In the comfort of his home, surrounded by loved ones, Dad/ Papa made his way to the spirit world on October 23rd, 2020. He was predeceased by the love of his life Betty. His babies Richard and Melody. His parents Laurent and Alice. His siblings Lena, Clara, Mederise, Mary, Alma, Florence and Elmer. As well as his grandchildren Ian, Mandy, Curtis Jr, Devon and Kurtis. He leaves behind to mourn his passing, his sister Bernadette. His children Norma (Gerald), David, Walter Jr, Debbie (Ken), Clyde, Curtis (Colleen), Melinda (Edward), Jason and Tiffany (Nelson). He also leaves to mourn, his fostered children Lynette, Mandy, Phoebe, Crimson, Bobby and Desmond. As well as 40 grandchildren, 104 great grandchildren, 16 great-great grandchildren and numerous family and friends.
Dad/Papa enjoyed going out to visit family and to play slots. He would follow the powwow trail and enjoyed working on different things around the house and yard. He enjoyed listening to Hank Williams and collecting numerous pins and photos. He also loved to play his guitar and sing. Dad/Papa especially loved being with his children and grandchildren. He would take them sight seeing and berry picking all over the place. He would stomp his feet and clap his hands to make them dance or jig. You were rarely allowed to enter his bedroom unless you jigged first. Right until the day he left us, he was determined to do things on his own. He was our rock and we will miss him so much!
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Walter Kenneth Beaulieu Sr May 7 1931 October 23 2020 (age 89)..
