dWilliam Kingsbury Obituary, Death – Former Medway Police Lieutenant William Boultenhouse passed away recently after a courageous battle with sickness, and Chief William Kingsbury expresses his deepest condolences to his community.
“Boult” started in the police department in 1983 as a dispatcher and special police officer, and he stayed until 2020. After finishing the police academy in 1987, he went on to become a full-time cop, rising through the ranks to sergeant in 1999 and lieutenant in 2007.
After Boult retired from active duty, he stayed on with the police department for another three years. Lieutenant Boultenhouse has worked as a patrol officer, a crime prevention officer, and a motorcycle officer.
He supervised patrol shifts and coordinated public safety messaging for our department. When Bill was promoted to lieutenant, he was assigned responsibility for public safety communications as well as patrol operations.
Boult has been characterized to us as the first to assist, the best friend anyone could wish for, and the cop you secretly hoped would pull you over within the last day.
Boult was the kind of law enforcement official whose presence alone would calm a mob. He was so approachable that even the lonely elementary schoolers gravitated toward him.
He was a trustworthy brother in blue. Boult, selflessly serving the needs of others, will be remembered fondly. The employees at Bill’s place of business are deeply saddened by his departure and extend their sympathies to his wife Kim, sons Brian and Danny, and daughter Shea.
Bill’s wake will be held on Sunday, April 23rd, at Ginley’s Funeral Home (111 Barber Street, Medway) from 4pm to 8pm. His funeral mass will be held at St. Joseph’s Church on Village Street in Medway on Monday, April 24 at 10:30 a.m. You’ll be able to read Bill’s obituary in Ginley as soon as it’s published.
