Death of a Classmate - PX O'Neill


PAUL XAVIER O'NEILL (PX), Lieutenant, USNR (RET), spent ten years in the active reserve, after leaving the Class of 1954 at the U. S. Naval Academy.

PX completed continuing education in Advanced Power Plant Technology, Georgia Tech; Nuclear Fuel Management, MIT and Nuclear Components, Ohio State. He taught engineering at University of Massachusetts, Lowell. In June 1991, PX was inducted as Commodore USNI on board the USS Constitution, moored in Boston Harbor. PX was a trustee of the USN Institute Foundation. He leaves two sisters, Althea and Rita, a daughter, Lorena Watt, and two sons, Paul X., Jr., and Peter X.. PX and his dear wife, Phyllis had been married almost fifty years. She predeceased him (in 2003), as did his two brothers, Bob and Eugene, at a later time. PX passed away on 25 September in Ft. Lauderdale from pneumonia, and was surrounded by his children and his loving companion, Eva Lyons. His funeral was held at St. Pius Roman Catholic Church, Ft. Lauderdale on 2 October 2007.
