The world lost a great man in the passing of Lloyd Thomas Boutilier of East Hampton, CT formally of Manchester, CT on June 14, 2021. Lloyd was born in Houlton, ME on August 2, 1947 and was the husband, best friend and soulmate of Laura Robb Boutilier. He also was the proud father to Lindsey (wife Amy) and Leland (wife Melissa) who will carry on his legacy. His best role was that of “Bubba” to his five grandchildren Stella, Elle, Landen, Maxton and Boden and special four-legged friend Sunny. Lloyd was pre-deceased by his parents Lloyd and Mary Boutilier, sister MaryAnn and brother Brion. He is survived by a special sister Denise Perri, sister Stephanie Letendre and brother Miles Boutilier and numerous other close family members and friends.
Lloyd lived life to the fullest enjoying his boat on Lake Pocotopaug in his later years or golfing playing softball, coaching or umpiring in his younger years. Lloyd was a 1965 graduate of East Catholic High School and served in the Connecticut National Guard. He owned numerous restaurants in the Manchester area most notably Sunny Side Up and Gus’s. Lloyd was passionate about family and friends, had a great wit and a sometimes sarcastic sense of humor and was fortunate to call many his friend. He took great pride in helping others whether family, friend or a stranger. Lloyd and Laura celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2019 having grown up together since their early teens.
In spite of cardiac issues and dementia Lloyd maintain his wit and desire to “do something” through his decline. Many friends and family members own a “pallet project” made by Bubba. Lloyd will be greatly missed by all who knew him for his generosity, giving spirit and love and dedication to family. He was one of a kind who now joins his family in heaven and leaves behind a hole in the hearts of many. A mass and Celebration of Life will be held on August 2 at 10:30 AM in Saint John Fisher Church 30 Jones Hollow Rd Marlborough, CT. Tribute donations may be made to Alzheimer’s Association at Alz.org. The Spencer funeral home in East Hampton is in charge of arrangements.
