Keith D. Boisvert

May 29, 1985 — November 7, 2023

CONN/MASS

Keith D Boisvert unexpectedly and tragically departed this world on November 7, 2023, in Brighton, Mass. Keith was the youngest and by far the largest of his two siblings entering this world, on May 29th, 1985, weighing in at 8 pounds 12 ounces.

Full of life, Keith was sensitive, compassionate, and loving to everyone he came to meet throughout his life. Always one to achieve greatness, he excelled at everything he set out to conquer. From hunting, fishing, running 5K marathons and even Midget Football he was always ahead of his time. Keith attended Manchester and Mansfield CT Public Schools where he always had kind words for others and never failed to offer a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Over the years, Keith became a very talented, creative, and highly proficient cook and then Chef in the areas of private and public food service. He was very well acknowledged throughout the restaurant industry in the greater Hartford and Boston areas.

Keith will be deeply missed by his family and loved ones and everyone who knew him. Keith was predeceased by his father, Norman Boisvert Jr., as well as his stepfather Dennis McConnell.
He is survived by his partner Jake Gagliardi, his mother Gretta Mc Connell, his siblings Norman Boisvert III, Shannon (Carlos) Orbach, his grandmothers Gloria Czerkie and Margaret Martin, along with countless Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. Keith will also be dearly missed by His and Jake’s four-legged friend/dog Shelly.

While many people who knew Keith realized that he suffered from his addiction and battles with opiate abuse he did not pass of an overdose. While years of abuse, certainly may have been a contributing factor as the body may not show external signs of these struggles, one must understand that they do take their toll. Those who loved and respected Keith the most, want to remind you that if you or someone you know, is struggling with the grip of addiction that there is help available. There should never be shame in admitting that you or someone you love may need help. Years ago, Keith once told a family member who was struggling with mental health issues that, “It’s not how many times you fall but your actions when you get up and move forward”!  Don’t be afraid to speak up and say I need help.

Let Keith’s passing remind us that a winner is just a person who tried one more time. Let our Faith remind us that Keith’s struggles are over and he is at peace. Let not his passing be in vain.
Keith’s family will be overseeing final arrangements.
