Patrick Henry Beauregard, 32, was born into eternal life while surrounded by his loving family on September 6, 2020 after a courageous, faith-filled, and awe-inspiring battle with colorectal cancer.

Patrick was born on February 9, 1988 in Portland, Maine to George and Kathleen (Simard) Beauregard. One of four children, Patrick grew up in Medfield, Massachusetts and was often referred to by his siblings as the “golden child.” He was a proud graduate of Thayer Academy in Braintree, Massachusetts where he forged long-lasting friendships, recently demonstrating his pride by serving on the Academy’s Alumni Association Board. Upon graduating Thayer Academy in 2007, Patrick attended Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island where he fostered further long-lasting friendships honored to this day, and met the love of his life, Amanda. He graduated with his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science in 2011.

Shortly after college graduation, Patrick decided to pursue a lifelong dream of his - serving in the military. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in April 2013 and served as an Intelligence Analyst until he was honorably discharged in July 2019. During his service, Patrick received commendations for exceptional leadership, initiative, loyalty, and dedication to duty. Patrick also led an accomplished career as the Assistant Vice President of Operations for Northeast Security.

His stage IV colorectal cancer diagnosis in September 2017 at the age of 29, a month after marrying his beloved wife Amanda, changed everything for Patrick. Throughout his cancer battle that included over 40 rounds of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and many surgeries and procedures, Patrick chose to remain positive, living by the mantra “Panda Power… Pray, Hope, Don’t Worry.” It is this positive attitude and will to live that allowed him to accomplish his final goal – meeting his son, Noah Patrick, on July 10, 2020. At the same time he fought his own disease with grace and fortitude, he also worked tirelessly to ensure that young-onset colorectal cancer received the attention of researchers, donors, and potentially at-risk individuals. He appeared on several news outlets, participated in numerous fundraising events, and met with representatives on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC to advocate for greater funds and awareness for prevention, research, treatment options, and cancer-related care. Through Patrick’s selfless and noble work, the fight against young-onset colorectal cancer will continue and will benefit others for years to come.

It’s nearly impossible to express just how great of a man Patrick Beauregard was. Caring, conscientious, unselfish, reliable, loyal, hilarious yet humble, quick-witted yet thoughtful, truly a man of family, God and country. He was the epitome of a good man and good person in every way. Patrick somehow always remained positive and maintained his great sense of humor until the very end. He will always be remembered with a beautiful smile on his face.

Patrick is survived by his loving wife, Amanda (Flood) Beauregard, and their son, Noah Patrick Beauregard; his parents, George and Kathleen (Simard) Beauregard; his brother Daniel Beauregard and his wife Melissa (Hart); his sister Kaylin (Beauregard) Nimblett and her husband Paul; his brother Brendan Beauregard; his parents-in-law Charles and Roselyn (Heath) Flood; and his sisters-in-law, Regan and Devin Flood. Patrick was the grandson of Henry and Patricia Simard and the late Rodolphe and Marguerite Beauregard, step-grandson of Shirley Beauregard, and also leaves numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Family and friends will honor and celebrate Patrick’s life by gathering at Nickerson Funeral Home, 87 Crowell Road, Chatham, Massachusetts on Thursday, September 10, 2020 from 3:00 PM-7:00 PM. Visitors are asked to follow the COVID-19 guidelines, which include face coverings, social distancing and wait times in line due to temporary limited capacity.

To all of the Beauregards,

My deepest heart felt condolences. I was Brendan’s third grade teacher and I vividly remember him telling stories of his older siblings, specifically his hero Pat. He stood out as a little guy with an amazing family of which he was SO proud beyond what was typical of a third grader. When I met his parents it was very obvious to me why Brendan felt like he hit the jackpot with his family. I’ve followed pat’s story and prayed hard for all of you. Pat was certainly a special guy. I am sure he made a difference to so many and he certainly made an impression on me. Sending all of you continued prayers, strength and peace in the days ahead... and a big hug to one of my favorite 3rd graders.

Dear George, Kathy and family,
I just learned of the sorrowful passing of Patrick from my son, Eric, and then read about his long and courageous fight with cancer.
I remember Patrick as a friend of Eric's and as a member of a few youth sports teams that I coached. He accompanied our family on at least one of our many trips to our condo in Lincoln, New Hampshire. I was always proud that Eric considered him a friend. He was a humorous and witty young person, respectful, well-behaved and most enjoyable company. Whenever I think of him, I always see his smile first.
Although no words that I can offer will serve to relieve the pain of your loss, I know that you will find solace in each other's love and in the shared memories of Patrick's life. May your pride in his accomplishments long outlive your sorrow and offer at least some additional comfort.
Sincerely, and with fond memories of your family,
Michael Thompson

Amanda, You are in my thoughts and prayers. I can't begin to fathom what you and your family have endured and the loss that you now face. I have come to believe that some people are just too incredible for this world and have to move on before we think it's fair. I know Pat was one of those. His legacy remains. xoxo
