Albert "Al" St. Germain, 88, of Grandview, MO, passed away peacefully January 18, 2021. Al was born October 7, 1932, the seventh of eight children, to Arthur L. and Alma St. Germain in Waltham, MA. He attended parochial schools and graduated in 1954 from UMass, Amherst, where he met his wife Rosemarie. They married in 1956. Al joined the Air Force and had a long, distinguished career which included being stationed in Washington State, Hawaii and Maryland before retiring in Grandview, MO. His first 10 years were spent flying cargo and passengers from the North Pole to South America, to remote Pacific Islands, and to Europe in the C-124 Globemaster, the largest cargo aircraft in the 50s and early 60s. He also served tours in the Philippines and Vietnam. In 1966, he was assigned to the 89th Military Airlift Wing (Special Air Missions) at Andrews AFB, MD. His five-year tour included flying high level administration officials, including Presidents Truman, Johnson, Nixon, and their families, Generals Westmoreland and Bradley, Henry Kissinger, and many others. He was then transferred to Richards-Gebaur AFB, where he retired in 1975 as a Lieutenant Colonel after 20 years of service.
After retiring, he pursued a career in real estate for eight years. Then in October 1982, he accepted a position with Lockheed Aircraft International Corporation in Saudi Arabia as a pilot advisor to the Royal First VIP Squadron, flying members of the Royal Family, military officers, and foreign dignitaries. After returning from Saudi Arabia in May of 1985, he spent four years in Oklahoma City working for the FAA, designing instrument approach procedures for pilots to use when landing in bad weather, then transferred to the FAA office in Kansas City, where he was the Manager of the Kansas City Flight Procedures Office until his retirement.
In his free time, he and Rosemarie enjoyed attending a variety of local performing arts, with a favorite being the Kansas City Symphony. Al was a member of many organizations, including the VFW, the Missouri Pilots Association, and a local railroad club, given his lifelong love of trains. Additionally, his strong Catholic faith influenced him to become highly involved with Serra Club and other organizations within the church.
He is survived by his five children, Chris (Margie) St. Germain, Lisa (Rusty) Mason, Marchell (Terry) Dolar, Janelle (Mark) Heald, and Karen (Steve) Cissel; eight grandchildren Kristin (Zach), Laura (Jacob), Rusty (Kristie), Tony, Max, Charlie, Colson, and Curtis; and five great-grandchildren Ashlyn, Emma, Brooklyn, Jack, and Baby Girl on the way. Al was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years, Rosemarie, and his parents and seven siblings.
Due to COVID, a private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Coronation of Our Lady Church . Interment with military honors will be at Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
