Roger Wayne Boucher


Roger Wayne Boucher, 81, of Rehoboth, MA, passed away on Monday, November 18, 2019 at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI. He was the beloved husband of Nancy L. Morgan-Boucher, whom he was married on November 29, 1999.

Born on May 15, 1938 in New Bedford, MA, he was the son of the late Allen D. Boucher and the late Marion G. (MacPhail) Boucher.

A graduate of Norton High School, Class of 1956, he worked for more than thirty years as a Printer for Colonial Lithograph, Inc. in Attleboro, before retiring.

Roger honorably served our country as a Veteran of the United States Navy.

A resident of Rehoboth since 1995, he previously lived in Attleboro.

A lifelong member of Murray Unitarian Universalist Church in Attleboro, he was active with the Food Pantry and the Memorial Garden project. He enjoyed the outdoors and camping. Roger was a longtime member of the Boys Scouts. He became a writer in his later years and was a member of the Nomad Writers Group for ten years. He was also active with Rehoboth's "Poetry in the Village" with Nancy, and with the Rehoboth Blanding Library. Roger had a special place in his heart for his two cats: "Felix" and "Butterscotch".
