O'NEILL [Providence RI Journal, Wednesday 26 Feb 2003] "Profiles / obituaries of The Station [nightclub] fire victims." Nick O'Neill, 18; musician, actor, 'amazing songwriter.' Tall, slim, blond, and 18 years old, Nicholas Philip O'Neill dreamed of being a rock star in a "hair metal" band, his friends say. Party anthems from the '80s were in his blood. He wrote more than 50 of his own songs, catchy tunes about girlfriends and hanging out, and performed them as the lead singer of his band, Shryne. His father, radio personality and "Father Misgivings" creator Dave Kane, said his son was a natural musician from when he was a small child. By the age of 18 he had recorded a CD. "We got him five guitar lessons and he just took off," Kane said. "What really hurts about it," said friend Dave Tessier, 32, "is this kid was just an amazing songwriter. When I met him, the kid was 16 and he'd written all these great tunes. I was in awe of him." Nick was expecting to hear some more good music when he went to The Station on Thursday night with bandmate Jon Brennan. Jon made it out alive. Nick did not. "[Jon] was actually with Nick until the final moments when it went black, and they got separated," said Brennan's mother, Kari Tieger. In addition to being a talented rocker, Nick is remembered as a gifted performer for All Children's Theatre, according to Wrenn Goodrum, the East Providence group's artistic director. "He was always so full of life," Goodrum said. His jokes would break the tension during a tough rehearsal. His smiles would encourage even the younger members of the troupe, who admired him. "He had a special way of working with them so they could find their parts, their character," she said. "Even some of the kids we adults couldn't reach." "Nick and I, we used to goof around," said a friend from the theater troupe, Dan Kenner, 16. Kenner remembers that once, while the rehearsed for a play about the Holocaust, O'Neill's role called for him to come onstage and greet the other people in the room with a kiss on the cheek. It was supposed to be a somber moment. But as he entered, he whispered jokes in the actors' ears, sending them into stitches. "All the other kids would get in trouble," Dan said, laughing. "You could always count on Nick for a joke." He was born in Warwick, a son of Joanne O'Neill of Pawtucket, formerly of Cranston, and Kane, of North Providence. He had lived most of his life in Cranston, attending Cranston East High School before moving to Pawtucket three months ago. Besides his parents, he leaves three brothers, Christian O'Neill of Boston, William O'Neill of Orange County, Calif., and David Kane of North Providence; and his maternal grandfather, Joseph Romanelli of Johnston, and his maternal grandmother, Barbara (Tessitore) Romanelli of Providence. A memorial service will be held today at 7 p.m. in St. Jude's Rectory, 301 Front St., Lincoln.

She had worked in the tax assessor's office at Warwick City Hall for 10 years, retiring in 1985. In the 1940s, she had been an executive administrator for Macy's department store in New York City for five years.

O'NEILL [Providence RI Journal, Friday 25 July 2003] Charlestown - William C. O'Neill, 72, a veteran South County legislator and former banker, died at home Wednesday from complications caused by advanced diabetes and a stroke, his family said. Mr. O'Neill, of 1256 Shannock Rd., had lived for many years in Narragansett and was raised in South Kingstown, where his family moved when he was just a few months old. A bicycling enthusiast, he pushed for the creation of statewide bike paths and wetlands protection during his 22 years in the state legislature -- 4 as a Democratic state representative and 18 as a state senator, including serving as Senate president pro tem from 1983 to 1988. He retired from the legislatures in 1990. The second phase of the William C. O'Neill Bike Path is scheduled to open in South Kingstown later this month. Born on Jan. 20, 1931, in Providence, he was a son of John O'Neill and Eugenia (Faubert). Mr. O'Neill attended Peace Dale Elementary School and graduated from South Kingstown High School in 1948. Friends from those days remember a tall, skinny student who was quick- witted and loved a good joke. "He was a good guy who never put on airs and who always knew who he was," said Town Council President Barbara A. Hackey, a friend since 1939. "And he never changed." Once, when a teacher called on him to present an oral report, he leaped up and delivered it -- with a straight face and a blank piece of paper in front of him. "The teacher never knew," said old friend and former business partner Charles Sweet. "He was a good speaker." After high school, Mr. O'Neill was stationed in Germany with the Army during the Korean War, where he learned fluent German. When he returned to South Kingstown, he attended the University of Rhode Island, graduating in 1957. In 1962, he married Ann Richardson, now president of the South County Tourism Council, and had four children: a daughter, Terry Ellen O'Neill of Chicago; and three sons, Timothy P. O'Neill of Narragansett, Rory O'Neill of Orlando, Fla., and Joseph R. O'Neill, who died of brain cancer at the age of 23 in 1997. For decades, Mr. O'Neill worked for his family's business, the O'Neill Oil Co. He also worked in commercial development and real estate, and as an innkeeper, when he and his wife ran Sweet Meadows Inn and Restaurant in the 1960s and 1970s. He was president of PierBank when it merged with Washington Trust Company, in the 1990s. Under his leadership, PierBank was the only bank in the state to reopen without state assistance after the banking crisis of 1991, Rory O'Neill said. Ann O'Neill remembers her husband coaching various children's teams and avidly following the Red Sox. A stroll along the Narragansett sea wall -- a cherished pastime the couple were able to share together until last year -- usually took two hours. "He knew everyone, so we always had to stop and talk," she said. He received a master's degree in public administration from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government in 1985 and was made an honorary sachem of the Narragansett Indian tribe in the late 1980s. Mr. O'Neill was also a member of the Dunes Club, in Narragansett, and a member of VFW Post 916, in Wakefield. He retired as a captain from the Rhode Island National Guard. U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, who served as Mr. O'Neill's page in the state Senate, called him a man of "integrity and compassion." "He always fought for and believed strongly in ensuring that everyone's voice be heard, regardless of their social status," Kennedy said in a statement. About 15 years ago, a tour boat ran aground in the Narrow River. Mr. O'Neill, who was biking in Middlebridge, watched the boaters struggle for a while and chuckled. Then he tossed his bike and swam out to push the boat back to deeper water, chatting all the while with the couple of dozen passengers. "He was just like that; he'd drop anything in a moment to help someone," Rory O'Neill said. Besides his wife and children, he leaves a brother, Robert O'Neill of South Kingstown; a sister, Arlene Walton of Charlottesville, Va.; and several nieces and nephews. A funeral Mass will be celebrated Tuesday in Christ the King Church, Kingston, at a time to be announced.

O'NEILL (RICHARDSON) [Providence RI Journal, Friday 19 Dec 2003] Charlestown - Ann E. O'Neill, of Shannock Road, president of the South County Tourism Council since 1988, and the area's pioneer in that industry, died yesterday after an illness. Mrs. O'Neill was a well-known figure in the region and news of her death swept through South County by midmorning, clouding an otherwise clear morning, just a week before Christmas and a week after her birthday. "Ann O'Neill was the voice and the face of South County for many years," said David C. DePetrillo, the state's director of tourism and a longtime friend. "I consider her one of the state's true tourism industry visionaries. Not only did she help build the industry in South County, but she helped people see what tourism could do for Rhode Island," he said. Though she knew more about the South County area than many who had lived there all their lives, Mrs. O'Neill was not a native. Born in Central Falls, she was a daughter of the late Joseph V. and Eileen (Forde) Richardson. A graduate of East Providence High School, she ventured to South County for college at the University of Rhode Island, and never left. She had no reason to: while there she fell in love with the area, and with her future husband, the late William C. O'Neill. After the two were married, in 1962, Mr. O'Neill went on to serve for 22 years in the state legislature -- 4 as a Democratic state representative, and 18 as a state senator -- and Mrs. O'Neill dedicated herself to raising the couple's four children: a daughter, Terry O'Neill Hall of Chicago; and three sons, Timothy P. O'Neill of Narragansett, Rory O'Neill of Orlando, Fla., and Joseph R. O'Neill, who died of brain cancer at the age of 23 in 1997. She was there each day when her children returned from school, her daughter, Terry, said, with her favorite question: "Has anyone ever told you how good you look?" Her husband's interest in politics and the community was infectious, and as her children grew up, Mrs. O'Neill became a vice president of the Narragansett Chamber of Commerce from 1980 to 1986, and she was executive director of the South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce from 1986 to 1988. She then was named president of the South County Tourism Council, where she has been credited with building much of the tourism industry in what was once a sleepy section of Rhode Island's coast. She was named Rhode Island's Travel Person of the Year in 1991 by Yankee Magazine. She received the Hope Award from the Rhode Island Commission on Women in 1994, and she won the Rhode Island Tourism Achievement Award in 1997. Mrs. O'Neill's enthusiasm for the area was unrelenting, said Ted Wright, president of the Narragansett Chamber of Commerce. Wright got used to his phone ringing at all hours of the day and night. Invariably, it would be Mrs. O'Neill, excited about whatever idea she'd come up with for South Kingstown or her hometown of Narragansett. "When she took on a project, it was always something to benefit everyone, and she'd always find a way to make it work," Wright said. As an expert on tourism in this area, she was often called upon as a source for all things tourist-related. Mrs. O'Neill's expertise was most recently quoted in the Journal just a week ago, on her birthday. She was a member of the Dunes Club, the Wakefield Rotary Club, the University of Rhode Island Alumni Association, and the Women's Club of South County. She was active with the Health Center of South County and South County Museum, and served as a co-chairwoman of the annual American Cancer Society fundraiser. She enjoyed painting and gardening, and since her husband died, in June, she had most liked walking along the new South County Bike Path, named in his honor. Besides her children, she leaves three brothers, Thomas F. Richardson of Charlestown, Joseph V. Richardson of Sun Lakes, Ariz., and Patrick H. Richardson of Antioch, Calif. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Monday at 10 a.m. in Christ the King Church, 180 Old North Rd., Kingston. Burial will be in St. Francis Cemetery, Peace Dale.
