Adrien Joseph Bouvier

Adrien Joseph Bouvier of Okanagan Falls passed away on Friday January 9, 2015 following a lengthy courageous battle with cancer at the age of 83.

Adrien was born on the farm near Mayronne, Sask on March 1, 1931 to parents Pierre & Adrienne (nee Facette) Bouvier. He left home at 15 and worked various jobs in farming and the oil fields and eventually in construction which led him into owning and operating his own businesses for the duration of his working years.

Upon his retirement, he travelled extensively where he was able to enjoy his 5th wheel. Adrien was a generous and good hearted man who always had a story or a joke to share.

He thoroughly enjoyed talking on his ham radio, working with wood, building, and carving sculptures. Over the years he was a member of North Okanagan Ham Radio Club, he sponsored fighters in a boxing club, was a member of a boating club and the Knights of Columbus.

He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Adrienne; brothers Raymond, Germain, Arthur Joseph and a still born brother; sisters Helen, Marie, Lillian and Marguerite; son Norman Bouvier; wife Mary; and granddaughter Trisha Paproski.

Adrienne leaves to mourn his passing, and cherished fond memories by his loving family including daughters Claudette (Frank), Charmaine (Ken), Paulette (Tim), Jacqueline (George) and Monique (Brian); sister Cecile, brothers Armand, Pierre, Marcel, George, Roland, Andre and Colin; thirteen grandchildren; five great-grandchildren as well as many extended family and all his friends who were to consider themselves honourary pallbearers.

A memorial mass was celebrated by Fr. Neil Lustado at 1:00 P.M. Thursday January 15, 2015 at Christ the King Catholic Church followed by a reception in the church.

Urn interment and committal followed at the Okanagan Falls Cemetery.
