Bernard L. 'Butch' Saucier 85

Worcester - Bernard Louis Saucier, 85, died unexpectedly on Saturday, November 21, 2020 after being stricken ill.

Bernard, also known as "Butch" was born in Uxbridge on April 18, 1935 he was one of fourteen children to the late Edmund and Lucille (Poulin) Saucier. 'Frenchy' (as he was known to many given his French heritage), later met Shrewsbury Street native Anna Mazzamurro while at a dance at the former P & A Club in Millbury. They married on June 2, 1962 in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel - St. Ann Church and Butch was immediately adopted into a large and loving Italian family.

Butch was an extremely hard worker and was able to overcome polio at a young age which left him with a slight limp. He never complained of his ailments, and ended up working as a supervisor for over forty years at Kennedy Die Casting in Worcester. He then worked for ten years for the Massachusetts Turnpike as a toll collector in which he often carefully adorned his New York Giants sweatshirt while in the booth, against the advice of his sons Peter and Paul, as he greeted travelers to and from his various assigned exits.

Butch cherished the friendships he made at the East Side Improvement Club on Shrewsbury Street where he was considered an adopted Italian. He would often meet and join his brothers-in-law and friends for a Miller Lite, and more than often, a spread of well prepared foods by its members. In later years, he was content with his iPad to surf the internet, keep tabs on people via Facebook and play solitaire. He was happily Anna's personal driver on the myriad of errands she needed to complete. Throughout his years, Butch remained humble and proud of the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren. The one constant throughout Butch Saucier's eighty-five years was family…and what a blessing!

In addition to his wife of 58 years, Anna, he leaves their children, Lisa A. Rosenkrantz of Shrewsbury, Peter L. Saucier and his wife Lisa, and Paul B. Saucier and his wife Lana, all of Worcester; his grandchildren, Kelsey, Ryan, Alana and Paul Saucier, and Anna and Lauren Rosenkrantz; his siblings, Patricia Rousselle and Deborah McMahon, both of Rhode Island, John Saucier of Whitinsville, Gary Saucier of Worcester and Jean Ethier of Uxbridge; his sister-in-law, Leona (Dattis) Mazzamurro of Worcester; also survived by many nieces & nephews and their families.

Butch was predeceased by his siblings, Donald, Edward, Richard, Phillip and Paul Saucier, Lorraine Bernier, Shirley Dempsey and Bernice Desilet; in-laws and good friends, Pasquale 'Patsy' Mazzamurro, Rose and Joseph Monroe, Carmella and John Olivieri, Michael and Francis Simone and Nicholas 'Nick' Mazzamurro.

Out of an abundance of love and caution for family and friends, services for Butch will be private.

Anne, know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. My mom and dad loved you both, and mom counted you among her few, close friends. Butch was always good to me, and even through the teasing, I knew that there was an abundance of caring.
Peace to you, and even at this holiday time, be sure to let the good memories offer you and the kids deep condolence.
