Obituary of Jean-Louis Boucher
Born in Hearst, Ontario on November 29, 1937, in his 86th year, Jean-Louis Boucher peacefully passed away at the Welland Hospital, on December 27, 2022. He now joins his beloved wife Louisette (née Bolduc) Boucher in Heaven. Forever cherished by his son Norman (Cindy) Boucher. Treasured brother of; Leopold (Marcelle), Raymonde (Len) Tays, Raymond (Yolande), Charles (Réjeanne), Florence, Michel (Carole), Donald (Thérèse), Réal, Serge (Lise) and Alain (Debbie) Boucher. Jean-Louis will be missed by his sister-in-law Jane, many nieces, nephews, extended family, friends, neighbours and former colleagues. Predeceased by his parents Florent and Lina (née Letourneau), as well as his siblings Marcel and Huguette Boucher.
Jean-Louis spent his early years helping his father with the family plumbing business. He finished his final high school years in Ottawa while returning home for the summers. Upon completing his Mechanical Engineering degree at McGill University, he worked in Drummondville where he met and married his soul mate Louisette December 1967. They soon relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico where he obtained a Masters in Business Administration. Settling in Tampa, Florida they embraced the birth of their son Norman. While working at GTE international he was offered a three-year career enrichment opportunity that brought him and his family to Sidi-Bel-Abbès, Algeria. This is where they made wonderful memories exploring much of Europe. Returning to Florida they found much joy at their special oasis along the Withlacoochee River near Dade City, which they affectionately called their “River House”. After losing the love of his life in 2004, he retired in Tampa, where he spent the majority of his time before moving back to Welland, Ontario to spend his remaining year close to family. Thank you to the 3 south medical team at the Welland hospital site for providing such excellent compassionate care to our dearly departed Jean-Louis.
