May 9, 1960 – June 7, 2021
In Loving Memory of George Bouchard ~
t is with great sadness we announce the passing of George Roger Joseph Bouchard at the age of 61 on June 7, 2021.
George was born on May 9, 1960 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Simone Therrien and Wilfred Bouchard. He attended school in Laurier, Manitoba. Then moved to the Okanagan, to work with his brother Andre at the age of 18.
He bought a logging truck and formed G.Bouchard Trucking Ltd. At 24, he moved to Mackenzie, BC where he hauled logs for about 11 years. Then moved to Williams Lake, BC where he bought a home and resided with brother Albert. He started JB Holdings Ltd. which was a wood waste grinding business.
His love for animals was a strong attribute. He owned horses, dogs and a cat. He liked fishing and golfing with his brothers and friends. His smile was infectious and he is loving remembered for that.
He was quiet but a very kind and caring person. He was mom’s precious baby boy, loved by all especially his brothers and sisters. He was particularly close to his sister Carol. He held a special place in the heart of all his nieces and nephew. He is missed, we are sad, but he is in a better place.
He is survived by his mother Simone Bouchard who is 97 years old, siblings – Lilliane (Christian and Mona), Andre/Darlene (Gerald, Monique, Amber and Del), Lorraine (Candice, Sean and Cameron), Albert, Irene/Frank (David, Laurie, Brian and Kevin), Leonie/Devin (Nicole, Melanie, Kerry), Diane and Carol/Ross (John and Lisa).
George was predeceased by his father Wilfred Bouchard, his twin Joe Bouchard (at birth), his brother-in-law Neil McDonald and nephews Jason and Rob.
George will be buried with his twin Joe, in Laurier, MB near the family farm where he grew up.
Memorial Donation Suggestion Canadian Cancer Society.
The rest of the family would like to thank Carol, Albert and Andre for being there for George as loved ones, caregivers, and advocates to the end.
