Steven Lee Monjon

April 28, 1955 - March 9, 2021

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.

  • Carol and family, this is heartbreaking news. My deepest sympathies to you all. Sending love, hugs, and prayers.

  • Steve, I hope you hear this as I’m writing. I have many awesome memories of our collaborations on original music and the many hours we spent recording our originals in your parents basement. We were schoolmates, roommates and band mates. My hope is to keep your music alive and not let it fade away.. I had always admired your song writing skills and their meaning behind some of the songs. You were an inspiration and I will miss you in this world. I hope you’ve found peace now being with the Lord and being reunited with your Mom and Dad. One day we will all join you and I just know the first thing you’ll say is let’s get the band back together.

    Rest In Peace my friend
    Jeff

  • Wow! The memories that can flooding back were numerous. All the music we played together in our much younger years, the many trips to the beach and of course the many trips to Square Pond in Maine. Steve spent numerous hours fishing at our boat dock in Maine. He was very content sitting in the sun and waiting for the fish to bite. We cooked lots of fresh fish over a fire and had lots of laughs. You will be missed my friend!!

  • We are still numb. We will desperately miss our visits, our talks and many texts. You will forever be a part of us. You were always a kind hearted man whose smile just lit up your face. And when you laughed you had a look that you knew something a little mischievous was going on. You were looking forward to retirement and we talked about what we would do together. Our comfort is thinking your Mom needed you. We will treasure our wonderful memories. The world is such a sadder place without your big heart to share. We miss you and love you and are blessed for the times we shared.
