Obituary of John Thomas Boulton
BOULTON - It is with great sadness we announce the passing of John Thomas Boulton on Thursday, August 18, 2022. John was born on July 23, 1948 to parents Lloyd and Kathleen Boulton in Brockville, ONT. He was the middle brother of three boys, Charlie (Chuck) and Michael. Prior to his 18th birthday, John joined the Air Force where he would be stationed in Edmonton. This is where on a trip to the bank he would meet his future wife Frances Sylvia Adams, where she was working as a teller. During his 7 year enlistment, John's two children Kim and Tim would be born. John then started a 17year management position with the Hudson's Bay Company which would eventually bring them to Yorkton where they all reside now. John finished his career at the Yorkton Enterprise where he sold advertising. His friendly and joking personality quickly brought him many clients, as well as lifelong friends, whom still miss his calls to this day. Johnny B. as he was affectionately known, retired a short time after health problems lead him to a 7 valve bypass surgery in 2006. He decided it was time for family and things he enjoyed. John loved country music and became friends with many bands over the years. Their encore performances often finished very late, but at 13 Collacott Drive not the venue they were playing! John also loved hunting and fishing where there was often a friendly $1 wager made for the first fish caught and the biggest. John's hook was usually the last one in the water as he was always busy helping everybody else first. But John's biggest joy was golf, whether with family or friends. He was a huge and dedicated supporter at York Lake Golf Course and with the men's club. Wednesdays were always his day at the course. John enjoyed the fellowship and heckling with all the guys, but did have a regular foursome with Randy (Big Dog), Larry and 2 Tim's when they could make it. John's biggest thrill was on June 28, 2008 while playing in a tournament, where on the 11th hole he got the golfer's dream, a HOLE IN ONE! The prize was a new golf cart which he quickly transformed into a Montreal Canadiens tribute. Everybody knew when Johnny B. was coming down the fairway after that. The guys on the course would always love to place a Toronto Maple Leaf item in his cart when he wasn't looking. John was also awarded a lifetime membership at York Lake for all his volunteer work and dedication to the course and the men's club. John loved all animals and dogs topped the list as they were his other children and treated accordingly. We know T.J., Kia, Jay and Missy are now wagging their tails again upon John's arrival as they are together once again. John was a generous and kind man and those who knew him would see him always give something to somebody or share what he had. When at his favorite coffee spot (McDonald's) he would buy a burger or coffee for somebody that looked in need, on more than one occasion. John was a loving and caring husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. He will be missed but certainly not forgotten. John was predeceased by his parents Lloyd and Kathleen Boulton, his brother Charles (Chuck) Boulton as well as several aunts and uncles down East in Ontario. John leaves to cherish his memory, his wife Frances, daughter Kim (Blair Cmoc), son Tim, his younger brother Michael, niece Brandee (Chad Protasiewich) and her daughters, Greer and Aurora; his nephew, Brian; and his fur babies, Roku, Willow, Tugg and Oliver; John also had numerous cousins, nieces and nephews throughout Ontario and the U.S.A, as well as many friends. The graveside service was held on Friday afternoon, August 26th 2022 at the Yorkton City cemetery with Crystal Bailey officiating. Urnbearers were daughter Kim and son Tim.
