In loving memory of Allain Boudreau, 67, of Grand-Barachois, who peacefully passed away on Wednesday, January 24, 2024. Allain was the son of Laurida (Leblanc) Boudreau and the late Ola Boudreau also of Grand-Barachois. 

Allain was a highly esteemed member of his community and a dedicated entrepreneur.  He spent over 40 years in the construction industry, co-owning a successful contracting company with his brother and managing his own Al's Marine store. Though a businessman and a carpenter by trade, his true passion was fishing. He was at his happiest behind the wheel of his boat sailing the seas. His commitment to the Harbor Authority of Robichaud and his tireless efforts in wharf restoration reflected his love for the community. 

Beyond his professional achievements, Allain's work ethic, jovial spirit, and generous nature made him a beacon of inspiration. Known for his quick wit and playful teasing, he shared laughter and knowledge with all who crossed his path.  People would say he was the most genuine and authentic person you could ever meet. 

Family always held the utmost importance for Allain. His beloved wife, Joanne, and their children and grandchildren were his cherished treasures. Together, they explored the world, enjoyed family trips, and embraced life's adventures. Allain's love for his soul mate and his infectious "joie de vivre" will forever echo in the hearts of friends and family. 

Allain was not only a man of business. He loved music, listening to his favorite oldies and playing guitar to relax but also to have a good time with friends. Additionally, he embraced the thrill of skiing, making annual trips to some of North America's most spectacular slopes and beyond. These passions added vibrant layers to his multifaceted life. 

Allain is survived by his devoted wife, Joanne; daughters: Dale Lamberton (Jeff) and Amy Smith (Kevin); son, Brian Boudreau (Tracie); six brothers: Robert (Majella) of Shediac and Omer all of Shediac, Clarence (Delcia) of Grand-Barachois, Hervé (Patsy) and Eugène (Christal) all of Calgary and Henri (Liane) of Ottawa; one brother in-law, Edouard Vautour of Dieppe; one sister in-law, Émerise; a son in-law, Tomiko Smith; five grandchildren: Chelsea, Isaiah, Alexis, Joaquin and Ellie; a godson, Jason Cormier, as well as many nieces and nephews. 

He was predeceased by his father, Ola Boudreau; a sister, Denise Vautour; a brother, Jacques Boudreau; a nephew, Mathieu Vautour.

The family expresses gratitude to the staff at the Extra-Mural Program, as well as the numerous caring nurses and doctors who played a vital role in Allain's care over the last 15 years. His legacy lives on in the hearts of those he touched, and he will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 396 Main Street, Shediac on Monday, January 29th from where a chapel service will be held at 4 pm. Visiting hours are from 1:45 pm to 3:45 pm. Interment will be at Frenette Columbarium, Shediac. 

In memory of Allain, a donation to the Fondation CHU Dumont Foundation would be appreciated. 

Cremation and funeral arrangements are under the direction of Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, Shediac (506 532-3297).
