Brian Boudria was born on May 7, 1952, in Chandler, Arizona to Russ and Helen Boudria He was the twin of Bruce Boudria and they were the youngest of the five children. Russ was in the Air Force, so the family traveled and lived all over the United States. Helen was the strict Irish mother that kept the crew in line while their father was serving in the Air Force as a B52 pilot. There was a strong bond in the Boudria Family, and they worked as a team since they moved often and felt the need to protect the younger siblings and make them able to take on anyone or anything that was in their way.

The kids were very competitive with each other in just about anything requiring physical ability. They challenged each other in just about everything- from leg wrestling to bouncing a ball off the roof with a tennis racquet. They all excelled in various athletic abilities with each sibling having their own specialty. Rusty was a very skilled and tough football player, Chris, the only daughter, was an excellent speed skater, Danny’s gift was wrestling, and he also guided the twins to that sport, where they all three excelled. When Brian and Bruce were young and trying to learn wrestling holds, they would sometimes get their dad involved and since that was not something he was familiar with the boys could get the better of him.

Brian became an excellent wrestler, but he developed a true love for the game of golf. His Dad, Russ, was a golf pro and under his tutelage Brian began to show the great promise on the golf course. Russ was extremely proud of Brian for excelling in the sport he loved. He won medals in golf as a young boy against some great golfers. When he was in high school, his coach said that Brian was the absolute best high school golfer he had ever seen.

Brian attended Lincoln University on a golf scholarship and excelled there. After graduation he was able to help his older brother, Russ, get a golf scholarship to attend Lincoln. Russ also was a graduate of Lincoln University. Brian also served in the army after graduation.

Brian and Cam were married in 1993. They had an eventful marriage that was sometimes quite trying. When they were no longer legally married, Brian and Cam still loved each other very much. He cherished her throughout the ups and downs of his life. She was the one constant in his life and was always there when he needed her. He relied on her for her common sense and trusted her in helping him make important decisions.

Cam’s son, David, and Brian became very close. Brian was proud quite of David and his accomplishments. Brian helped inspire in David his love for golf for which he is very grateful. He also loved David’s daughters, Ivy and Lucy and considered them to be very special little girls.

Brian was very generous and tried to help the homeless. He was a loving brother, gregarious, funny, quirky, and very interesting human being. He was a major sports fan and was very knowledgeable about what was going on in just about every aspect of sports.

Brian will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He is the son of the late Russell and Helen Boudria and the brother of the late Christine (Cornell) Bowen. He is survived by his three brothers, Bruce (Charlotte), Russ (Joyce) and Dan (Pat), ex-wife Cam Boudria, and stepson David (Jillian) Everingham, and granddaughters Ivy and Lucy and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Memorials may be made in Brian's name to Kohl-Jeck VFW Post # 2866 - St. Charles, MO.
