Antonio Joseph Armand Boutin
1925 - 2017

Antonio was born on September 19, 1925 to O'Neil Boutin and Marie Gervais. He and his brothers and sisters grew up on a farm in the Cantal, Sask. district.

Antonio married Thérèse Poirier on November 15, 1955. Together, they farmed and cared for their children. Mom and Dad recognized God's grace through 62 years of marriage. They lived in the Cantal area for 20 years, until moving to Estevan, Sask. in 1975. In 2004, they chose to return to their roots, building a new home in Redvers, Sask.

Guiding Antonio's strong community involvement in each of the towns in which he made his home, was his deep belief in the Catholic Church, the strength of family, the importance of education and the value of friendship. He was especially devoted to St. Raphael, St. John the Baptist and Our Lady of Fatima Parishes and was a lifelong member of the Knights of Columbus.

Antonio saw the face of God in everyone he met and lived each day gently and kindly. His grace, patience and humour opened the hearts of those of us lucky enough to have known him.

Antonio passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2017 at the Redvers Health Centre, at the age of 91 years.

He will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Thérèse and their children, Marc, Alice, Pierre, Lily, Charly, Bruno, Larry and all their families. He leaves fond memories for his remaining siblings and their families.

Waiting to greet their dad in Heaven were his son Roy and daughter Suzette, his parents and all his friends and family who have gone before him.

The Funeral Mass was celebrated on Friday, January 13, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at St. Raphael R.C. Church, Cantal, with Rev. Wilfred Calinawan and Rev. Melchor Samonte presiding. Interment followed at the parish cemetery, after which a luncheon was held at the Alida Memorial Hall, Alida, Sask.

Those wishing to make donations in Antonio's memory may do so directly to the Redvers & Community Health Foundation Inc., Box 766, Redvers, Sask., S0C 2H0.

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Hall Funeral Services, Redvers.
