Staunton Boudreau May 30, 1928 - February 13, 2021

Staunton Edward ‘Stan’ Boudreau Jr. 

92, of St. Louis, Mo. passed away on Saturday, February 13, 2021.  Stan was born on May 30, 1928 to his parents Staunton Sr. and Clara Boudreau. He was a graduate of CBC High School, where he was active in alumni affairs, and St. Louis University Law School.  He served in the US Army in 1947-48.   He was an attorney at law retired from Monsanto Chemical Company.

He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Charles.  He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Lois (nee Pfeiffer), their four reasonably well-adjusted children Tom, Paul, Jane and John, a rich assortment of grandchildren by whom he was dearly loved, a number of great grandchildren and his siblings Francis and Ann.

Stan was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.  He was a wise, caring, devout and intellectually curious man.  Stan loved St. Louis and all things St. Louis whether it was the baseball Cardinals, the Symphony, the 1904 World’s Fair, the Mississippi River, The Opera Theatre Company of St. Louis, Forest Park, or the Zoo.  He could hold court on any such topic endlessly (or so it seemed).

Stan was an optimistic man who also would tell us that “these are the good old days” and his enthusiasm for life and learning was infectious.   He was the center of his family and he will be missed immensely.

    My deepest sympathy to Paul and the Boudreau siblings in the loss of your parents. It must be difficult losing them both in such a short time, but how wonderful that they both had such long and happy lives!

    Mom passed away this morning, one week to the day after Dad. Together in life and death. Her obit will appear on this site shortly.

    I remember all of the events you mentioned in your last note. It was a good childhood in a simpler time.

    Dear Lois and family,
    Steve and I were sad to see the notice of Stan’s passing. We have such fond memories of your friendship with my parents, Erwin and Adell from The Gatesworth. You were both so gracious and lively and we appreciated your companionship with my parents. Hope you will be comforted in these sad days with the strength from a life well lived.

    Lois, sorry to hear about Stan. I did not know Stan well, because my age was between that of his brother Francis and his sister Ann, but I always thought highly of Stan. We became, across the street, neighbors in 1942. May God bless your family.

    Stan & I were the remaining few members of St. Stephen’s class of 1942. We were on a committee which produced 3 wonderful reunions of that class. In later years he always called me with news of a classmate’s death. We had many fun phone conversations thru the years.

    My sympathy to his family. He was a very special man. May God rest his soul.

    Dear John, I remember you fondly from our high school days – especially English class. Saddened to learn of your father’s passing. My sincerest condolences to you and your family.

    Tom (Stan’s son) and I were best friends throughout grade school. I spent a significant amount of time in Stan’s house in Crestwood and got to know Stan and his wife Lois well. They were very nice people and I have a lot of fond memories of them. My sympathy goes out to Stan and his family. Buddy Bruns

      Thanks for your note. It’s been a long time since we were last in contact. I’m living in Durango, CO now, God’s country. Retired 10 years ago. Hope all is well with you and yours. Tom

        Tom, good hearing from you. You are correct, Durango, CO is a very nice place. My wife Cathy and I visited Durango a few years ago and took the Silverton Durango Rail Line – it was fantastic. I retired in 2012 and still living in Manchester, MO. My wife and I have visited all 50 states and camped in many of them.
        I thought about your dad and have many great memories that you and I both share including just a few:
        – Your dad was my Confirmation Sponsor, and my dad was yours,
        – We caught a fish at Ursuline Academy high school in Kirkwood, MO, but did not know what to do with it. Your dad came to the rescue and fileted it for us.
        – We washed your dad’s dirty-old car, but upon sight, he refused to pay us for the wash because the car was still very dirty. He was right.
        – He took us to see Ft. de Chartres on the Mississippi River in southern, Illinois.
        – He served as leader of our Scout pack and assisted us in making many things (i.e. checker board/chess board).
        I hope all is well. Take care.
