David Alan Boucher “Pepere”, 67, peacefully entered God’s Kingdom in the early morning hours of Sunday, July 22, 2018 at his childhood home, after a 19 month battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born in Biddeford, March 14, 1951 to Eli and Irene (King) Boucher.
Having an impeccable work record, he was employed by Norman Ruck Excavation for 17 years; he retired in March after 22 years with Dayton Sand and Gravel Co.
In his mind, David would develop a blueprint idea and proceed to build it with his hands. He had a passion for hunting, fishing, boats (building two in his lifetime) and any car made before 1990.
David was a humble and giving person. Called “Bo Bo” by longtime friends, he was known to give you the shirt off his back. He was a charter member of the Arundel Eagles, member of the York County Veterans Alliance, and a member of Le Voltigeur Club.
He was predeceased by his parents and his first wife Denise Gobeil Boucher. He is survived by his wife, Diane Ducharme Boucher, daughter and son-in-law Sarah and Terry Romero and his precious granddaughter, Lily.
The Boucher family would like to express love, thanks, appreciation and support to his extended family and many friends.
To Dr. Ebrahim of New England Cancer Center and his staff and to the nurses and staff of VNA home health hospice, thank you for your love, support and constant encouragement. . . . As Big Dave Boucher always said: “GOD BLESS”.
