Roger L. Boudinot, 70, died unexpectedly of natural causes on Wednesday, July 13, 2022.
He was born July 30, 1951 in Bucyrus to the late Gilbert and Joyce (Pfleiderer) Boudinot. Roger grew up in Sulphur Springs and graduated from Col. Crawford High School in 1970 and was a steel worker at Shunk/PACAL in Bucyrus and ArcelorMittal in Marion. He was married to the love of his life, the former Darlene Cramer, on August 9, 2014 and she survives.
Roger will be remembered for his outgoing personality and picking on everyone he liked. He loved his grandchildren and great grandchildren and attending their ball games. He was very family oriented, hosting Boudinot reunions and tracing their lineage to the 1600s. He loved music, singing in the Country Gentlemen Chorus when he was younger and singing karaoke and DJing parties for many years. At home, Roger was usually tinkering in his garage, woodworking, diamond painting, gardening, collecting candles, and cheering for the Buckeyes. He tried to golf in years past and loved Lake Erie where Roger and Darlene camped at Wild Wings in Oak Harbor, took golf cart rides to watch boats, and did a lot of fishing.
Roger served in the Ohio National Guard from 1971-77, was a member of American Legion Post 181, and volunteered on the Liberty Twp. VFD for 20 years.
Roger is survived by wife, Darlene Boudinot; children, Rhonda Banks, Jake (Crystal) Boudinot, Kristina (Scott) Bunker, Danielle (Rhiley) Leonhardt, and Brittany (Cody) Kissling; 13 grandchildren and one expected; and two great grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brother, Larry Boudinot.
All services will take place at Wise Funeral Service in Bucyrus. Family will receive friends on Sunday, July 17 from 2-6 pm. The funeral will be held Monday at 11:00 am with Denny Teynor officiating. Burial will follow in Oakwood Cemetery and military rites by his American Legion brothers.
Memorial donations can be made payable to Gifts for Yanks and can be given at the funeral home. Memories and photos can be shared on Roger’s Tribute Wall.
