Gordon Clyde Boutilier 1943 ~ 2014

Our family is very sad to share that earlier this week my husband's father passed away.


Gordon Clyde Boutilier
August 10, 1943 ~ June 9, 2014

"Where does the time go, why can't it leave slow, why does it fly by so fast, why can't the good times last and last, why does it have to end, before we know it the times gone again, whichever way the wind blows, I guess that's where the time goes" 
- RyLee Madison 

Born in Halifax, NS, August 10, 1943, Gordon had a creative spirit and enjoyed painting and building many projects over the years. A skilled carpenter, he built a number of homes and residential developments within the Halifax area and would spend his days off working on his cabin in Chester Basin. He enjoyed riding motorcycles with his best friend Butch and searching the flea markets for hidden treasures with Ida. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren and would boast about their achievements to whoever would listen. He could fix anything and was always happy to lend a hand to a friend in need and enjoyed chatting with many friends in his neighbourhood. 
He is survived by his loving wife of 39 years Ida, four children Garnet (Theresa), Steven, RyLee (Clay) and Gordon (Lisa), ten grandchildren, younger brother Glenn (Holly), sister-in-law Imelda, father-in-law Raymond, brothers-in-law Raymond, Ronnie (Mary Anne), Herbie and many nieces and nephews. Gordon was preceded by his parents Leah and Clyde, brother Gary, and mother in law Jean Pearson. The family would like to sincerely thank the nurses and doctors who attended to Gordon during his illness for their exceptional care and support in his final days. He will be dearly missed by many.
The family will be celebrating Gordon’s life at a memorial gathering on Sunday, June 15 from 6-8pm at the Weir Field Building - 2476 #1 Windsor Hwy, Middle Sackville. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia or a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be sent by visiting www.coleharbourfuneral.com
