BOUCHER, Roger Phillippe - Age 66, Lawrencetown, Halifax Co., passed away in Dartmouth General Hospital on June 24, 2013. Born in St-Georges de Beauce, Que., he was the son of the later Romeo Boucher. He joined the navy in 1965 with dreams of being a diver. His diving career took him from the far north to the south and all parts in between. His fondest memories were working with the original United States Navy Seal Teams and being Chief Pilot of the navy's mini sub, SDL-1. After 31 years in the navy, he began a second career in Explosive Ordinance Disposal, working throughout Canada and the United States with a three year sting in Maui, Hawaii. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Connie; his children, Robert (Sue), Danielle (Joseph), Rejean and Andre; grandchildren, Alicia, and Etienne. Memorial service to be held 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 29, in Pope John Paul XXIII. No flowers by request. Donations may be made to Canadian Cancer Society. "Strength in depth"
