Obituary for William Samuel "Bill" Boudle


Bill Boudle, 65, passed away at Cass County Memoria Hospital’s County Hospice in Atlantic on Monday, March 26, 2012.
William Samuel Boudle was born August 19, 1946, the son of William S. and Eda Louise (Johnson) in North Stratford, New Hampshire. He grew up and was schooled in Vermont to the age of 18 when he joined the Air Force for four years. He was an air policeman, stationed at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha.
Bill was married to Charlotte Weaver in Treynor, Iowa on November 19, 1965. The couple was blessed with three children. The family moved to Groveton, NH upon his discharge from the service. In 1979 they moved to Odebolt, IA where he was employed in water treatment until moving to Atlantic in 1980. Bill worked several jobs over the years, until discovering his true calling as "Bill the Bug Man." He owned Atlantic Pest Control until his retirement four years ago. Bill worked very hard at being ornery as his reputation will attest. He has been a very funny and loving man who will be remembered with a smile by all who knew him.
Bill coached baseball and enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge F and AM and North Star Lodge # 8 in Lancaster, NH. He was very active in the First United Methodist Church and enjoyed traveling to see his grandchildren.
His survivors include his wife, Charlotte; his daughter, Shannon Schmitt-Boudle; two sons, Brent (Lori) Boudle of Ozark, MO and Mike (Shari) Boudle of Ft. Calhourn, NE; six grandchildren, Ashley Boudle of Denham Springs, LA, Jordan Boudle of Denham Springs, LA, Shay Boudle of Ft. Calhoun, NE, Jaden Boudle of Ft. Calhoun, Dacey Boudle of Ft. Calhoun, and Austin Schmitt of Atlantic; one great grandson, Parker Stallings of Denham Springs; his father, William Samuel Boudle of Bloomfield, VT; three brothers, Lawrence Boudle of Groveton, NH, Samuel Boudle of Bloomfield, VT, and Bryan Boudle of Groveton, NH; two sisters, Barbara Cloutier of Groveton, NH and Janet French of Mooresville, NC; a number of nieces and nephews; and also his faithful four-legged companions, Ox, a golden doodle, Tucker, a sheltie and Louie and Penny, maine coon cats.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Eda Boudle; his sister, Delhia, in infancy; a son, William Ward, in infancy; and his granddaughter, Lexi Schmitt.
