Obituary: Antonio Pomerleau

Antonio B. Pomerleau, 100, a real estate developer and philanthropist, died Feb. 8 at his Burlington home.
Known for his financial support of myriad projects including Pomerleau Alumni Center at St. Michael's College in Colchester, the Burlington Police Department headquarters and the Burlington Boys and Girls Club, Pomerleau has said, “I’ve been fortunate, and I give back to people who need it.”
In 2016 he delivered a check for $60,000 to St. Paul School in Barton as part of the school’s celebration of its 120th anniversary.
Pomerleau’s brother and sister attended St. Paul School; the family moved to Newport in 1927 where he attended the former Sacred Heart School.
The parishioner of Christ the King Parish in Burlington is survived by his wife of 71 years, Rita Murphy Pomerleau; by his children Ernie, Patricia, Elizabeth, Susan, Dennis, Alice, Rosemary and Grace; by his grandchildren Alexis, Terry, Caroline, Jessica, Lauren, Ali, Charlotte, Drew, Ellen, Madeline, Olivia, Frank and Catherine; and by two great grandchildren, Spencer and Sullivan.
He was predeceased by his sister, Ida, his brother Phil, and his daughters Anne Marie and Ellen.
A funeral for Pomerleau will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Feb. 13 at St. Michael's College in the Chapel of St. Michael the Archangel in Colchester.
