Mr. Cloutier leaves his son Christopher Cloutier and his family and his daughter Jessica Lenzing and her family from Colorado. He also leaves his oldest brother Francis S. Cloutier from Texas and another brother, Michael R. Cloutier, from Spencer, MA. He also leaves 11 grandchildren, and nieces and their families, cousins and close friends.
He was born in Albany, NY and grew up there until he was a teenager. He then moved to the Worcester area where most of his family were located. Mr. Cloutier was a graduate of local schools and colleges and was employed in the computer field for most of his career as a director and CIO specializing in healthcare environments. He was also a small business owner in the Worcester area. Earlier in his career he was also a registered EMT and EMT Instructor. He also spent a number of years in the manufacturing environment holding several types of positions working his way from the machine shop floor to the front office. There he served as the buyer for specialty steels and managed a small group of process engineers.
Mr. Cloutier was a member of Morning Star Lodge, A.F. & A.

Mr. Cloutier was an avid reader and enjoyed robust discussions on almost any topic with his friends. He had a unique sense of humor and the ability to make almost anyone laugh. He was diagnosed with cancer in 1998 and endured many painful recurrences of the disease. With all the pain and suffering he was subjected to, he was also a man of deep faith. He believed that the lord would not bring him to something that the Lord would not also help him through it. When the pain was at its highest point or other things were going wrong he left his fate to the Lord and he always stayed positive.
