Theodore Joseph ‘Ted’ Brouillard

Theodore Joseph ‘Ted’ Brouillard passed away peacefully at home, on Monday, February 26, 2024 surrounded by his loving family. 

Ted was born in Waterbury, CT November 26, 1938 to the late Theodore Xavier and Marie Alice (Goyette) Brouillard. 

Ted was a devout Catholic, and was sure to be seen every Sunday & Holy Day of Obligation, in the front pew of church for mass. When he could no longer attend church, he would be watching mass on TV with his devoted wife of 15 years Frances (Muro) Brouillard. 

Graduate of Kaynor Technical High School in Waterbury, CT. Ted was a hard working electrician by trade. He loved the ocean, camping, bowling, golf, cribbage, singing with The Bells & Bows, and farming on “The Brouillard’s Fondest Wish Farm” in Litchfield, CT. He had enjoyed an active full life, with his family traveling by car camper in tow. The most memorable camping experiences were with North American Family Campers Association (NAFCA), and the CT Chapter Tic Toc, where he held a number of offices within the entire organization, and made a lifetime of friends. 

Ted was a loving husband to his wife Frances, and is survived by his daughters MaryAnn Brouillard & partner Joe Vitro of Becket, MA, and Alice Lapierre of Torrington, CT. He also leaves two grandchildren, grandson Abdallah Hage-Sleiman & his wife Dr Rebecca Brushwood, and two great granddaughters Madeline and Coraline, of New Zealand. 

Granddaughter Farah Chanel (Hage-Sleiman) Roy Esq & husband Derek, and two great grandsons, Luca and Milo of Alexandria, VA. 

Ted also leaves, three brothers, Fernand, Edgar, Armand, and two sisters, Dolores Bergeron, and Rita LaMadeleine, as well as, in-laws and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces & grandnephews. He was predeceased by his brothers, Rene, Maurice and Léon, step-son Chuck Grater, and widow of Helen ‘Hetch’ (Shabon) Brouillard. 

He loved and was loved by his family and friends. The family wishes to send our gratitude in a loving message to all of Ted’s family, friends, camping families, caregivers and healthcare professionals who have made his life, and our life memorable, meaningful, happier, and easier to handle through life’s wild ebbs and flows. His life had great meaning because you were there, no matter how long or short the time was that you knew him. Ted was a quiet, humble, wise man of integrity, with a loving and giving heart. He rests in peace with God, and in the loving memories with us.

Ted was a wonderful man who I met through NAFCA. I had the opportunity to spend some time with him and it was great to learn so much about him. He will be missed and may he rest in peace!


Fran & family of Ted, we had the pleasure of knowing Ted from camping with NAFCA. We have some fond memories over the years, lots of weekend camping trips and week long adventures where we shared meals, campfires and stories. They are some of our favorite times. We are sorry to hear of his passing and hope you all know he was special to all of us too! We will miss him.
