Richard Boudrot

Richard A.J. Boudrot, 80, died at his longtime home in Falmouth on July 5, following a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was the son of Edward N. and Mary A. (Kenney) Boudrot, and was raised in Cambridge.

Mr. Boudrot was trained as an engineer and worked more than 28 years at Polaroid Corporation. He also served in the US Army.

After his career at Polaroid, he kept busy in retirement with work at Ocean Spray and Cape Cod Potato Chips and, in Falmouth, at Treetops condominiums on Oyster Pond, where he served as property manager.

When he was not working, Mr. Boudrot was an avid reader and played tennis, bocce and billiards; he was also a Ping-Pong champion. He had traveled across much of the US, and had visited the Caribbean, Canada, Europe, South Africa and Southeast Asia.

His engineering skills and his expansive tool collection enabled him to help his extended family with many renovation projects.

He leaves his wife, Paulette (Letendre) Johnson Boudrot; four daughters, Suzanne Shea of Stuart, Florida, Michelle McCarthy of Beverly, and Patricia Boudrot and Jacqueline Boudrot, both of Danvers; two sisters, Jacqueline Buckley and Annette Carroll; and nine grandchildren.

He was predeceased by two wives, Patricia K. (Dempsey) Boudrot and Joan Ojala Boudrot; two sisters, Mary Murphy and Jean Cleary; and two brothers, Edward Boudrot and Stephen Boudrot.

Services will be private.

A celebration of the life of Mr. Boudrot is planned for the fall.
