Obituary: Alfred T. Bousquet

Alfred T. Bousquet, at 81

Alfred T. Bousquet, 81, died at South Shore Hospital on July 21.

Mr. Bousquet was born in Salem, and served in the Navy on the USS Block Island. For his service, he earned the National Defense and European Occupation Service medals. He worked for the Hingham Tree & Park Department, as an auto mechanic for Saab, and retired as a machinist from Boston Gear Works.

Mr. Bousquet was a former 24-year resident of Hull and a current resident of Indian Harbour Beach, FL. After retirement, he and his wife spent their summers with family in Hull.

Mr. Bousquet loved playing softball and horseshoes, candlepin bowling, doing jigsaw puzzles, and having family adventures. He was quick with a joke and his proudest achievement was that, at 81 years old, he was still playing softball!

He is survived and will be missed by his wife of 59 years, Pat; and by their seven children: Patty, Brenda, Tom, Bob, Terry, Cindy, and Chris. He will also be missed by his grandchildren and great grandchildren. His closest siblings are Alice, Louise, Shirley, Louis (his identical twin), and Bobby. He touched the lives of many with his warm heart and welcoming way; he will be missed by too many to list here.

There will be a family-only memorial service on July 29. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, you perform a random act of kindness.

See for online condolences.
