BOULTER, Brian C.
By Nancy McCARTHY, Page A22
Husband, father, brother, uncle, friend. Born May 14, 1954, in Peterborough, Ontario Died March 19, of lung cancer, in Toronto, aged 51.
Born the youngest of three, Brian's first challenge was to survive living with two older sisters who were never short of advice. Actually it was only one sister who drove him crazy and that would be me. Brian rose to the challenge of the bossy older sister often to the point of fisticuffs and it only subsided when, quite honestly, I could not beat him any longer. Being the only boy and the youngest child, older sister Marlene and I (but mostly I) earnestly attempted to enlighten our parents as to how much they were spoiling him. When Brian was 9, dad bought him a 6 hp. motor and an aluminum boat. We lived on the Trent Canal system and my mother said he could take the boat out only if he stayed between the two buoys that she could see him from our back door. He would spend hours going back and forth and back and forth. Getting him to come in for meals was yet another challenge. My sister and I would be waving our arms madly from the dock but he would just ignore us and keep on going. "He's just a boy," my mother would say.
Brian played so hard that he broke his leg three times over the course of a few years. It never seemed to slow him down. He could be seen on his bike, in the boat or hobbling down the street as fast as his legs would take him! Several times my dad warned Brian that if he had one more flat tire or busted the gears on his bike that would be the end of it. But he kept on repairing the bike, it seems.
Friends factored very large in Brian's life. In the late 1950s, our neighbourhood was teeming with young children; Brian and his partners in crime were always on the loose. One time, Brian and his Friends decided to "camp out" in our rec room downstairs. When my mother smelled something strange and investigated she discovered that they had set a mattress on fire by putting a lamp under the covers.
Our family loved holidays and we often trailered our boat to different parts of Ontario -- the Thousand Islands, Huntsville, Presqu'ile Point. Boats became a huge part of Brian's life; he was employed by Paris Marine for more than 20 years and at family get-togethers he told stories about life in the boat business. Although he was only 5-foot-10 he had a 6-foot-4 voice: The more stories he told the bigger his voice became. Such was his enthusiasm and it was contagious.
He married Debbie GAFFNEY in 1980 after a long courtship. Secretly my sister and I believed it took him so long because he wanted to be sure Debbie was committed to all of his recreational activities and toys. In 1985, their son Charles was born; in 1990, Anna came along. As a family they took several vacations, mainly in the winter to sunny tropics. Debbie often joked that whenever she suggested doing some home improvements Brian would at first agree and then a couple of days later talk her into taking a trip, instead. They lived in a small village and he and Debbie always seemed to be on the road taking Charles or Anna to hockey, baseball, dance, work or Friends. He never complained about this no matter what time of day or night. He also delighted in sharing his childhood stories with them, often on the way home from church on Sunday mornings.
Although Brian worked very long hours in the summer and often had to arrive late and leave early for work, he loved coming to our cottage and the family time together. He was always like a big kid ready to do just about anything.
In December, 2005, my brother was diagnosed with lung cancer. He met it head-on with courage and determination to beat it, but it was not to be. The loss we all feel is overwhelming. But we have to go on because Brian had "no time for whiners."
Nancy McCARTHY is Brian's sister.
