June 24, 1933 – March 8, 2020
Arthur Frederick Boisvert, 86, passed away on March 8, 2020, surrounded by his family at the Slave Lake Hospital. Art was born June 24, 1933 in Kinuso, Alberta to Benjamin and Vera Boisvert. He was the second youngest in a family of seven children. Art will be fondly remembered by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, step-grandchildren, step-great grandchildren and many dear friends.
Art will be best known for his passion for life, music, extensive jokes (some good, some not so good), his vast knowledge of local history, and pool. As co-owner of the Kinuso Mercantile he could always be found visiting with his customers, most of which were friends and neighbors. He was an avid small businessman and community booster who, over the years, worked to help develop and promote the Kinuso area. He loved listening to and helping family and friends, and would remind us that life is short and you must live it to its fullest. A few of his favorite quotes were “work hard and play hard”, “life is not a curtain call”, and “be happy, don’t worry”. He is survived by his daughter, Lorraine Boisvert of Slave Lake, daughter, Cindy (Len) LeBlanc of Slave Lake, son, Barry (Heather) Boisvert of Kinuso, and son Joe (Cindy) Boisvert of Slave Lake and his sister, Josephine (Dale) Cook of Calgary.
Mr. Boisvert is predeceased in death by his wife, Doris Boisvert (nee Seifridt).
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date due to the Covid-19 virus.
