February 23, 1943
January 20, 2018

It is with profound sadness that the family of Roger Bouthillier, Sr. age 74 of Huntingdon announces his passing on Saturday, January 20, 2018.  Born in Athelstan, he was the son of the late Oswald and Eugenie (Roy) Bouthillier.  Roger was the loving husband to his wife, Hope Wattie, for 53 years, and father to Roger, Jr. (Gerald), Steven (Brigitte), Fay (Marquis) and Gay (Dave). Roger was a grandfather to Luc, Samuel, Jessica (John), Amanda (Gabriel), Christopher (Katherine), Sam, Liam and Matthew and great grandfather to Lori-Jade.  Roger is also survived by several nieces and nephews.  Roger was passionate about his family, teaching and volunteerism and in his leisure time he enjoyed traveling with his wife and children, bowling and working in his flower gardens and on his lawn.  Roger is already sorely missed and memories of him will be forever treasured.  Visitations will be Friday January 26, 2018 from 9 to 11 am.  Burial at Rodrigue  Montpetit et Fils Columbarium.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Rodrigue Montpetit & Fils Funeral Home,170, rue Châteauguay, 450-264-5331.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Roger’s memory may be made to Cedars Cancer Foundation (, Cedars CanSupport),The Ladies' Auxiliary of the Huntingdon County Hospital or the Centre de Formation de Huntingdon/Huntingdon Learning Centre.
C'est avec grande tristesse que la famille de Roger Bouthillier Sr. agé de 74 ans de Huntingdon, annonce  son décès  survenu le samedi 20 janvier 2018.  Il est né à Athlestan de feu Oswald et de feu Eugenie (Roy) Bouthillier.  Roger était l'époux adoré  de Hope Wattie pour les 53 dernières années. Tendre père de Roger Jr. (Gerald), Steven (Brigitte), Fay (Marquis) et Gay (Dave).  Grand-papa de Luc, Samuel, Jessica (John), Amanda (Gabriel), Christopher (Katherine), Sam, Liam et Matthew ainsi qu'arrière-grand-père de Lori-Jade.  Il laisse également dans le deuil plusieurs neveux et nièces.  Roger était un passionné de sa famille, de son travail d'enseignant, de ses actions de bénévolat, des voyages vécus avec son épouse et ses enfants, du jeu de quilles, et du travail fait à ses jardins de  fleurs et de son terrain.  Il nous manque déjà et nos souvenirs de Roger seront  à jamais conservés.  Les visites auront lieu le vendredi 26 janvier de 9 à 11 heures au salon funéraire Rodrigue Montpetit & Fils, 170 rue Châteauguay, Huntingdon.  450-264-5331. Inhumation au Columbarium Rodrigue Montpetit & Fils.  Des dons, à la mémoire de Roger Bouthillier, à la Fondation du cancer des Cèdres (, Cedars CanSupport),  aux Dames auxiliaires du Centre hospitalier de Huntingdon ou au Cendre de Formation de Huntingdon seraient grandement appréciés.
