Frank R. Bourgeois, 92, a longtime Maynard, MA resident, died on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at UMASS Medical Center, University Campus in Worcester. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 63 years, Jeannette E. (Cormier) in February of 2020.

Frank was born in Waltham, MA, son of the late James and Dora (Gillette) Bourgeois. He was raised in New Brunswick, Canada and spent a short time in Gardner, MA prior to settling in Maynard where he has spent the past 54 plus years. Frank was one of 18 children and always valued keeping in touch with his siblings. A faithful parishioner of St. Bridget’s Parish in Maynard, he enjoyed activities and events at the Maynard Senior Center along with his wife Jeannette. He was a member of the French Club in Gardner, member of the Maynard Elks and Maynard VFW. He was a proud Veteran serving during the Korean War until honorably discharged in 1952. He was employed by the former T.R.W. Company for many years as a warehouse clerk in Waltham and Burlington until retiring at the age of 60.

Frank will be fondly remembered as a kind and outgoing man. He was an avid fisherman and always looked forward to fishing at Walden Pond.

Deepest condolences to the family for your loss. We were brought up in Maynard until moving to New Brunswick, Canada, in 1975. My parents Irois (some called him Joe) & Corinne Melanson loved and were great friends with your parents. My mother even wore your mother’s wedding dress when they got married. I remember your parents well. My parents are both passed but when they were living & I brought them to Mass yearly & they always wanted to visit your parents....I remember visiting them last on/off Waltham street in their apt. where we shared chats, stories & laughs. They were beautiful people. It is never easy to loss a loved one as special as a parent. May all you forever cherish all your wonderful memories of him. I bet he was smiling as he met your mom up there in heaven. Sylvia Melanson - Cocagne, New Brunswick.

So sorry to hear of my special brother in law (Rita) and Godfather Frank's (Denise & Omer) passing. We had many laughs with him and his brother Arthur over the years. My children were also sad to hear of his passing, they were always happy to see him when he came to Canada. Love Rita, Denise, Omer and family

Frank was a friend and neighbor who was highly respected by all. We had a Saturday poker club that we all enjoyed and Frank never missed, I sincerely miss him and know he will rest in peace. I want to express my condolences to all of his family.
