ST. DAVID – Albert J. Beaulieu, 81, passed away unexpectedly as a result of a tragic accident July 12, 2011, in St. David. He was born Aug. 16, 1929, in St. David, son of the late Vital and Madeline (Cyr) Beaulieu. He was the youngest of 11 children.

He was an Army veteran, serving in the Korean War. He worked at Fraser Papers for 46 years until his retirement in 1991. He was a man of great wisdom and faith, who had an outstanding positive attitude.

He loved to joke around and would do anything to make someone laugh. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends. His devotion to his faith is a reflection of the life he lived. Albert was a man who truly lived for others. He dedicated his life to his family, which he was so proud of. He required nothing for himself; it was always for the kids. His greatest pleasure was spending time with his family. He enjoyed being outdoors, working on his land and playing Skip-Bo.

He is survived by his seven children, Jim Beaulieu and his wife, Diane, of Manchester, Conn., Bob Beaulieu and his wife, Aleisha, of Coventry, Conn., Ann Beaulieu of Fort Kent, Luke Beaulieu and his wife, Michelle, of St. David, Louise Murphy and her husband, Joseph, of Coventry, Conn., Jane Wooley and her husband, Ronnie, of Moncks Corner, S.C., and Lynn Beaulieu of St. David; 12 grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren; one sister, Rita Coppola of Pittsfield, Mass.; several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 45 years, Rita (Plourde) Beaulieu; six sisters, Marie Cyr, Elaine Ciccarelli, Matty Cyr, Laurette Beaulieu, Dolphine Beaulieu and Elizabeth Beaulieu; and three brothers, George, Wilfred and Gerard J.
