In addition to his daughter, he leaves his sisters Marguerite, Teresa, Cecile, and his brother Herman; grandchildren Richard, David and Melanie and all their families remain to live and love in his memory.

Although we met just a couple of times, I am so grateful to have had such a kind, loving man cross my path. Mr B's honor, respect, courage and faith have stayed with me all these years and his memory will sustain a lot of us for years to come. God has blessed his family and friends with a very special man.
Prayers, love & hugs,

Dear Karen, I was shocked to hear of your dads passing. I am so very sorry to hear this. He was a true gentleman and a great neighbor, he will be sadly missed. He was like a grandfather to all my children through out the years, and they loved him so much . We will never forget his kindness. I am sure he is at peace now in a much better place, with your wonderful mom. Our prayers are with you and your family, at this time. Love Sharyn D'Ambra & Family

To the Boudreau family:
Our sincere condolences to you at this difficult time.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
Some of my BEST memories were being at the club and seeing Joe walk out of the woods with a saw in one hand and pruner in the other or driving his pickup down the fire road full of cut up brush, he cleared a whole field one year by himself. We were always so amazed on what he could do. He would look at the group of guys and give us that big smile that only he could give.
I would tell him all the time, Joe "when I grow up, I want to be just like you." He would give me his laugh and smile. I asked him his secret and he said "live a good life".
He was always loved at Tri-Town and he will always be missed.
All I can say "WHAT A GUY!" God Bless RIP my friend.
Your friends at Tri-Town.
