Kurt Douglas Brodeur – Cumberland

Kurt Douglas Brodeur, 56, of Cumberland, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, at the Philip Hulitar Hospice Center in Providence, R.I. He was the beloved husband of Donna K. (Boyle) Brodeur, to whom he was married on June 8, 2012.

Born on January 28, 1963, in Woonsocket, R.I., he was the son of the late Lucien and Ruth (Beckwith) Brodeur.

A graduate of Woonsocket High School, Class of 1981, where he had been a member of the school band, Kurt then proudly and honorably served our country in the United States Navy. He worked for 30 years for the United States Postal Service as a mail carrier, and for many years as a caretaker for the Wrentham State School in Wrentham, Mass., and for Avatar Residential Inc. in Lincoln, R.I.

A resident of Cumberland for the past three years, he previously lived in North Smithfield, Woonsocket, and Cumberland, R.I.

A warm, caring, outgoing man of strong faith, he had a wonderful smile and a heart of gold. He was an avid sports fan, especially of the Red Sox and the Patriots, having been a season ticket holder for many years. He loved racquetball and fishing, and held a very special place in his heart for his faithful companion, his dog "Boots."

In addition to his wife, he leaves his step-children: Timothy J. Corey of North Smithfield, R.I.; Jonathan P. Corey of North Smithfield, R.I.; and Nathan P. Sheppard of Lincoln, R.I. He was the dear brother of Glenn Brodeur and his wife, Nancy Whitehouse-Brodeur, of Franklin, Mass.; Keith Brodeur of Providence, R.I.; Karen Russo and her husband, Dana Russo, of Cumberland, R.I.; and the late Gail L. Brodeur-Charest and her husband, Clive Charest, of Cranston, R.I. He leaves his niece, Sarah Lopatka of Cumberland, R.I.; and his nephews, Kyle Baillargeon of Cumberland, R.I., and Eric Crepeau of New York; as well as many dear friends. Kurt was the former husband and dear friend of Leslie S. (Namaka) Brayall of Pawtucket, R.I.
