James L. Boudreau
James L. Boudreau of La Crosse, WI passed away peacefully on January 11, 2022, after a long battle of different medical complications but most recently the battle he fought hard against lung cancer on January 11, 2022. God answered our prayers to end pain and suffering for Jim as he was welcomed Home to heaven and is starting a new beginning.
He enjoyed many parts of living like fishing, golfing, playing games, watching sports (even re-runs of Badger and Packer football games) but most of all he found great fulfillment in being with family and friends. His sense of style and fashion was well known by all who knew him. He took pride in making sure his appearance was spot on and his signature wear usually had a pastel top and sharply pressed jeans. He would always make you laugh, no matter what the situation; he liked to have fun!
Jim said goodbye to his “significant other”, as he always called her, Karen Newbury, his daughters Rene’ Jacobs-Guentner (Todd Guentner) and Jamie Day (Daniel Day), his grandchildren Trent Jacobs (Katie Jacobs), Emily Juneau (Aaron Juneau), Amelia Guentner, Emery Day (Haley Day), Hanna Day and Clare Day, and his great grandchildren Logan, Lydia, Calloway and Alden (a.k.a. The Prince). He is also survived by his three siblings and their families. He left a note for us that we found after he passed and at the end it said: You may be gone from my sight, but you will never be gone from my heart.
A Celebration of life service will be held at 11:30 AM, Saturday, January 29th at Coulee Region Cremation in Onalaska. Visitation will be held from 10:30 am until the time of services. A celebration luncheon will be held after the service for those interested in sharing stories with the family.
The family would like to thank Gunderson Hospice, and their staff who guided them and cared for Jim in such beautiful ways, and Coulee Region Cremation for their assistance during this difficult time.
