Joseph G. Boisvert, 75, passed away at home by his loving family on Thursday, April 29, 2021. Born in Pawtucket, he was the son of the late Leona (Mathis) Boisvert. He was the beloved husband of Sandra (Mansuetti) Boisvert. He was the father of Joseph R. Boisvert and his wife Kelly, Sherri Boisvert and her wife Carla Mesiti. Brother of Richard Boisvert and wife Shirley and the late Ann Kinnecome. He was the grandfather of Dylan Pellegrino, Caitlyn, Joey, Reagan and Axel Boisvert and Sydney and Brayden Amaral and great-grandfather of Mila, Montana and Ava. He also leaves several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his beloved companion “Niki”.

Joe served in Vietnam as a Military Police training service dogs. Sadly, at the end of his service connection he had to leave his most precious dog Yogi. Joe spent most of his life talking about Yogi. During our life together, we were never without a dog.

He was a very competitive and loved playing volley ball, racquet ball and softball with Apponaugs men’s leagues. Joe also coached Apponaugs girls’ softball for 25 years. During those years he had taken the girls to several national tournaments. Joe also had a great love for boating and Antique Cars. He was a machinist at Sheldahl ,Davol and Beard and a graduate of Johnson and Whales College.

Joe was a handy man who always helped everyone including neighbors. He was a major helper in the building of Apponaug Girls softball field back in the late 1980’s. A 70 hour week was his base, as a machinist, before he helped every person, everywhere. He would drive his tractor, do his lawn and then proceed to do the lawn of every person that needed it in the neighborhood. He knew how to fix anything. Cars, washers, dryers, lawnmowers, boats and machines of any type. He was at the same time the nicest man you’d ever know.

Joe was my best friend, my Love and soul mate. He was my rock and strength. I will carry him in my heart until we meet again.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday from 9:30 to 10:30 A.M in the Pontarelli-Marino Home, 971 Branch Avenue, Providence, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 A.M. in Saint Ann’s Church, 280 Hawkins Street, Providence.

Sandy and Family. We are so sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. We have so many wonderful, heartwarming memories of AGS over the years. Joe always had his own way of making the games fun for the girls and the parents. Even though many years have passed, Joe always had a sweet spot in my heart. Thank you Joe for all of those years. God bless.

To my love, best friend and soul mate. We have been together for 50 years. My life will never be the same. I will miss your smiling face and our trips to your favorite breakfast and dinner restaurants. We had a great marriage and it will be very difficult facing each day without you.
Seeing the pain you were in broke my heart each and every day. You are now pain free and with all your friends and family.
You are now pain free with all the angels and have a piece of my heart. I will hold you close and remember the life we shared.
Until we meet again. I love you and RIP.
