Peter Boisvert - age 46, died of a heart attack on September 17, 2012. He was born September 4, 1966, the son of Ralph and Claudia Boisvert. Peter was raised in Fryeburg, Maine, and graduated from Fryeburg Academy. He attended Bard College and the University of Southern Maine. He was employed by his father’s business, Mold Flair Corporation, serving as President of the company for a number of years. Most recently, he lived in Norridgewock.
Peter loved nature and animals. He was the kind of person who left food out for stray cats, and doted on his own dog, Sophia. Although he had many struggles in life, including poor health, he kept a wry sense of humor. He was a very spiritual person in his own way, and often talked about different times that he experienced God’s work in his life. Even when very discouraged, he often managed to think about the larger meaning of daily events. He tried to find ways to reach out to other people, and had a very compassionate nature. An avid reader, he loved researching new topics, talking about philosophy, and learning new ideas. He was always up-to-date on current events, and enjoyed sharing his opinions about what was going on in the world.
Peter is survived by his father, the Rev. Ralph Boisvert; his daughter, Janelle Whisker, of Palm Coast, Florida; his brother and sister-in-law, Mark and Susan Boisvert, of Piano Texas; his sister, Elizabeth Boisvert, of Portland; and his nieces, Claudia and Julia Boisvert, also of PIano, Texas. He was predeceased by his mother, Claudia Boisvert.
There will be no visiting hours. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10 AM Monday Sept. 24th at St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church, Western Avenue, Augusta. A private burial service will be held in Fryeburg at a later date.
