Robert J. “Bob” Beaudoin, 78, of Palmyra, WI passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 6, 2022 at AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc, WI.
Bob was born on February 25, 1943 in Milwaukee, WI the son of Arthur and Margaret (Gauthier) Beaudoin. He grew up in Milwaukee and Waukesha and was a 1963 graduate of Waukesha South High School. After high school, Bob faithfully served his country during the Vietnam War as a member of the United States Air Force. After his service in Vietnam, he was also stationed in Spain, the Philippines, and Africa. On September 11, 1965, Bob was united in marriage to Cassandra Berlin at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Brookfield, WI. God blessed Bob and Cassie with two loving children, Mark and Holly. Bob worked as a Steamfitter for the majority of his working years and retired after a 33 year career. He took his work very seriously and almost never took a sick day. Bob took pride in providing for his family and making sure they had what they needed. Bob enjoyed the outdoors and made many memories hunting, fishing and trapping with his son and other family members. He also enjoyed the occasional trip to the casino to play the slot machines and won a few good sized jackpots over the years. Service to others was very important to Bob and he faithfully served in the local Thomas Holcomb Palmyra, Wisconsin Legion Post 304 for many years. He honored many United States veterans as a member of the military funeral honors team and also served at the legion hall for breakfasts and other events. Bob was a good man and he will be deeply missed by his loving family and friends.
He is survived by: his loving wife of 56 years, Cassandra Beaudoin of Palmyra, WI; his two children, Mark Beaudoin of Wind Lake, WI, and Holly (Paul) Timmons of Dagsboro, DE; his grandchildren, Jax, Olivia, and Juniper; his siblings, Laverne Long of Mineral Wells, TX, Helen (Gary) Peil of Merton, WI, and Debbie Raduka of Greenfield, WI; and his sister-in-law, Debbie Beaudoin. He is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, and his siblings, Arthur Beaudoin and William (Elaine) Beaudoin.
