1936 – 2023
Putnam – Armand G. Boisvert, 87, of Sabin St., formerly of Woodstock, died Thursday morning, February 23, 2023, at Day Kimball Hospital surrounded by his loving family.
Born in St. Hermenegilde, Quebec, Canada, he was the son of the late Emile and Parmelia (Brodeur) Boisvert. On February 24, 1962, in Cap-de-LeMadeleine, Canada he was united in marriage to Muriel (Maurice) Boisvert.
Always a hard worker, a trait likely learned growing up on a farm and logging in his early years, Armand dedicated his professional life to the construction industry. He started with Ray Allard & Son, and eventually retired as the Head of Safety for C.R. Klewin Construction Company, where he proudly served as a key part of the team who built the first phases of Foxwoods Casino. In addition to his rigorous full-time work, over the years he took on side work, sometimes with the help of his children in the early years, and later helping them with their homes and businesses.
He was a former member of the Knights of Columbus in New Hampshire, as well as the Canadian National Guard. Armand taught himself English and read the newspaper each day. He could be seen on his regular walks, especially in recent years with his dog, a Papillion named Fairway. Armand enjoyed keeping his property in pristine condition but, above all he cherished the quality time he had with his grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He spent countless hours giving rides, attending sporting and school events and supporting his family locally, while remaining close to his family in Canada.
Armand is survived by his wife of 61 years, Muriel (Maurice) Boisvert; his children, Brigitte Jurczyk and her husband, Craig of Pomfret, Marc Boisvert of Danielson, Johanne Bates and her husband Brian of Waterford, Roger Boisvert and his wife Paula of Thompson, Mariel Boisvert of Worcester, MA and Jean-Louis “John” Boisvert and his wife Jaime of Woodstock; his siblings, Rene Boisvert of Quaticook, Quebec, Canada, and Yvon Boisvert of St. Hermengilde, Quebec, Canada; twenty-five grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his granddaughter, Kasia Jurczyk, and siblings: Edgar Boisvert, Albert Boisvert, Felix Boisvert, Réal Boisvert, Adrian Boisvert, André Boisvert, Denise Boisvert, Claire Audet, and Yvonne Peloquin.

Mrs Boisvert and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed seeing and talking to Armand when we would see them walking around Sabin’s Landing. Armand was always good for a small chat and a smile. Everyday we would see them walking and enjoying the fresh air. Rest in peace our friend Armand.
