of Chelmsford, Army Vet; 48
CHELMSFORD -- Bruce M. Benoit, 48, died peacefully Saturday morning, February 15th, in Boston, after an arduous battle with cancer.
Bruce is survived by his wife, his love, his strength, Liz, and his beautiful daughters, Samantha and Shannon Benoit, all of Chelmsford.
Born in Milford, MA, Bruce attended the Milford public schools, graduating from Milford High in 1983. Following high school, Bruce served in the United States Army and then in the Army National Guard until his honorable discharge in 1994. For the last 22 years, Bruce was a devoted employee of Corporate Telephone Services as a telecommunications technician, doing what he loved - solving problems for his clients.
Outside of work, Bruce was an avid fan of the Patriots and Bruins, a discriminating music lover and reader, and a technology enthusiast. An outdoors kind of guy, Bruce loved camping, "barging" on Squam Lake, barbecuing on his deck, tending his gardens, and making sure the hummingbirds were well fed. Sharp and quick-witted, you could be sure that Bruce would make you feel welcome and make you laugh.
In addition to his wife and daughters, Bruce is survived by his mother, Violet Benoit of Milford, MA; his brother, Brian Benoit, wife, Lia, and their daughters, Ayla and Alyssa of Dracut, MA; his brother-in-law, Chris Young, wife, Karen, and their sons, Luke and Jacob of Newburyport, MA; and many family and friends who will miss him dearly. Bruce was predeceased by his father, Samuel Benoit of Woonsocket, RI.
