OBITUARY

Arthur E. Brouillard Jr.

July 24, 1953July 4, 2020

Arthur (Art) Brouillard Jr. of Mesa, Arizona passed away at home, peacefully in his sleep, on Saturday, July 4, 2020 from complications of Parkinson’s – MSA. He was 66 years old. Art was born in Cranston, Rhode Island to Arthur and Margaret Brouillard. Art is preceded in death by his parents and baby sister Doreen. Art was an Air Force Veteran and retired as a Production Control Representative in 2018. He is survived by his wife of 48 years Bea; daughter Lynda and grandchildren Dylan, Lacey and Ricky who were the light of his life. He was big brother to Donna Spencer (New Hampshire), Douglas Brouillard (Rhode Island), Cheryl Nelson (Rhode Island), and Allan Brouillard (North Carolina). Art also leaves behind many extended family members in Rhode Island, Florida, and North Carolina who loved him dearly. Art was a loyal friend to many. Art had a deep faith in God and was an active participant and leader for many years in a variety of ministries at All Saints Catholic Church in Mesa, as well as the Diocese of Phoenix Cursillo Movement… De Colores!

In 2010 after the devasting earthquake in Haiti, Art and several parishioners from All Saints started a non-profit to help the poorest of the poor in Haiti. This work lasted for almost 10 years sustained by amazing team members and generous donations from around the country. With a heavy heart Art’s health made it difficult to continue these efforts.

Art will be remembered for his faith… but most importantly his love of family and friends. A Catholic Mass and Interment will take place at a later date.

Art and I attended the same Catholic school, St. James in West Warwick, R. I.
On some Saturdays, we'd meet up at the school yard to challenge each other at basketball. It was a fair match as we were both short.
Rest in peace, Art.

I worked with Art at Tube Specialties for 5 years. It broke my heart when I heard of his passing. He is the epitome of love, generosity, and compassion. I am glad I had the privilege to know Art. I am confident his charity, ABC for Haiti, has made a massive impact in many lives in Haiti.

My condolences to Art's family and friends. I worked with Art for approximately 5 years. I am saddened to hear the news of his passing. I remember all the times we would talk about his upcoming retirement. He used to tell me to live my life to the fullest. Art, I will. I always admired your service work for community and Church. One thing I will always remember about you is when things would get bad at work, you would always raise those eyebrows and sigh. You are a great man and you saved many lives while you were here on Earth, especially in Haiti. For that I know our Lord has a spot up there for you to be reunited with your family. Thank you for all the positive things we talked about, Rest in Peace Art.

I was so sad to hear of Art passing and extend my sincere thoughts and prayers to the family. I worked with Art for several years and have nothing but fond memories. We both shared the love of the White Mountains and his face would light up telling me about his project in Haiti. He was one of the most giving and thoughtful person I know. We definitely lost one of the best.

I remember when he took me fishing for the first time. He told me we need to get up early, it was probably about 5 o'clock in the morning. We went to this pond with my first fishing pole which was one that you put together in pieces. So he was teaching me how to cast out and I caught something on my line but it got away. As I reeled it back in it got caught on a rock and part of the fishing pole went into the water. It took us awhile to get it out and at the point it was funny and he decided that it was time to go. I enjoyed that day because he spent time with me and as the baby of the family it meant a lot. He was and always will be my big brother. Love you Arthur rest in peace

My sincerest condolences to Art's family. I worked with Art for several years. I will never forget his unwavering faith and his sacrificial love for people. We shared many laughs during the time we worked together, as well as many talks about our faith. He was definitely one of a kind and will be missed.
