Butch was born in Worcester, to the late Paul H. Meunier (1986) and Edith D. (Belanger) Meunier (2021). He was raised and educated in Shrewsbury, graduating from Shrewsbury High School prior to enlisting in the United States Army National Guard. Butch worked for the Town of Shrewsbury Water Department for over twenty years, before retiring.
In his free time, he loved NASCAR racing, camping, and boating on Lake Quinsigamond in the summer. Butch enjoyed being around cars, visiting the casino, loved oldies music from the 50’s and 60’s, and getting his morning coffee with his buddies at the Dunkin Donuts in White City. Butch was known for his ability to fix anything, as “Mr. Fixer-Upper.”
