William Dunstone Boucher, age 87, passed away on September 22, 2021 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was born on August 8, 1934 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Helen and S.M. “Sam” Boucher. He grew up in Rock Springs, Wyoming and graduated from Rock Springs High. He attended the Univesity of Denver where he received a bachelor’s degree in business administration. After spending 2 years in Germany while serving in the U.S. Army during peacetime, he later moved to Denver, Colorado.
Bill met a childhood friend, Shirley Dickson, while living in Denver, and the two started dating and the rest is history. They were married on June 14th, 1959 and were together for the past 62 years. They eventually made their home in Colorado Springs where he worked for the State of Colorado as a State Compensation Insurance Auditor. When he wasn’t working, Bill enjoyed reading, studying theology, and listening to classical music. He was also a devout member of First United Methodist Church. But most importantly, he was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He embraced life, even more so after receiving a heart transplant 27 years ago. Bill was loved and will be missed greatly by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Shirley Boucher of Colorado Springs; his son, Keith Boucher of Westminster, Colorado; his daughter, Jennifer Hutchins and son in law, Steve Hutchins of Webster, New York; grandson, Stephen Hutchins and his wife Holly of Rochester, New York; and granddaughter, Sarah Latham and her husband Devin of Henderson, Nevada.
