Rev. Fr. Hector L. Bolduc, 76, of De Pere, Parish Priest of St. Michael Church in De Pere, died peacefully in the early hours of Monday, September 10, 2012. He was born June 21, 1936 in Gilford, NH, son of the late Hector and Aurore (Theberge) Bolduc. Fr. Bolduc was a veteran of the US Army serving in the European Theatre. He was an avid world traveler and collector. Fr. had been a member of the Marian Fathers in Stockbridge, MA before going to Catholic University in Washington, D.C. He was ordained in Econe, Switzerland on June 29, 1974 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. Fr. Bolduc had been one of the earliest American members of the Society of St. Pius X, and was the District Superior of the Southwest District in the United States for several years until 1984 - after the Southwest and Northwest Districts were united into the present USA District. It was due to Fr. Bolduc's efforts that the SSPX obtained the substantial properties of St. Mary's, Kansas, Queen of Angels Church in Dickinson, Texas, St. Vincent de Paul Church in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as many other places for offering the Traditional Latin Mass. For the last 35 years, Fr. Bolduc has been assisting at St. Michael Church in De Pere. He also has been instrumental in the founding of over 20 mission chapels throughout the country. Fr. left a lasting legacy through all those he has touched. He is survived by his brothers, Kenneth (Barbara) Bolduc, Roland Bolduc, Morris Bolduc, Ernest (Ellen) Bolduc, Armand Bolduc, Robert (Marilyn) Bolduc; his sisters, Anita (Norman) McKeown, Lauretta (Raymond) Seabeck, Helen (Paul) Gaudet, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Charles A. Bolduc; and sisters, Theresa Tracy and Barbara Colby. Friends may call at RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 305 North Tenth Street, De Pere, from 4-8pm on Thursday, September 13, 2012 with continual rosary throughout the night. Visitation will continue on Friday at St. Michael Church, 1782 Chapelle Rue, De Pere from 9am until 10:30 when a Solemn Traditional Latin Requiem Mass will be offered. Burial will take place in Gilford NH. Please go to www.ryanfh.com to send online condolences to the family. Please follow the link below to view Fr.
