Ryan Boulay Obituary

Lincoln - Ryan F. Boulay, 50, of Lincoln, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 11, 2023, at his home in Lincoln, surrounded by his beloved family, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was the loving husband of Arestea (Karalis) Boulay, with whom he shared a beautiful marriage of fourteen years.

Ryan was born on November 15, 1973, in Pawtucket, a son of Fred and Sharlene (Fitzgerald) Boulay. He spent the majority of his life in Lincoln, and was a graduate of Lincoln High School, Class of 1991.

A hardworking and dedicated individual, Ryan worked for many years in the roofing industry before retiring due to illness.

Known for his infectious humor and warm personality, Ryan had a knack for brightening any room he entered. He cherished spending quality time with his family and friends, bringing joy and laughter to every gathering. When he wasn't making others smile, he enjoyed playing golf, shooting darts at Patrick's Pub in Providence and the Galway Bay Irish Pub in Pawtucket, and was big fan of New England sports. His proud Irish heritage was dear to his heart, reflecting his spirit and love for life.

In addition to his wife and parents, he is survived by two sons, Chase Boulay and Evan Boulay, of Lincoln; one brother, Brent Boulay of Lincoln; his niece and nephews, Aydan Boulay, Sami Karalis and Layla Karalis; and his beloved dog, Echo.
