Arthur Glen Bolduc

PITTSFIELD – Arthur Glen Bolduc was born in Skowhegan on March 21, 1959, to Eugene and Christine (Scott) Bolduc, and raised with his seven siblings, Linda (Ed Branson), Gloria (Ken Gordon), Gene, Butch, Nancy (Don Luce), Frank and Irene.

Art enjoyed spending summers at Moose Pond, teaching Hunter Safety classes, and doing everything outdoors such as hiking, hunting, snowshoeing, you name it.

After graduating from Skowhegan Area Hight School in 1977, Art traveled to the West Coast and Canada. On one of his trips through Washington State, he set up his tent under some tall trees at a highway exit in Olympia, only to wake up and realize he had just camped on the front lawn of the State Capitol.

In 1980 Art married Jackie Thornley of Dover-Foxcroft. Art and Jackie raised their son, Jeremie, in Harmony, and the three of them enjoyed bluegrass festivals, camping, fishing, canoeing, and visiting New Hampshire and Florida. Art sewed shoes and worked construction for many years. Sadly, Art lost Jackie after her long battle with cancer in 2010. Fortunately, lightning does strike twice, and Art met Laurie (Watson) in 2012 and married her in 2016. They enjoyed kayaking and four-wheeling until he was no longer able to due to his health.

Art tragically lost his mini-me in 2018, when his son, Jeremie, died at the age of 37. Through the ups and downs, Art has always been known to those he loved as a fun, down-to-earth friend who could always be counted on to make people laugh and take care of people he loved.

Art is survived by his wife, Laurie, of Ripley; his mother, Christine; his seven brothers and sisters; his son, Nicolas (Melissa) Wacome of Macon, Ga.; two stepdaughters, Lisa Royal and Jessica Worster; grandchildren Tristan, Violet, Jacobie Bolduc, Mason and Brianna Wacome; five step-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and dog, Romeo. He was predeceased by his wife, Jackie; his son, Jeremie; and his father, Eugene.

There will be a Celebration of Life held on Oct. 22 at 10 a.m. at the Skowhegan Community/Rec Center, 39 Poulin St.
