Vincent E. Bouthillier
Vincent E. Bouthillier, 86, passed away peacefully and went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at home surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Rita F. (Tessier) Bouthillier for 63 years. Born in Pawtucket, he was a son of the late Joseph & Marie (Chartier) Bouthillier.
