Gerard E Boudreau

1954 – 2017

We are sad to announce the passing of Gerard

Etienne Boudreau on June 18, 2017 in Phoenix, AZ

after a courageous battle with cancer; his family was

by his side.

Gerard was born on December 26, 1954 in

Cheticamp, Nova Scotia, and lived his young life in

Victoria Mines and New Waterford, Nova Scotia. As

an avid sports fan, he loved hockey, NFL football,

baseball and golf. He played minor league hockey

in Cape Breton then moved to Kimberley to play

Junior B with the Kimberley Knights; he was a

rugged d-man who liked to rough it up. After several

years in Vancouver, Bellingham and Seattle, he met

his soulmate and love of his life, Teri. They were

married in Waikoloa, Hawaii after having moved to

Phoenix, AZ. A mutual passion, they appreciated

music; in the early 90’s Gerard had learned to play

the mandolin and Teri started learning to play the

banjo. Together, they loved bluegrass and country

music; they would travel in their motorhome

enjoying music festivals and camping. Gerard spent

his last years in Phoenix with his wife enjoying the

beautiful sun and bountiful golf.

Gerard is predeceased by his parents, Arthur and

Genevieve Boudreau and his brothers Blaise and

Cyril Boudreau. Gerard leaves to mourn his wife

Teri Boudreau, his step son David Erik Miller and

step daughter Nicole Marie Miller, his brothers

Arthur ( Joanne), Jim (Tara), Wilfred (Vera), Basil,

Teles (Delayne) and Paul Boudreau, sister Lorett e

(Charlie) Campbell and numerous cousins, nieces

and nephews.

Family service will be scheduled for a later date.
