May 3, 1953 – February 4, 2020
In Loving Memory of Brian Boutilier born May 3, 1953 in Cape Britain, Nova Scotia.
Passed away February 4, 2020, in 100 Mile House BC, he was 66 years young.
Survived by his loving wife Dilly of 48 years and his 2 sons, Michael (Lish) and Christopher (Deserai). Grandchildren Jake, Oscar, Freddie and Tanner and one sister.
Brian was born and raised in a small town known as Little Pond and at the age of 16 he moved to The Great Lakes. When Brian was 18, he ventured to Vancouver, BC and worked for LaFarge for 36 years on tugboats as a deck hand/ cook and transported goods as far as Seattle and Alaska.
In 1976, when Brian turned 19, he met Dilly in Vancouver, BC and they bought their first home in Mission, BC. Anyone who knew Brian wouldn’t be surprised that he doubled their home in size. After the boys were born in 1980, he moved his family to 100 Mile House, BC on 100 acres of raw land. Brian built the family farm while continuing to work for LaFarge. Brain cultivated many sections of the farm, moving earth for the house, shop, barn, hay sheds and many other outbuildings. Anyone who has been to the Boutilier Farm is astounded by all the structures that were made right from his bare hands out of love, hard work and determination. All the grandchildren will have memories of their grandfathers windmill aeriated pond that kept them cool in the summer and used for skating in the winter.
Brian’s life was dedicated to the love of his life Dilly, his 2 sons and his grandchildren.
Services held at 10 am on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at St Jude’s Catholic Church on Horse Lake Road in 100 Mile House and graveside service, followed by a gathering at the Boutilier Farm.
