May (O’Connell) St Jean. Beloved father of Suzanne Alemany (Alan), Jim St Jean (Irene) and David St Jean. Cherished grandfather of Matthew Alemany, Scott St Jean (Andrea), Jason St Jean, Ashley St Jean (Devon), Andrew St Jean (predeceased)(Kristen) and great grandfather of Hannah St Jean and one baby boy due in May. Brother of Aurel (Jeannette) both predeceased, Albert (Denise) both predeceased, Simone (predeceased), Madeleine Frappier (Fern), Gertrude Wagner (Herman), brother in law of Dan O’Connell (Lorraine), Morse O’Connell (predeceased), Mary Lapierre (predeceased), Shirley Martel (predeceased) and Catherine O’Connell. He is survived by many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. A special thank you to Tommy for all your compassion, friendship and love over the past eight years as neighbours. As well as the staff on 6 south at Health Sciences North, who treated dad with love and respect and made him smile every day. And to Dr. Zymantis we couldn’t have handled this long journey without you. As per John Paul’s wishes there will be no visitation. A graveside service will be held at a later date.
