CHESHIRE – Robert Edmund Boisvert, 66, passed away on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at St. Mary’s Hospital. He was the loving and devoted husband of Janine (Tovar) Boisvert, whom he was married to for 28 years.
Rob was born on June 26, 1953 in Waterbury, son of Marian (Marzano) and the late Lucien Boisvert.

Whether he was selling Pepsi, ad space at The Cheshire Herald, or beer and spirits at G&G, Connecticut Distributors or Northeast Beverage, he had a winning personality and a smile that would light up any room.
Rob loved his friends from “The Island,” a small but raucous group of people that were always together cooking, drinking, laughing and listening to Beatles music. They include the Donovans, the Olsens, the Longos, and Terry Wright.
