Obituary

Donald Irving Beauchamp
1930 - 2019

Naugatuck, CT Donald Irving Beauchamp, a great man, husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, departed from us on June 29, 2019. He was the loving husband of Aggie (Lokites) Beauchamp for 61 years.

Don was born in Union City, CT son of the late Irving and Ethel Beauchamp. To know Don was to love him, he was the most loving and giving man who was gifted with a sense of humor. Known for his story telling, especially the Ted Williams story. He was inducted into the Naugatuck Hall of Fame because of his commitment to the youth of Naugatuck. Don helped in developing and in building and rebuilding the Union City Baseball League fields. He also served as an umpire and coached the Cubs. Don was a referee for the Naugatuck Junior Football League; he was a Boy Scout leader and a member of the camping committee. Don received the Bronze Pelican for his contribution to scouting. Don served four years and eight months in the United States Navy on the USS Tarawa, served for eighteen years as a marshal in the Waterbury Courts and he was a lab technician at Uniroyal Chemical.

Don refereed for many years for the Western Connecticut Football Association, was an active member of St. Francis of Assisi School and Parish as a lector, member of the adult choir and past president of the parents club. Don was also a member of the Kollege Kapers, the Polish Falcons, Nest 65, the Naugatuck B.P.O. Elks, #967, the American Legion Post 17 and he was an active volunteer for the American Cancer Society. The word “NO” was not in Don’s vocabulary. Don was an avid sports historian; he enjoyed watching, collecting and researching stats on all sports. Don loved spending summer vacations on the Quonnie Beach in Charleston, RI and building castles in the sand and teaching his children and grandchildren how to body surf. He was like the pied piper, with many children on the beach who would come to him and ask “can we play with you today Mr. Donald?” He was so loved.

Don was predeceased by his son, Dr. Charles J. Beauchamp and is survived by his wife, Aggie Beauchamp; his daughter, Mary Farrar; 3 granddaughters; 4 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

The family extends their deepest appreciation to the physicians, nurses and chaplains at both St. Mary’s and St. Francis Hospitals.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday at 10:00am at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 318 Church Street, Naugatuck. Everyone is asked to please meet directly at church. Burial with military honors will follow in St. James Cemetery, Naugatuck. There are no calling hours and arrangements have been entrusted to the Buckmiller Thurston Mengacci Funeral Home, 82 Fairview Avenue, Naugatuck. In lieu of flowers and to honor Don’s memory, contributions can be made to the Office of Radio and Television (T.V. Mass), 15 Peach Orchard Road, Prospect, CT 06712.
