Steven Lee Monjon, a longtime resident of Newark, DE, passed away unexpectedly in his home on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, at the age of 65. He was preceded in death by his parents, Virginia (Koerner) and Terry Monjon.
Steve was born on April 28, 1955 in Kankakee, IL. He attended Newark High School and graduated in 1973. A lifelong lover of music, Steve played guitar in many bands and even wrote his own music in his spare time. He owned a trading card and collectibles shop called All Pro Sports for many years on what is now South Main Street in Newark, and held on to his love of collecting well throughout his life, particularly antiques and collectibles. Steve was a manufacturing technician at W.L. Gore and Associates for 24 years, and he sold collectibles at Aunt Margaret’s Antique Mall for approximately 15 years.
He was known by his friends and family to be helpful, generous and kind. Steve was a cherished soul and he will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. The most important part of Steve’s life was his son, James, who he was so proud of and loved dearly.
He is survived by his wife, Carolyn (Angeloni) Monjon of Newark; son, James Monjon (Jillian) of North Wales, PA; step-children, Erin (John) Angeloni of Swedesboro, NJ, Michael (Ashley) Angeloni of Newark and Matthew (Jen) Angeloni of San Diego, CA; step-grandchildren, Harper of North Wales, PA, and Ariana, Dominic, Stella and Milana of Newark; sister, Barb Monjon of Newark; and his niece and nephew, Rebecca and Gregory Blessing, both of Newark.
All services and interment will be held privately.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the Newark Police Department for their phenomenal support in their time of need, Vernon Tweed for being an exceptional friend, and neighbors, Gene and Dee Niland, for always going above and beyond.
