Glenn C. Boutchie, 61

ESSEX — Glenn C. Boutchie, son of the late Maynard and Muriel Boutchie, born September 15, 1951, entered into rest December 5, 2012. Glenn was married to his high school sweetheart, Ginny (Stevens) Boutchie for 43 years, enjoying a lifetime of adventures with his best friend. Glenn’s sons, Glenn Jr. and Daniel, were his pride and joy. His joy continued when his son Glenn married his best friend Sharon, and his son Dan married his best friend Jennifer. When he thought life wouldn’t get any better, his granddaughters came along, Julia, Jessica and Riley Anne. Whether building snow hills in the backyard with Julia and Jessica, sledding at the town hall in Essex, flying kites at the beach or his Friday lunch dates with Riley Anne, Glenn treasured these moments. In addition to his wife, sons and daughters-in-law and granddaughters, Glenn is survived by his brother, Gary, his Uncle Dana and Aunt Barb Carter, Uncle Dick Carter and his wife Pat, and his Aunt Kathleen Ricci, as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, and numerous cherished friends.

Glenn spent many years coaching his sons’ Little League baseball teams, passing on his love of baseball. Glenn’s lifelong involvement included the Town of Essex Fire Department for over 40 years, Essex Civil Defense for 14 years and the Essex Housing Authority for the past five years. No matter where Glenn was employed over the years, he loved his job at Beverly Hospital the most.

ARRANGEMENTS: A celebration of Glenn’s life will be held Monday, December 10, 2012, at 6 PM at St. John’s the Baptist Church, 52 Main Street, Essex, to be followed by a reception at the Village Restaurant, directly across the street from the church.
