Jean Leconte Bolière born on April 15, 1935, first of the two (boys) brothers. Son of Occius and Fillette Boliere. He died peacefully as His maker called him home at 7:08 am on July 27, 2021 at Bridgeport Hospital following an excruciatingly debilitating battle with meningioma.
Leconte was deeply spiritual with a passion to serve Christ. A man who loved God and a friend of all. He experienced pain when his parents died before he even knew them. Throughout his journey in life, he relied on God to walk with him and shaped his life. Before migrating to Connecticut in the late 80’s he worked at Shell where he was able to provide for his family and helped the needy along the way. When he settled in Connecticut, he worked at the Hyatt for years where he was a model employee until his retirement. His reward was an all-expense paid trip to Hawaii. Upon his returned, he stated, “Ah se bèl bagay nèt”. And now, the ultimate award, dad is seated in the presence of his Maker.
Leconte “Papa” will be lovingly missed by his darling and devoted wife Marie Adina Bolière, his Children Pr. Dukens ‘Duke” Bolière, Winkler “Bob” Bolière, Jean Samuel “Sasam” Bolière, Géraldine “Didine” Bolière-Benoit and D’joly “D’jo” Michée Bolière; His Daughters-In-law: M. France Quettant-Bolière; Ife Bolière and Bonita Stringer; His son-in-law: Patrick Benoit; His grandsons: Kendrick Noah Bolière, Isaac Jerome Bolière, Jacob Leconte Bolière; His grand-daughters: Privelyne Cavalier, Oriana “Yannou” Dinah Bolière; Metuselah J.

Meningioma did not touch our dad’s spirit throughout that fight. He died a warrior and never lost his sense of hope. His rock during that fight was his devoted and courageous wife, Marie Adina Bolière, who had been tirelessly by his side.
