Alfred Bourassa

Alfred (Fred) Bourassa, formerly of Berlin, and currently a resident of Port Richey, Fla. passed away at Brookwood Assisted Living in Hudson, Fla. on May 28, 2016. He was born in Berlin, on February 4, 1944, the son of Irene (Dupuis) Bourassa and Alfred Bourassa. Fred is a graduate of Notre Dame High School in Berlin. Further studies included computer programming and personnel training for Delta Airlines. He spent the majority of his working life as an employee of Delta Airlines stationed in cities both in the USA as well as abroad. The focus of his career was reservations and group travel. After retirement, he acquired his license in Pennsylvania real estate. While studying for his licensure he simultaneously worked for AAA travel in Pennsylvania. He loved family, traveling, cooking and was a fan of both the Tampa Bay Rays and Tampa Lightning. One of his recent hobbies was the reinstatement of both soft and saltwater aquariums. This was something he cherished from an earlier part of his life when he did not have the travel commitments that the years at Delta demanded. Fred was pre-deceased by his father, Alfred Sr., originally from Groveton, who was killed in World War II and his mother, Irene, originally from Berlin. He leaves behind a multitude of cousins who range from Florida, Connecticut to New Hampshire. A mass of Christian burial and interment will be held in the fall 2016 – to be announced.
