We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Driscoll Funeral Home & Cremation Service
WEST NEWBURY, MA - Steven A. Beaumier, 67, of West Newbury, died February 28, 2022, surrounded by his family after a short but brave battle with cancer.
Steve was born on January 27, 1955, in Susanville, CA. He graduated from Springfield Technical High School in 1972. He worked as a teacher with the Connecticut Department of Corrections where he spent his career teaching inmates carpentry. He also coached the swim and lacrosse teams for both his children and grandchildren and was the first to sign up for a school field trip.
Steve married his wife Vicky on November 7, 1981, and they made East Longmeadow home where they raised their 2 children before re-locating to the Newburyport, MA area to help raise their grandchildren and be closer to the ocean.
He was an avid outdoorsman but especially loved kayaking, being by the ocean on a cool day, and tasting craft beers, barefoot of course. Steve was known for his kind and gentle soul as well as his love of animals. Steve always needed a project and could be found tinkering around the house either fixing something or helping with the gardens.
Steve is survived by his wife Vicky; daughter Allison DeLena and her husband Nick of West Newbury and son Matthew Beaumier and his wife Christine of Sand Springs, OK. He leaves behind his four grandchildren Marissa, Julian, Zoe, and Tommy, whom he loved more than life itself. In addition, Steve leaves behind Sally Strniste, whom he considered another daughter; his best friend Sam the Golden Retriever, who never left his side through all the ups and downs of his illness.
In lieu of a wake and funeral, the family will be holding a celebration of life this Spring with family and friends. Memorials or donations may be made to the Home Health Foundation, 360 Merrimack Street, Lawrence, MA 01843. Arrangements by Driscoll Funeral Home, Haverhill. For guestbook, visit www.driscollcares.com
