GERALD THI BOUCHEY MASSENA- Gerald Thi Bouchey, Jerry to most, passed away surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, December 3, 2022, at the age of 51. Jerry was born on July 13, 1971 in Massena, New York to William Bouchey and Reatha Bouchey. He is survived by those loving parents as well as his wife, Cathy Height Bouchey, and sister and brother-in-law, Melisa and William Denney; all of Massena as well. He was also deeply loved by his grandmother, Donna Barkley of Potsdam, New York, niece Paige Denney of Charleston, South Carolina and his nephew Seth Denney of Massena New York. He is also survived by his step children Erin Gardner and her fiance Jason Miller of Massena, Ricky & Sabrina Gardner of Clemson, South Carolina, and Terry Gardner of Warrenton, Missouri. He was honored to gain 10 loving grandchildren through his marriage to Cathy. He will be greatly missed by his extended family stretched across the country including many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by his grandparents Floyd and Violet Bouchey formerly of Ogdensburg, New York. Jerry loved taking things apart and seing how they worked. Luckily he was extremely handy and could also put the things back together. He was a true jack-of-all trades; welding, plumbing, electrical, automotive, machinist, heating and refrigeration. You name it, he could fix it! He enjoyed a simple life; spending time with family and friends, camping, and fishing. There was hardly a time when he couldn’t be found in the garage tinkering on someone else’s vehicle or just sitting on the stool leaning on the bench “shooting the bull” and drinking a cold one with his dad, buddies and four-legged best friend Bella. At his request, there will be no funeral services held. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the care and guidance of the Donaldson Funeral Home where friends and family are encouraged to share memories and condolences online at www.donaldsonfh.com.

Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Jerry July 13 1971 December 3 2022.
