“Smoke” Mark A. Routier, 64, of Springfield, MA and
Thornville, died suddenly February 12, 2017, at his home in Thornville of an apparent heart attack.
Smoke was born March 28, 1952, in Springfield, MA. He was a proud Air Force Vietnam era veteran, and owned his own business for over 40 years. He was the most kind, compassionate and helpful husband, brother, uncle, friend and neighbor. He walked and talked and lived as a true Native American. We will miss his spirit and blessings.
He is survived by his wife of 17 years, Annie; one brother, Maurice “Moe” Routier of Springfield, MA; several nieces and nephews; and his Thornville family.
