Charles R. “Chuck” Beauregard, Jr. 64 of Troy, passed on to eternal glory on July 29th after a courageous battle with the ravages of diabetes.
He was born to Rita Ann (Guyette) and Charles R. Beauregard, Sr., on July 23, 1952 at Eglin AFB in Florida.
He was a 1970 graduate of MRHS where he excelled in the sport of football.
On August 27, 1977, he married Christine M. Wright of Keene and together they raised two sons, Charles “Chuck” L. and Andrew.
Chuck loved the Lord with all his heart and endeavored to live a life committed to the glory of God.
Chuck loved and cherished his family. They were the apple of his eye and the loves of his heart.
Chuck was a leader. He managed the OK Fairbanks and the SuperPlace Supermarkets for more than 20 years.
He then held managerial positions at Monadnock Developmental Services and Chesco where he compassionately managed the care of the lives of many individuals with disabilities.
The love of, and his familiarity with, the Monadnock Region led him to pursue the field of Real Estate. He became a broker and his license hung with various area agencies including Coldwell Banker, Keller Williams and RH Thackston until his health forced him to finally hang his license as a referral agent with RH Thackston.
Chuck was a “people person” whose compassion for people was reflected in everything he did.
He was an active member of the Swanzey town government where he serve on the Board of Selectmen for 9 years. He also served on the towns Covered Bridge Committee, Zoning Board of Adjustments and the Browns Field Committee. He was president of the West Swanzey Athletic Association, a member of the Scarlet Marauders Drum & Bugle Corps and the American Legion Band.
Chuck loved all sports but his heart favored coaching, playing and umpiring softball. His goal when putting a softball team together, was to include as many “father- son” players on the roster as possible. Both of his sons played for him and with him. He umpired for the Men’s and Women’s Softball Leagues, Little Leagues and Babe Ruth Leagues until he was physically unable to continue umpiring.
In 2014 he was inducted to the Softball “Ball of Fame in honor of his significant contributions to the game. The monument bearing his name stands at Wheelock Park in Keene.
Chuck enjoyed camping with his family at Bayley’s Family Resort in Scarborough, Maine. That yearly trip was made every year for the last 40 years. He also enjoyed music and fishing and golfing with his sons and his dad.
He served as a deacon at Christian Life Fellowship Church in Swanzey where he has worshiped for 20 years. He was a singer on the Worship Team and was involved with various ministries.
Chuck sat on the Board of Directors for the Pregnancy Resource Center until his health made it necessary to resign his seat on the board.
Survivors include his wife of nearly 39 years, Christine, their two sons, Chuck and Andy, his parents, Rita & Charles R. Beauregard, Sr. of Swanzey, his siblings, Mark of Richmond, Mike and his wife, Micky, of Deltona, Florida and Denise Simard of Charleston, SC., his mother and father-in law, Lawrence & Margaret Wright of Keene, his in-laws, Tony and Peggy Wright & Ernie and Nicole Smalley of Marlborough, Rick & Kelly Wright and Jon & Karen Wright of Keene, and Michelle and Keith Maddox of Greenville, Ohio; two granddaughters, Alexis and Kai, and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins as well as his brothers and sisters of Christian Life Fellowship.
On Friday, July 29, his heavenly Father ended Chuck’s suffering, sickness and frailty that had rendered him unconscious for seven days. In the presence of his wife, sons and granddaughters, his soul left it’s earthly shell and the angels rejoiced as they carried this precious saint to his eternal reward in Heaven.
Chuck was a fighter; never a quitter. He fought a good fight, he finished his course and he kept the faith.
Services will be held at Christian Life Fellowship Church, 211 Whitcomb Road, Swanzey, NH at 6pm on Friday, August 5. A celebration of life fellowship will immediately follow the service.
In lieu of flowers, Chuck’s wishes were for donations to be made to either Christian Life Fellowship or the Pregnancy Resource Center.
