Robert R. Mongeon of Essex Junction has made his final jump on Feb 7, 2018 and landed safely in the arms of our Lord. RIP Dad Robert Mongeon enlisted in the U.S. Army and served as a Paratrooper as part of the 509th Army Airborne. He has been credited with several night and day jumps throughout Europe and Africa. Upon his honorable discharge from the U.S. Army, Robert returned to his home in Winooski and on January 19, 1946 he married the late Rita E. Martel of Enosburgh Falls. He leaves behind four children Roger Robert and his wife Cathy Couture of Milton, Donald David and his wife Donna Lamphere living in Rhoadesville, Virginia, Colleen Mongeon and Mike of Essex Junction and Barbi Mongeon of Jeffersonville several grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great-grandchildren. Robert R. Mongeon was born on July 1, 1920 and is the eldest son of the late Thomas Mongeon and Marie Langlais of Winooski, VT. His only remaining sibling is his sister Clair (Mongeon) Gregorek and husband William Gregorek of Winooski. His brothers Austin, John, Leo, Paul and Tommy have predeceased him. Throughout his career Bob held many jobs including an auto assembly line worker in Michigan to his final position at G.E. Burlington, until his retirement as their lead machinist. Some of Bob’s loves were square dancing where every weekend he and Rita would be off somewhere kicking up their heels. His love for the outdoors would find him in his canoe paddling down some river or wading some stream looking for the ever elusive trout or black bass. His true passion would develop with his love of archery and hunting his favorite game animal the white tail deer and of course when that season ended than rabbit season was in. Watch out Mr. Snowshoe. I am thankful his passion for the outdoors his love of hunting and fishing which has been passed down to me. It has allowed me the opportunity to spend quality time “waiting” on some mountain side by a game trail hunting deer with DAD at my side. From one service member to another I salute you and thank you for both your service and for the honor of calling you DAD. Rest in Peace and God Bless. In honoring Bob’s request there will be no viewing or service. A private interment will be held at a future date.
