John Arthur Boudreau
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John "Junior" Arthur Boudreau. He was born in Antigonish in 1941 the son of the late Emmett Boudreau and Cecelia (Keefe) Boudreau.
We will remember him for his love, generosity, intelligence, creativeness, strength, courage, and grandpa pranks. Family was very important to John, he was always happiest while surrounded by loved ones. He especially enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren and always looked forward to their visits. John spent his evenings playing cards at St. Andrews, Club 60, and Arts Building with his wife and friends. He had a tremendous work ethic, a true jack of all trades, and always helped his neighbors and strangers when he could. He worked extremely hard for those he loved and asked for little in return. When he wasn’t with family or friends, John took great pride in creating and building miniature dories, lobster traps and lighthouses, which were created as an expression of his heritage and he leaves as a legacy with his grandchildren. He enjoyed spending most of his time outdoors, nurturing his flowers, vegetables, and birds. He was a devout Catholic who lived true to his faith. Although we will miss his smile and his love, we find comfort in his fondest memories.
He is survived by his beloved soulmate of 57 years Margaret "Peggy" (Dort) and children Albert Boudreau, Robert Boudreau (Maria Norris), Michelle Boudreau, Kimberley Grant (Keith), and grandchildren Jeffrey, Laura, Devin, Leah, Joshua, Molly, Rachel, his sister Margaret "Peggy" Haines (Ronnie).
He was predeceased by his brother, Chester Boudreau.
