BOUCHARD, Adrian, 94, PRESQUE ISLE, September 2015. In following Adrian’s wishes, there will be no viewing hours. Arrangements are under the care of Duncan-Graves Funeral Home, Presque Isle.
PRESQUE ISLE – Adrian Bouchard, born August 24, 1921, a native and life-long resident of Presque Isle, passed away in his 94th year after a long illness from the late 1990’s with COPD.
Adrian was a graduate of Presque Isle High School.
He served in the United States Army during World War II in the Mediterranean Theater Operation. He was a life member of VFW Post 2599, local Knights of Columbus Council 2524 and its 4th degree assembly “Bishop Daniel J. Feeney”. Adrian was a retired U. S. Civil Servant and was assigned to former Presque Isle Air Force Base and Loring Air Force Base located in Northern Aroostook County, Maine. In his retired years, he was employed in SAD 1 both as an instructor and custodian at Presque Isle High School (his most enjoyable years) and was a “Grandpa to many of the students” over the years.
He is survived by his wonderful and loving wife of 64 years, Lena (Cote’); four children, John, George and wife, Carrin, Patty and husband, Perley Jr., and Stephen; as well as five grandchildren, Nicole, Matthew, Stacy and Adam (husband), Tina and Bruce (husband), and Troy; four great-grandchildren, Emily, Megan, Madison and Kaitlyn; and many nieces and nephews of the family, all whom he relished and cherished to no end. He was the last surviving of the family of seven: father, George Sr., mother, Leona (Moreau); brothers, Louis, George Jr., and Alfred; and sister, Elizabeth.
We were blessed to have him in our lives. He made a wonderful and kind difference to us all – “well done true and faithful servant of God”. May God be with you until we meet again.
In following Adrian’s wishes, there will be no viewing hours. A private family graveside “Service of Committal” was held at the Presque Isle Catholic Cemetery on North Main Street, Friday, September 25, 2015 at 1 p.m. Those who wish may donate in his memory to the St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Presque Isle.
