Arthur Joseph Bourassa, Jr., 80, of Pittsfield, MA, passed away October 8, 2020 at his home surrounded by his family.
He was born in North Adams, MA on October 1, 1940 son of the late Arthur J. and Violet M. Clairmont Bourassa.

In his earlier years he loved to go sailing with his brother, cross country skiing and snowmobiling as well as family vacations to Cape Cod. "Jr" was always the life of the party.

Joie, Amy, Adam , and family,
Please accept our condolences on the passing of "Jr". What a surprise when Tracie was going through Facebook and saw the post. He was always such a good neighbor and friendly when we were out and about and met he and Joie.
May your memories help you through these difficult times. RIP "Jr."

David, Judy, Tammie, Tracie, and Brendin Herrick
