DRACUT - Richard J. Bolduc, 66, a resident of Dracut, died Tuesday, May 10, 2022. He was the beloved husband of Diane (Richard) Bolduc, with whom he was married to for 45 years.
He was born in St. Victor de Beauce, P.Q., Canada on June 12, 1955 and was a son of Mary Alice (Lessard) Bolduc of Dracut and the late Hilaire Bolduc. He received his education in Dracut and found his way into the family plumbing and heating business, to follow in his Father's footsteps. Richard was devoted to the plumbing profession and enjoyed working alongside his Dad and brothers doing what they loved to do.
Richard was always ready to help with any home improvement project, so much so, that your project would immediately become his project whether you liked it or not. His infamous line always started with "It's none of my business but…" followed by him telling you exactly how to do it. Richard was all business when it came to his profession or the many side projects he took on but the one thing he never missed was his daily 10AM coffee break, whether on the job site or at the local coffee shop with his family.
When Richard wasn't working, in his younger days, he loved being around the campfire with a good cup of joe and a smoke or riding his motorcycle with his wife, sons and friends. As he grew older he began to love relaxing in his recliner with a favorite show, tinkering in a garage with his sons or his absolute favorite times, which were family meals around the dinner table and the cherished memories that came with it.
His greatest joy however, were his grandkids, who always came first and who they could always count on to give in when they wanted something. When Mémère said no, Pépère would always say yes. He couldn't resist the smiling faces and joy it brought his grandchildren. A treasured memory collectively shared is the many nicknames Richard had for his family; toots, bub, buddy, birdie and pumpkin were common and frequently heard when referring to his loved ones.
In addition to his wife, Diane, Richard is survived and will be deeply missed by his two sons, Jason Bolduc and his wife Linda of Dracut and Robert Bolduc and his wife Kristin of Dracut; his four grandchildren, Cole, Emma, Alissandra and Julian; his four brothers, Gerard Bolduc and his wife Cathleen of Nashua, NH, Denis Bolduc and his wife Louise of Hooksett, NH, Michael Bolduc and his wife Susan of Dracut and Steven Bolduc and his wife Kristeen of Pepperell, MA; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Relatives and friends are invited to Richard's Graveside Service on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at 10 AM at St. Joseph Cemetery, 96 Riverneck Road, Chelmsford. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Richard's memory to the Cancer Center at Lowell General Hospital, 295 Varnum Avenue, Lowell, MA 01854.
