Augustus “Gus” Paul Boi, beloved husband of 69 years to Marie Anita (Bernier) Boi, died peacefully on January 8, 2021 in his home in Bristol, CT. Gus was a lifelong resident of Bristol who graduated from the University of Hartford with a Business degree and retired from Stanley Black & Decker. He was a member of St. Gregory Church, Bristol.
He leaves behind his son, Keith Boi and daughter-in-law Kathy Boi; his daughter Eileen Castolene and her children Nicole Mena, Stefan and Danielle Squillante, as well as four great grand-children Sedona, Arden, Caiden and Landon; his daughter Donna Veilleux and son-in-law Craig Veilleux, their children Mandy Osborn, Christopher Gustin and Joshua Veilleux, as well as three great-grandchildren Arianna, Bella and Sadie; his daughter Barbara Greger and son-in-law Michael Greger, and their children Kristen and Samantha Greger.
Gus started his young life with polio and proved that physical limitations do not disqualify you from living a long and successful life. In fact, he understood that he was stronger and sought out challenges with a goal toward excellence as a consequence. He loved food and spent a lifetime perfecting the recipes his family so dearly loved. Gus was also a superior model boat builder and an avid restorer of all manner of watches, furniture – whatever needed restoring.
Due to COVID risks, a memorial service will be scheduled in the late spring. Memorial gifts may be made to St. Gregory’s Church, 235 Maltby Street, Bristol, CT 06010.
Funk Funeral Home, Bristol, CT is entrusted with his arrangements which will be communicated at a later date.
