Obituary for Edward Logan Bouffard Sr.


WATERTOWN – Edward Logan Bouffard Sr., age 83 of Oakville, passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side at Saint Mary’s Hospital on Sunday, June 14th 2020.

Edward was born on September 25th 1936 in New York, New York, the son of the late Edward J. Bouffard and Elisabeth (Sawonchak) Bouffard. In 1945, his father lost his life in Germany serving the U.S. Army during World War II. Edward was raised in Waterbury CT and graduated from Crosby High School. He entered the U.S. Air Force in June of 1955. While in the Air Force he worked as an air traffic controller. After being honorably discharged, Edward began his career with CT Light & Power (Eversource), retiring after 35 years of faithful service. Edward was a die-hard Boston Red Sox fan. He enjoyed bowling at the Elks Club, watching Jeopardy and gardening but his greatest joy was being around his family. He will be sadly missed by all who were blessed to know and love him.

Left to honor Edward’s legacy and cherish his love and memory are his daughters; Janet Fisher and her husband Jeffrey, and Cheryl Rykowski, his son, Edward Bouffard Jr. and his wife, Judith. Edward was blessed with five grandchildren, Nicholas Fisher, Karli Fisher, Stephen Bouffard, Jenna Rykowski and Thomas Rykowski.
