Monson- Lawrence D. Boulanger, 76, passed away Wednesday, July 22, 2020. Larry was born in Lynn, MA May 14, 1944 to the late Charles and Ruth (Woodman) Boulanger. He was a graduate of Boston University. In his younger years he enjoyed hiking in the White Mountains, tennis, and running marathons. Throughout his life he enjoyed nature, paddling a canoe, ocean breezes, sweet corn, the Red Sox, camping, good New England ice cream, lobster, his eastern MA family, donuts, raising granddaughters, and bad jokes. He had a mischievous smile and was always dapper. Larry has been a resident of Monson since 1969, where he and his wife have raised a family. Larry was a durable medical equipment sales representative for several companies. He was a member of St Paul's Unitarian Universalist Church in Palmer where he was a member of the board of directors for many years. In his retirement he delivered "Meals on Wheels" for Greater Springfield Senior Services. He was a Type 1 diabetic; he and his family empathize with others challenged by this illness.
Lawrence leaves his wife, Holly E. (Hitt) Boulanger; daughters, Aimee Boulanger (William Patric) of Washington State, Robin Boulanger of Monson, Nicole Boulanger (Daniel Tassinari, Jr) of Springfield; son Saladene Disco-Williams of Ware; four granddaughters, Jeannette Patric, Ila Mera Patric, Isabelle Tassinari and Julia Tassinari. Larry also leaves beloved siblings, sister Jean (Joseph), and brothers Charles (Marsha) and Robert (Liza) -- and nieces and nephews, all to whom he felt lifelong connection. He grew up with four cousins "The Perry Girls" who also were like siblings and he loved their families as well. He was preceded in passing by a beautiful infant daughter he and Holly lost at birth, and his older sister Dwyn; both were cherished and their passing grieved.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
