Raymond “Ray” Reginald Beauvais, age 73, of Tempe, Arizona joined his heavenly Father on March 22, 2020 after fighting an intense battle against Pancreatic Cancer.

Ray was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts on December 12, 1946, to Doris Antoinette (Nolin) and Raymond Reginald Beauvais. In his earlier years, he obtained a diploma from New Bedford High School and later went on to graduate with an Associates from Phoenix College.

Ray was a dedicated public servant, and spent most of his life protecting others. From 1966 to 1972 he served in the in the United States Air Force as a Sergeant. After his honorable discharge from the Air Force, he continued to loyally protect his country as Police Officer and Detective for the Phoenix Police Department for over 38 years.

Throughout his life Ray loved making people laugh with his stories and contagious smile. Golfing on the green, fishing at the lake and spending time with his family were Ray’s happiest memories. Ray was preceded in death by his parents Doris and Raymond Beauvais and sister Mary Beauvais. He is survived by his wife Beverly Beauvais, sons Neil (Heather) and Stephen (Davida) Beauvais, step-daughter Myisha Richards, grand-daughters Emma and Riley Beauvais, and sister Rita Cummings.

Ray was a loving husband, father, step-father, grandfather and friend and he will truly be missed. Celebration of Life Services will be scheduled at a later date and time. Please check back for updates.

“I’ll always be there if you know where to look. By a quiet pond or a running brook. In a boat that’s anchored in a sheltered bay. Casting the shoreline at the break of day. Watching for deer as they come down to feed. Fishing for large mouth on the edge of the weed. On a grassy bank amid the birds and flowers. Under the summer sun or cool April showers. So don’t grieve for me, I am still around. If you know where to look, I can be found. Where fishermen talk about the catch of the day. I’ll be no more than a few steps away.”

I miss my buddy already, fishing is not going to be the same without you. I'll miss your jokes and laugh. If there is fishing in Heaven then I know you will be showing us all how it's done. We will meet up again in Heaven and we will fish and golf, and tell the same jokes over and over again. Love you pal, forever and ever your pal Kevin.

Oh, by the way I'm not done yet, let me get you a beer lol

Raymond was my cousin. We were very close as children attending the same schools and competing at basketball and baseball at local playgrounds. By the time he was in high school I was already in Vietnam and we kept in contact.
Time went by, we went on to separate lives. Still we never forgot those great childhood memories. He was a good friend as we found our way into adulthood.

I’ll always remember finding out my Sister had found a great man who loved her as much as she loved him! I was over joyed for them both.
I was also excited to learn my new brother-in-law had invited me to the annual “Lake Powell”
Fishing trip. We had a blast hanging with some great guys not to mention Ray and I fishing all day. At night we would hang around the campfire and stories would flow. I became Ray’s personal bartender and maybe I did over pour to keep my trips down to a minimum!
Ray and I would laugh about it each morning as he took aspirin! Great times and I hope to join his friends again for another trip.
Ray I will see you down the road on that Big Lake in the Heavens where we can hopefully fish together again!

Love you, Cody

For Beverly and the rest of the family, our hearts are so sad that you lost such a wonderful man. May it comfort you to know that his love and legacy lives on and he is living a vibrant life in Heaven with God.
Now sorrow overwhelms you so we pray God's comfort for you. I pray you will be aware of the loving arms of Jesus around you.
Love you, Uncle Joe and Aunt Ruth

We are going to miss our dear friend. He was one of the originals on our Lake Powell trip. Always making us laugh and had a story. When it came to fishing he knew his stuff.
I’ve known him about 50 years.
I love you ol’ buddy

Ray and I go all the way back to 1971 uniform patrol at the old Tower Plaza Station. Although he was on another shift, I remember what a great guy he was. Ray and I are also two of the original "Lake Powell gang" going back some 19 yrs or so. Some of my fondest memories of my friend are of us sitting around camp at Powell, drinking a cold beer, and listening to Ray tell "fish stories"
My heart is heavy at loosing you my old buddy, kinda like when Carley Anderson passed. Lake Powell will never be the same without you!!

"Was I talking to you"?? "Janeway, stand up and act professional!" LOL

RIP my old fishing friend, and see ya soon.
