Lawrence Boutilier
Little Pond / Point Edward

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Lawrence Boutilier in his 97th year, on Saturday, February 02, 2019 at Harbourstone Enhanced Care.
Lawrence was born in Little Pond on August 25th, 1921 to the late Theresa (MacNeil) and Bert Boutilier.
Lawrence hung his Stetson in Point Edward after marrying the love of his life, Kaye. He was a devoted family man who was always up for a game of Tarabish. When you saw Lawrence about, he was always smartly dressed and had a twinkle in his eye; you knew he was about to say something that would bring a smile to anyone’s face. Constantly busy, but never in a rush, you would often see him in his straw hat, tinkering around the yard or garage working on various projects. He was a dedicated member of the Holy Rosary Parish in Westmount. Lawrence was a retired employee of the Sydney Steel plant.
He is survived by his daughter Valerie (Myles) Ross, North Sydney, son, Bruce, Point Edward, sister, Agnes Currie, and her son Bert, who had a special relationship with Lawrence.
He is also survived by his much loved grandchildren, Jeremy (Tracy), Dartmouth; Matthew (Melissa), Quebec; and Catherine (Luc), Grand Bay-Westfield.
He will be missed dearly by his great-grandkids Spencer, Kate, Lucy, Lia, Lena and Nora; who always brought a smile to his face. He was predeceased by his siblings Sidney, John, Cassie, Stanley, Hector, and Garfield.
The family would like to thank the caring staff of Lavatte Lane for looking after “Larry”.
Cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass to celebrate Lawrence’s life will be held Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 at 10 am in Holy Family Church, Sydney Mines, with Fr. James Oliver officiating. Reception to follow in the parish hall. Burial will take place in St. Joseph Cemetery, Bras d’Or, at a later date. Donations in Lawrence's memory may be made to a charity of one's choice.
Words of comfort may be forwarded to his family at
