Douglas Craig Boulter, Jr.

Douglas Craig Boulter, Jr.

September 17, 1954 ~ December 15, 2023

Douglas Craig Boulter, Jr., “Craig”, of Jupiter, Florida and formerly of Woodbridge, Virginia died Friday, December 15th, surrounded by loved ones in his home.  He was 69 years old.

Craig was born in Biloxi, Mississippi. He met his wife Stephanie in 1972 at the age of 17 years old and they were  married in 1974.  They were married 49 years.  Craig was a loving husband and devoted father and grandfather, his grandkids call him Papa.  He is survived by his wife, Stephanie, his sons, Douglas Craig, “Craigie”, Daniel, “Danny” (Tara) and Chadd , his 3 grandchildren, Lily, Violet and Noah, his mother, Josephine, his brother, Allan (Nina)  and his sister Karen (Nick) and numerous nieces and nephews.

Graduating from George Mason University in 1976 with a Bachelors degree in Business, he went on to work for the Teamsters Union in Prudhoe Bay (the North Slope),  Alaska.   In 1977,  being an entrepreneur,  Craig and his best friend    started Century Tile, Inc.,  a ceramic tile and marble contracting business which is still thriving today.   He lived the American Dream.    As a “hobby”, he  also built five custom homes, two of these homes  are in Virginia and three are in Florida.  In 1999, he and his partners started a second business, known as  Century Foam, Inc., which is a floor protection business that is still thriving today.  He also had a passion for the stock market, researching,  buying,  and selling stocks and bonds in a self managed portfolio.

Craig was always willing to help his friends, family, employees, and colleagues.  Many of them have enjoyed great success and have said he had a major role in helping them attain that success. His infamous line in conversations was “Ya know it”.

Craig enjoyed Bass fishing, taking his sons on early morning trips to a secluded pond near Rappahannock, VA.  He and his friends would later in life, fish ponds in PGA National.  The goal was always to catch “Walter”….. the big one.  He also loved the game of golf.   Every Sunday he would have a friendly round with his good friends and bet a couple of bucks on “skins” matches.  Whoever won that week was the “sheriff”.    He loved working on his yard and projects around the house.  Somewhat of a perfectionist, he was nicknamed “Hazel” at work and at home.

He was a simple man without a lot of wants or needs in his life. He loved watching the wildlife in his backyard. He wasn’t into flashy cars, living large, or showing off.  He was more concerned with his own personal legacy and that his wife and children were well taken care of. He also loved his pets, the many Maine Coon cats, and different dogs that came and went, including his beloved dog “Tucker” a Wheaton terrier who passed away not that long ago.

A Celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, January 27th at the Abacoa Golf Club from 3-6.  Please RSVP to Stephanie or Danny. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in his honor to the American Cancer Society.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with the entire Boulter family.
Growing up next door, and next door again, it was a wonderful experience being able to hang out with the Boulter family and with Mr. Boulter leading the way. His enthusiasm for life was infectious and made him so much fun to be around. Thoughts of him will always make me smile.

Craig was a much loved cousin to his family in England. He was always lovingly warm hearted, generous, and extremely hospitable on all our holiday visits to the USA. Our shared fun filled family time together holds a wealth of happy memories that will be treasured forever.
We are thinking of you all at this saddest of times and send our heartfelt condolences to Stephanie, and all of the entire family for their great loss.

With our love,
Shirley, Graham and Family xxxx

Craig was the eldest of our two (at the time) American cousins, we had such fun with them when they first came to England and for a short time they actually lived with us. Craig was always considerate and always wanted to help make our American experience really good and fun even if sharing a kilo of crabs at Atlantic City! such happy times. We will miss you Craig.
Sending all our love and special prayers to Stephanie, Jo and all the family who we know will miss him dreadfully
All our love Christine, Les and family xxx
