    I remember Mr.B as a patient teacher. His low key way of presenting material made learning easy. His smile when students came up with right answers would light up his entire face.

    The world is diminished by his passing.

    I have very fond memories of Mr. Boudrot – whether it would be in Dedham, Wareham or camping. He was always such a “patient” man……especially since he was always out numbered with the amount of females coming in and out all the time.
    He is now at peace and is not suffering anymore. God Bless the Boudrot family. You are all in my prayers.

    When I started teaching at Riverdale School in 1996, Dick and I were the only male teachers, and we became friends as well as team members. I respected him in both capacities. I met his wife on many occasions, and I visited his home when one of his daughters was an infant. Teachers and students will miss him, but they will not forget him.

    I haven’t seen Dick in many many years, but I have talked to him a few times in the last couple of years. I remember him always having a easy smile and a kind word. We shared many times together as flight crew members of the Bully Beef Sq. in Japan. I wish all his family well and God bless. Marv Albers Lodi, California
