Joe Beauregard of Marion passed away peacefully at home on June 18, 2021, after a long illness.
Joe was born in Boston and raised in Foxboro. He was the son of the late Joseph Beauregard and Edna (Carey).
Joe was a long-time, valued employee of FMGlobal, from which he was retired for many years. His work took him to all parts of North America and allowed him to make many loyal and loving friends who were a nationwide family to him.
Joe was a talented and energetic man, a skilled builder, gardener, cook, fisherman, and nurturer of all living things. His life experiences spanned logging with horse teams while helping his beloved grandparents on their farm in Maine, serving in the US Navy, renovating and managing a farmhouse in Vermont as a bed and breakfast, visiting Mayan ruins in Mexico, solo camping and fishing in outback Alaska, founding a fly tying association, and leading a Boy Scout troop for many years in North Attleboro. He was a great fan of Boston teams, and faithfully followed the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins and Celtics his entire life. Joe loved the outdoors, especially boating and fishing in southern Massachusetts and Cape Cod. He was a loyal and caring friend. He enjoyed cooking for others and would often say “food is love” and he would lavish his love on his friends and family.
Joe is survived by his wife Ann Ritchey, his sister Joan Parker of Plainville, MA, his brother John Beauregard of Alabama and his step sons Nathan Knowles and his wife, Michele Corey and Brad Knowles and his wife Marli and his grandchildren Jonathan, Joshua, Elsa, Audrey, and Walter, as well as numerous brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews and friends who were as dear as family to him.
There will be a private ceremony at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne, MA.
