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.
