Obituary for Donald Joseph Boulerice

So Burlington/St. Albans – Donald Joseph Boulerice, 56, a lifelong area resident, passed away Friday, October 14, 2011, at Fletcher Allen Health Care following many years of illness, with his family at his side. He was born in Colchester on February 6, 1955, the son of Pauline M. (Bergeron) Boulerice and the late Lionel G. Boulerice, who passed away on October 16, 2009. Donald graduated from Bellows Free Academy in 1973, and worked for UVM and IBM until the early 90’s when health issues forced him to retire. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, Council # 297 in St. Albans and of St. John Vianney Parish in So Burlington. Donald’s greatest enjoyments in life came from time spent with his grandchildren, riding his motorcycle, hunting, camping, trips to the casino, seeing friends, and his dogs. Donald was well known for his sense of humor and his wheeling and dealing abilities (inherited from his father) and for being the only one of the brothers with “Mr. Fix It” abilities. Survivors include: his mother, Pauline Boulerice of So Burlington; his daughter, Angela Phillip and her three children, Aaron & Amber Barbeau and Alexandria “Peanut” Desrochers all of Swanton; his siblings, Michael Boulerice and his wife, Sherry; Anita Boulerice Lavoie; Marcel Boulerice and his wife, Susan; and Robert Boulerice and his wife, Melissa, all of St. Albans. Donald is also survived by his nephews and nieces; Rob Montgomery, Brian Boulerice, Phil Montgomery, Heather and Jodi Young, John Lavoie, II, Katelyn Boulerice Essex, Kiley and Brett Boulerice and Nicole and Jacob Boulerice; his canine companion “Choco”, and his devoted former wife, Gail Boulerice of St. Albans. Donald’s daughter and siblings would like to thank Pauline (Mom) for her lifetime of devoted care and love during Donald’s long illnesses and treatments. The family would also like to extend special thanks to Elda Calcagni for the care and love she gave to Donald in more recent years. The family also wishes to thank the Fletcher Allen ICU staff for the excellent support and care that was given to Donald.
