Gary E. Rouillard, 85, of West Hartford, husband of Muguette "Midge" (Veilleux) Rouillard, died Monday, July 25, 2016 at Hartford Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Born and raised in Hartford, the son of the late Peter and Dora (Dowds) Rouillard, Gary graduated from Hartford High School and served with the U.S. Army during the Korean War.

Gary earned a Bachelor's degree from the University of Hartford later in 1968, and in retirement, he worked as a stock broker, and prepared taxes with H.R. Block. The most enjoyable part of life was the extensive travels that he most enjoyed with the love of his life, Midge. Gary's social life revolved around Rockledge Country Club where he golfed for years. He was a most avid reader, especially enjoying books of history. He boxed in his youth and enjoyed the sport throughout his life .He and Midge enjoyed dancing and their nightly routine game of cribbage. Gary was also a member of the American Legion (Post-96). Besides Midge, his wife of nearly 51 years, he is survived by four children and their significant others, Allan Archambault and Diane Dupuis of Colchester, Joanne and Mike Frehse of Charlotte, NC, Gary and Rosanne Archambault of Bloomfield, and Michelle Hebert and Jason Schaffrick of Farmington; five grandchildren (all the apple of his eye), Johannah, Amanda, Craig, Amy and Logan; and three great-grandchildren, Michael, Julia, and Elijah.
