Richard “Dick” was born September 29, 1927 in Chicago, IL to Ellsworth J. and Geraldine (Fidlerova) Beaudette. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy. Dick worked for many years at City Plumbing as a heating and air conditioning technician and was a proud member of the Union – Local 357.

For the past 32 years, you could find Dick most mornings at Thornton’s Downtown Café in St. Joseph where he enjoyed his social time with friends. He will be missed by many.

This Month we lost a wonderful human being. The memories I have of Dick are too numerous to mention. Those of his friends at City Plumbing were always the team he loved to work with, During my time at Whirlpool, I had many many dealings with his expertise and dedication to his work. May the peace of the Lord be with him and his family during this most difficult time....
