Bernard E. Boyt, 89, a longtime resident of Chelmsford, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at Care One at Concord, with his loving daughter Teri, holding his hand through his final moments and all of his family members sending love and prayers from home. He was the beloved husband of the late Joan, Mary Gail, and Mary Lou Boyt.

He was born on April 11, 1931 in Needham, MA, and was a son of the late Bernard and Marie E. Boyt.

Bernard was raised in Needham and was a graduate of Needham High School with the Class of 1949. He attended Burdett Business college and then went on to work for Raytheon where he was a business manager for 47 years. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed spending time doing yardwork at home. He never missed his Sunday breakfast at James’ Breakfast and More in Wrentham, owned by his granddaughter and her husband. Until very recently, he worked at L.L. Bean in Burlington for 11 years. He had many friends who he loved keeping in touch with. Most of all, Bernard cherished the time he spent with his family. He was always smiling and loved a good joke. His smile and positive spirit will be missed dearly.

Bernard leaves his children; Teri Toubeau of Norfolk, Gary Boyt of Bellingham, Elden Boyt of Franklin, and Lisa Lamoureux and her husband, John of Pelham, NH; his 13 grandchildren: Dennis, David, Coryn, Chelsea, Alexa, Austin, Tommy, Amy, Jen, Brittany, Melissa, Jessica, and Raymond; his 14 great-grandchildren; his sister Theresa Fontannay of Burlington; his niece Anne Canfield and her husband, Michael; and his nephew Michael Fontannay and his wife, Brenda.

Sadly, he is predeceased by his daughter Karen Simpson and his brother-in-law Frederick L. Fontannay.

I just learned of Bernie's passing. I am so sorry to hear he has left us. He was such an amazing guy with great stories and an upbeat personality and it was always a joy when he was scheduled to work at the store (LL Bean). He will be greatly missed!

My heartfelt condolences to the whole family. Bernie became my uncle when he married my Auntie Mary Gail, and was a part of my life for nearly 50 years. From babysitting me and my brothers, to taking me on college tours, to setting me up on a blind date (!), Uncle Bernie was ever present in my growing up. He was one of a kind.
Godspeed, darlin’

Grampy was the best. He loved all of his family and his friends so much. He leaves a legacy of kindness and positivity, he always had a smile on his face! (and a sarcastic remark) I am so happy and grateful that we all had him in our lives for as long as we did. He was one of the most reliable people I’ve ever known and he made sure to never miss a birthday or special milestone. He was always there for everyone that he loved no matter what. I will always cherish every memory I have with him, I miss him so much now and I always will. ❤️

Teri, Lisa, Elden and Gary,
Dick and I are so saddened by the loss of Bernie. He was a great friend, kind soul who never complained. We had lots of laughs over coffee at least once or twice a week. We will miss him for dinners at Paddy's Pub and Fishbones. Dick and Bernie go back a long way from their work at Raytheon and shared many memories. Our thoughts and prayers go our to all your family over your tremendous loss of a great dad, grandfather and great grandfather. May he Rest In Peace!
