Bobby was an independent adventurer who enjoyed solitude and being immersed in nature. He explored the country with a backpack and lived off the grid for most of his life. He respected naturalist Henry David Thoreau and chose to pursue a similar lifestyle. 
Highly intelligent he always sought to expand his knowledge. An avid reader of books he favored topics such as philosophy, poetry, science, cartography, history, psychology, archaeology, astronomy and anything pertaining to the spirit of nature. He was fluent in French, had a passion for classical music and regularly practiced the art of contemplation and meditation. 
He was loved by many in the community of Berlin and was sought out for his intellectual conversation. He will be dearly missed and his words will forever be remembered by those who listened.

He is predeceased by his sister Lucille Roy; and his brothers, Lucien Caouette and Raymond Caouette. 
Life in the Woods
-Henry David Thoreau
I went to the woods because 
I wished to live deliberately ,
to front only the essential 
facts of life , and see if 
I could not learn what it
had to teach , and not , 
when I came to die , discover 
that I had not lived .
Please consider planting a tree in the forest in honor of his memory.
