Henry J Beaumier, 91, of Burlington, VT died Monday, February 17th at Birchwood Terrace surrounded by family.
Henry was born in Brooklyn, NY on January 13, 1929, son of Antonio F. and Alice M. (Weiner) Beaumier. Henry and his family moved to Westford, VT where they purchased and ran a family dairy farm. Following the sale of the farm in 1964, Henry, his brother Raymond, and their parents settled in Winooski VT. In 1966 Henry met Gloria G. Boisjoli of Winooski, VT and they were married in 1966.
Henry was an active member of St. Anne's Church in Milton, VT where he lived with Gloria until 2007. Henry and Gloria moved to Burlington to be closer to family and subsequently joined St. Mark's Church.
Following the family's sale of the farm, Henry went to work for G.S. Blodgett Company. After 17 years with the company, he retired at the age of 62 to enjoy what would lead to be nearly 30 years of retirement! A dedicated family man, good natured, great sense of humor, avid puzzle maker, and lover of sweets!
