Serge Boudreault Obituary

The soul of Serge Henri Boudreault, 84, has left this life to explore the great mystery of the place Serge always referred to as “Heaven.”

Serge was born in Mistassini, Canada a son of the late Rene H. and Marie-Cora (Reny) Boudreault.  Serge leaves behind his wife, Claire (Bissonnette-Wright) Boudreault. He was predeceased by his first wife Catherine (O’Donahue) Boudreault. He also leaves two sons, Rene Henri Boudreault with wife Nadine, and Sean Thomas Boudreault with wife Melissa, step-children Clayton Wright with wife Amanda, Ellen Puccetti with husband Steven, Jennifer Roberts with husband David, and Elizabeth Dulude with husband Paul, his grandchildren Tara, Tristan and Liam as well as many step-grandchildren. Serge also leaves his sister Laura Courville with husband Roger. He was predeceased by siblings, Juien Boudreault, Dorothee Boudreault, Carmen Bonneau, and Lucille St. Onge.

Serge’s hockey career began in Shawinigan-Sud, Canada when the Montreal Canadiens drafted him at age 17 into their Jr. Canadien league.   At 19, The NY Rovers referred to Serge as “A Teen-age Terror “on the ice.   The following year brought Serge to Rhode Island’s famous auditorium where he played with the Rhode Island Reds for seven years ending his professional career as team captain with the Columbus Checkers and scoring the most points in that league.  Serge started and was involved in many training camps for aspiring players.

In the hockey arena, Serge built special relationships while coaching Cumberland High School with both players and parents.  He enjoyed coaching several Bantam and Midget teams as well.   He was particularly pleased with his 1984 Edgewood team who won the National Midget Championship Tournament playing in St. Louis Arena, during which time, son Sean scored a “Hat Trick” in the final game.  He also scouted for Montreal and the Philadelphia Flyers.

Serge started his second career working with RIDOT in the drafting department.  Serge ended his 33 year career as a Safety Engineer.

The family extends their profound appreciation to Hope Health’s tirelessly devoted and professional staff and to Jose Aldanna for their generous help in the care of Serge through his illness.
