Peter Beauchamp

Beauchamp-It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father and brother Peter Andrew Beauchamp on September 27, 2023 at the age of 67. Much loved Father to Marcel Beauchamp (Stephanie) of Seattle, Washington and Molly Beauchamp (Austin) of London, Ontario. Predeceased by parents Marcel (1989) and Constance (2017). Brother to Paul (Lisa), Stephen, John and Maria. “Uncle Pete” to Tara, Karli, Kayla and Grace. Devoted friend to many across the United States and Canada including Darla Uran of Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Pete had many passions, including his career as an entrepreneur in which he followed in the footsteps of his father Marcel. He was dedicated to the upkeep of the many homes he lived in, the lawns they sat on, and the toys he owned ranging from golf carts, to Boston Whalers and Ocean Yachts. Pete lived out his dream settling in Fort Myers Beach, Florida in his retirement where he made many friends and continued his passions. While he retired in Florida, he remained a Detroit Lions fan and was hoping that 2023 was finally the start of something new for the team. Pete’s legacy lives on through both his children and the many memorable one liners that he’d drop on the golf course or while having a drink. Please join us in a Celebration of Life for Peter on Wednesday October 4th from 3 to 5 pm at the St. Clair Parkway Golf Course Clubhouse. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at Arrangements entrusted to Knight Funeral Home, 588 St. Clair Parkway, Corunna.

    It’s with heavy heart to have lost a dear friend. We’ve known each other since teenagers and had many a good time at different stages of our life. I’ve met people at my home in St Croix Virgin Islands that would say. Oh Segway Pete. We know him. He had a gift for gab and always loved hearing about your life. An entrepreneur in so many ways. I’ll
    Miss you Pete. Glad you stopped by Stag Island this summer for one last visit.

    So sad to hear this news , and the rest of the Curran family are as well. I remember Pete as the nicest guy, full of energy and fun. His parents and mine were long time friends during those memorable days in Corunna. Our sincere condolences to Marcel and Molly and to the rest of the family.

  3. Pete was a friend, co-worker, and mentor. So sorry to hear of his passing but I’m a better man for knowing him.

    Miss you, buddy!

    We are so sad to hear this…our TOP of the Hill visits were enjoyed this summer and he was SO excited in moving to Thompson Gardens. He will be missed…we were to stop by and see his place and have a drink….Too young….

  5. With a heavy heart, I’m saddened by this news. I met Pete in 2010 at Time Square in Fort Myers Beach. We became fast friends & eventually roommates. We spent many happy hours and holidays together throughout the years. Pete was known to open his doors to friends and neighbors to gather for a feast or unwind on the lani, he truly enjoyed entertaining.
    He passed the day before the one year anniversary of the devastating hurricane Ian that changed our lives. I cherish our time spent together and Miss him deeply. Im proud to have called him my best friend. My condolences to Marcel, Molly and the family. 🙏 prayers for your healing in this difficult time. With Love, Darla

  6. Man. This is tough. So much to say about Pete. Segway Pete as he is known at the beach by so many but he called himself “Igor, your man in Hong Kong” to me so often lol. This is referring to our dealings with everything from renters to scooters and just about anything we had to mess with in Ft Myers. He would constantly be handling misc things for me if I wasn’t there hence that term. It was certainly endearing. I guess I should explain. My family had a place a few doors down from Pete and we considered him part of that family as we were down there so much. We spent a huge part of our time with Pete and we just loved spending time together. We were close. He often said he could fit his real friends in a phone booth and we considered each other just that. My wife Tina just adored Pete ( she always called him Peter with an English accent) and he referred to her as Miss America. With good reason but he knew it would make her smile and he was very sincere about it. Good Lord, I really could write a book about just the past year together. Apart.
    So the hurricane hits and you guys must know must of the story. Was both lose everything there. I also had a renter on the same block and we would cackle about the insanity of some of our observations about the goings on of everything between our two places. Too funny. It will forever be impossible not to smile hearing Pete’s play by play and his hilarious take on it all. Ok so back to it, sorry. So the hurricane comes and shortly after Pete comes directly to stay with us in Indiana. He shows up still a mess from everything like a ragamuffin with everything he owned in a burlap Kroger bag. His phone, laptop, and his trusty partner Alexa. That’s it. Heartbreaking but he explained the harrowing story (for the next book) and how truly grateful he was to be alive. And we were also very grateful for that. Ironically, Tina and I were supposed to fly down the day of the whole disaster to hang with him but obviously not going to happen. So anyway, he is wearing shorts, an old tee shirt and these Hey Dude beach shoes that are two sizes too big with the security thing still on em. Sup with that Pete??! Well my flip flops got stuck in the muck and there were all these destroyed tourist shops with their stuff all over the beach and these matched so……
    On the plane he apparently got some looks lol. We were so happy he had decided to come and stay with us until he could make any kind of plan and I think he liked being here. It felt good to share my family and our home with him and it was a sad but important time in our lives together. He also loved my son, Easton and of course cherished his Marce and we had countless conversations about each of them. So this is how Pete always has been as he picks us up from the airport …..”How’s Easton and his new wife? What’s he doing these days? and on and on with questions about loved ones that kinda shows his thoughtful and caring self. Not everybody does that, Pete always has been super considerate that way. He would go on and on about Marce and we just loved hearing the pride and excitement in his voice. Then it was Molly this and Molly that and again was a pleasure to see him smile while speaking of his true loves! Man this is hard….
    I realize that I am just rambling but think Pete would rather I babble with intent to show love and maybe an insight into how important he is to our family than to just , well state the obvious. I certainly could actually write a book about adventures and life with this kind, intelligent, funny, ridiculous, quirky, thoughtful, and sometimes irritating as hell super loved man.
    Our conversations about Christ and our faith were also regular and we would both say dude we are blessed! Yes we are. We will miss you terribly Pete but the stories will live on for sure.
    My name is Bobby Thomas and my family can say with pride that we will always be friends and fans of Pete Beauchamp
