Normand G. Boucher, 77, of North Smithfield, passed away October 26, 2017, at Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island. He was the beloved husband of the late Lise T. (Simoneau) Boucher whom he wed September 4, 1961. Born in Magog, Quebec, Canada, he was the son of the late Laurent and Germaine (Thivierge) Boucher. Normand emigrated from Canada to Woonsocket in 1967, where he resided until 2008.
He owned Central Dry Wall Company of Woonsocket, retiring in 1994. He greatly enjoyed his athletic pursuits--including hockey, baseball, golf, and skiing. His past memberships included Local 94 Carpenter's Union, PGA Oldtimers Hockey, Rehoboth Country Club, Cercle Laurier, and Italian Workingmen's Club (IWC). Until her passing in 2007, Lise and Normand often spent time between Woonsocket and their treasured condo in North Miami Beach, Florida. "Happy Norm" will be remembered smiling by those who knew and loved him, and as a loving, generous, devoted man of integrity.
