LEWISTON: Willie M. Beauchesne "Wild Bill", 91, of Leeds and formerly of Auburn peacefully passed away on Saturday November 2, 2019 at St. Mary's Hospital in Lewiston surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Lewiston on August 20, 1928 a son of the late Alphege and Marie (Michaud) Beauchesne. He grew up in the Auburn area and attended local schools there. Later on, Willie met and eventually married the love of his life, Jeanne d'arc Pelletier in Lewiston at St. Mary's Church and they spent 68 wonderful years together. During that time, Willie worked in Freeport and Lewiston as a leather cutter in the shoe and purse industry. He lived a beautiful full life. He loved to fish, hunt and was a great entertainer in the Mountain Dews, a local band, featuring blue grass music. Willie was the life of the party with his story telling and jokes that would make you laugh until you cried. You could often find him enjoying his little piece of Heaven out on the back deck with a cigar in one hand and a drink in the other. He was also very passionate about spending quality time with his family. He will be deeply missed.

Willie is survived by his five children; Robert Beauchesne and his wife Susan, Joanne Doucette and her husband Roger, Jackie Poulin and her husband Dana, Larry Beauchesne and his wife Susan and Jane Kyllonen and her husband Ron. He also leaves behind his twelve grandchildren, twenty-five great grandchildren and one great-great grandson along with his sister, Doris Biron. He was predeceased by his loving wife Jeanne d'arc as well as his four brothers, Richard, Donald, Burt and Roland and a great-great grandson.
