James T.'s Story
James T. Boudreau, just 9 days shy of his 65th birthday, died peacefully at his home in Seabrook, N.H., early Thursday morning, September 22, 2016, with his loving wife by his side.
Born in Haverhill, October 1, 1951, he was one of two sons of the late Francis and Pauline (Cartier) Boudreau and was a graduate of Newburyport High School, Class of 1970.
In addition to his beloved wife of 31 years, Donna (Ofria) Boudreau of Seabrook, he is also survived by his brother, Paul Boudreau and wife, Michelle of San Francisco, as well a beloved niece, nephew, three great nieces and a great nephew. David and Molly Snow of Haverhill, adopted Jim and Donna to be the grandparents of Addison and Jackson Snow. All of the family and extended family brought much joy to his life, as well as his many dearly beloved friends. He loved his canine companion Jasper, who bought him much comfort and joy.
Jim lived on Plum Island over 50 years and it meant a great deal to him. He always said there was no better place to be a boy than on Plum Island. He was a passionate boater for many years and loved being on the ocean regardless of the weather. His other hobby was woodworking and creating wonderful objects of art. He fought many health battles, survived a liver transplant and lost his battle with stomach cancer. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
