OBITUARY: Bud Boucher, 73

Henry (Bud) Boucher, age 73, of Wilton, died suddenly and peacefully Jan. 24, 2021, with his loving family by his side. Born in Waterbury, CT, on Sept. 1, 1947, he was the son of the late Henry and Mary Lawlor Boucher. He was the husband of Antonietta (Toni) Iannuzzi Boucher.

In addition to his wife, Bud is survived by his daughter Marie Boucher Berkley (Alan); two sons, Christopher Boucher (Courtney) and Jean-Paul Boucher (Donna); four brothers, Dennis (Diane), Paul (Denise), John (Theresa), and Scott (Dottie); a sister, Anita McCafferty; brother-in-law Guy Iannuzzi (Linda); and six grandchildren.

Bud proudly serviced as a captain in the US Air Force and later worked as an energy, finance, insurance and healthcare management consultant. After a long and distinguished career as a senior partner for some of the country’s top consulting firms, he headed a public company while also owning a small Wilton business. During this time, he worked tirelessly to promote and fundraise for Wilton’s civic organizations. He gave long hours to the American Legion Post 86 serving as an officer, was the Trackside Teen Center Board treasurer, Wilton Rotary founder and two-time President, and a 4th Degree Knights of Columbus District Officer. He was especially proud of starting the Rotary’s annual carnival to the delight of area children. But mostly he was a dedicated and supportive father, grandfather and husband who is deeply loved and cherished.

The Boucher family is grateful for the community’s outpouring of support and expression of sympathy during this difficult time.

The family will receive friends at a socially distanced and masked wake will be held Saturday, Jan. 30, from 9:30-11 a.m., followed by a limited-seating service and Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Church (229 Danbury Rd.). A mask is required for admission to church. Flowers can be sent to Our Lady of Fatima Church in care of Father Reginald Norman. Interment will be private.

The service will also be live-streamed on YouTube on Our Lady of Fatima’s website. There will also be a Celebration of Bud’s Life in the summer when it is safe to gather.
