I was saddened to hear of the passing of Uncle George. My sympathies go out to all of the family. I do have some great memories of when we were all kids and going to the farm and spending a couple of weeks with everyone. It was the highlight of my summer. Life gets in the way and we lose touch as we get older. It was nice seeing everyone again at his 100th birthday celebration.

I have many fond memories with grandpa. In my early childhood, he would buy me miniature tractor toys at Christmas time. I remember the moments he and my grandma lived on the farm. I used to go into the barn and shoot pigeons. One time, my dad Ron and I snuck 2 pigeon breasts in with grandma’s turkey while it was cooking. I also remember the summers he and grandma used to camp at Cameron’s Point. During my cycling runs, I would stop by and visit them. When he first moved St. Joseph’s, he seemed preoccupied with his coordinates; he couldn’t figure where north or east were. My son Joel showed him the compass on his phone and that seemed to calm him down. For his 100th birthday, Joel and Alexandra got him a compass. I hope he is at rest, having found his way to his forever home.

I don’t remember George although I may have met him when I was young. George was my father Bernard’s uncle (his father Leo’s brother). I offer my obsolescences and prayer for family that knew him.

George was the brother of my grandfather Joseph Albert of "Fred" Beaudette who passed away in 1982. While I was saddened to hear of Uncle George's passing, I was also awed by the long life he enjoyed on this earth.

While I did not see Uncle George in his later years, I do recall visiting with him on the many trips we made to Canada with my grandparents in the 1960s and 1970s when I was growing up in Massena.

He is the last of the offspring of Ferdinand and Laura. While they have all gone on to their final resting, the great Beaudette family continues to grow and be strong through their offspring. George and all the others will always be remembered and missed.

I've done a pretty complete family tree for the offspring of George's parents Ferdinand Beaudette (1876-1954) and and Laura Leroux (1875-1957). George is a descendant of the first Beaudette to arrive and settle in Canada - Jean Beaudette (1648-1714). Jean signed on as a "LaRochelle Recruit" and arrived in 1664 from Poitou-Charentes, France. He married Marie Grandin (1651-1715), a "Fille du Roi", in 1670 in the Basilique de Notre Dame in Quebec City. They ultimately settled on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River near "The Platon" of Lord Rene-Louis Chartier, now known as Lotbiniere, PQ.

I've attached a photo of George's father, Ferdinand that my grandparents gave to me before their passing.
