Obituary

TOPSFIELD – Mr. Raymond Francis Bourgoin, 72 of, Topsfield, beloved husband of Dianora Maria (Lamberti) Bourgoin, died unexpectedly, Sunday, June 12th, 2022 at his home.

Born in Providence, R.I., he was the son of the late Raymond E. and Marjorie (Kearns) Bourgoin. He was raised and educated in Warwick, R.I. and was a graduate of Bishop Hendricken High School. He continued his education at Providence College where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree as a member of the class of 1971.

An honorably discharged veteran, he served his country as a member of the United States Airforce for 8 years. He continued his service to his country as a member of the Rhode Island Air National Guard, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel following 20 additional years of service. He was greatly respected for his service to his country and made many lifelong friends through the Air National Guard.

Mr. Bourgoin held multiple positions in the financial technology field over the course of his long and illustrious career. He had been associated with the CVS Pharmacy company for many years. He also worked for EDS as a technology consultant. He was most proud of his time as the Chief Technology Officer of the Boston Stock Exchange, a position he held with esteem for many years until the time of his retirement.  

A longtime resident of Warwick and West Warwick, R.I. and Saugus, he and his beloved wife more recently moved to Topsfield. Ray had four passions in his life: flying, photography, cars and first and foremost, his grandchildren. He was an expert Navigator and relished every moment spent in the air. He was also a zealous car buff having been a member of the Porche Owners Club. He even treated his beloved Porche better than some treat their kin. He liked golfing, but was happiest surrounded by his family, his friends and his beloved flying buddies. He will be deeply missed.

Raymond is survived by his beloved wife of 32 years, Dianora Maria (Lamberti) Bourgoin of Topsfield, his children, Michael E. Bourgoin and his wife, Robyn of West Warwick, R.I., Arthur W. Caggiano and his wife, Amy of Wakefield, Krista M. Evans and her husband, John of Danvers and Keith F.
