Passed away on July 9, 2020

On July 9, 2020, our loving “Papa” left his earthly family to join his loved ones in heaven. Alfred J. Boucher was born December 19, 1922 in Baker Brook, New Brunswick. He was the son of Joseph and Delina (Belanger) Boucher.

He is survived by his loving wife of 77 years, Anita Pelletier. He was 16 and she was 14 when they met. Their story is a legendary love story. During his weakest moments he still murmured her name and always worried about her. At the end, he reached for her hand for a last goodbye and peacefully slipped away. Alfred was very close to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. They called him “Grand Papa.”

He is survived by his four children; Donald (Gisele), Shirley (Sal), Dick (Linda), and Sandy. He is leaving eight grandchildren; Jamie, Pamela, Travis, Nicole, Jody, Melissa, Shannon and Sunsearae. He is also leaving 12 great grandchildren; Hunter, Haydon, Jenna, Jalee, Audrey, Greta, Grace, Matthew, Michael, Taylor, Jordan and Derrick.

The heart is never ready, the time is never right to say goodbye. We will always cherish his unconditional love, his sense of humor and hospitality as well as all the sweet memories he gave to all who knew him. Online condolences may be left for Alfred’s family at www.fortingrouplewiston.com.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Russell Park Manor for the wonderful care they provided to our “Fred.”
