The family of Steven Paul Bois is sad to announce his passing on April 21, 2020. Beloved husband for 36 years of Cheryl L. (Adams) Bois and father of Michelle Elizabeth (Bois) Reed and Michael Steven Bois. He passed peacefully at home in Lakeville surrounded by his loving family.

Steven was born on November 12, 1954 in Middleboro, MA to the late Franklin L. Bois and Anne J. (Gillis) Bois. In his youth he developed a passion for adventure and love of the water with his brothers David and James. Together they explored the surrounding woods and enjoyed fishing the local ponds and river, often creating innocent mischief.

Steven is a graduate of Middleboro High School and holds an Associate's Degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering from Bristol Community College. Early in his career he managed the design and manufacturing of medical devices. This led him to create Bois Solutions Inc. in which he consulted on various engineering projects. Furthering his entrepreneurial goals he purchased and operated a successful retail franchise.

He was an ambitious and humble man who met the love of his life, Cheryl, during a stormy boat competition. They enjoyed a wonderful marriage of 36 years. As an avid sailor Steve and Cheryl often created memories sailing the waters of Cape Cod on their sailboat "Serenity". Together they also enjoyed an active lifestyle of water and snow skiing.

Steven was the proud father of his daughter Michelle and son Michael and was the epitome of a family man. He always had a strong and precious relationship with his children. He was involved and supported them in every aspect of their lives, creating loving and special moments with them each individually. He ensured all family vacations were special and memorable by carefully planning every detail. Taking an annual cruise always brought him back to his love of the water.

He always looked forward to the many family gatherings; especially the summer cookouts where you could always find him at the grill cooking his famous chicken wings or in the fall cheering on the Patriots.

His grandchildren Kayden and Jackson held a special place in their Papa's heart. It brought him great happiness sharing silly jokes, picking blueberries in the yard and being at their many activities.

A communicant of Saints Martha and Mary Parish (Lakeville), Steven was a religious and faithful man who always opened his door to others, making them feel at home. Family and friends found it easy to love him because of his sense of humor, strength, kindness and willingness to help. 

Steven is missed by all.

Steven's family would like to express their gratitude and thanks to all of the family, friends and wonderful caregivers who came to his side in support throughout his cancer treatment.

Steven is survived by his devoted wife Cheryl Lee (Adams) Bois, his beloved children Michelle Elizabeth (Bois) Reed of Berkley and Michael Steven Bois of Taunton. Grandfather of Kayden Michael Reed and Jackson Tucker Reed. Son of the late Franklin LeRoy Bois and Anne Julieanne (Gillis) Bois of Middleboro. Brother of David Gillis Bois and Nancy Anne Bois of Minnesota and the late James Allan Bois of Texas. Uncle to Emily Anne Bois of California, Holly Elizabeth Bruckelmyer of Minnesota, James Bois of Florida and Brandi King of Florida. Also Great Uncle to many nieces and nephews. 

Due to the current health crisis services for Steven will be private with memorial mass information to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Steven's name to Brigham and Women's Hospital (75 Francis St. Boston MA), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (450 Brookline Ave, Boston MA), or Compassionate Care Hospice (100 Myles Standish Blvd. Taunton MA).

Arrangements are being carried out by Dahlborg - MacNevin Funeral Home (280 Bedford St. Lakeville).

I knew Steve from BNI. I did not know him very well.
However when he went on medical leave there was a hole in where he should be. It makes me sad to think I should have made the effort to get to know him better!!
He was a dear man!!!
My sincere condolences to you all. Such a sad loss!!

Steve will be missed. Having been a friend of Steve's through BNI, I had the great pleasure to know and work with him for many years. He had a humble disposition, a kind smile, a glint in his eyes and was pleasant to all he encountered.

Sincere condolences.

I knew Steve from BNI, he was very welcoming when I first joined the group. I never got a hello from Steve that didn't have a smile accompanying it.

That smile was also there whenever we spoke. He seemed to have a joyous curiosity to learn something new. He also seemed to get just as much of a kick out of teaching something to someone else. I stopped by the house a year or so ago and had coffee, and even though he obviously wasn't feeling 100%, and couldn't even drink coffee with me, he still had that same smile and underlying enthusiasm. He told me all about the effects of his cancer and the various treatments. He talked about his grandkids, things he did around the house and asked about various people in our BNI group. He seemed to have a genuine love of every aspect of his life, both big and small, and that morning was no different.

I also remember a few years back, our group had a get together at the Boston Tavern one night. Steve told me all about his two kids; one thing that especially sticks out was how excited he was that his son was due to move back to Massachusetts soon. It was clear how much he loved his family.

I'm so sorry for your loss, especially at a time like this. I hope you have some comfort knowing there are lots of people out there thinking of your family.

I am so sorry to hear of Steve's passing. Such a wonderful, supportive and enthusiastic man. When we joined the Budget Blinds family, Steve was the first local BB neighbor to reach out, asking what he could do to help and passing along information about the territory we had purchased. He was always ready to lend a hand or his wisdom. We will forever be thankful that we knew Steven. Our sympathies to his family.
