Obituary: Frederick A. Beebe

Frederick A. Beebe, at 63

Frederick A. Beebe, of Hull and Charlestown, departed this life on April 17, at age 63.

Mr. Beebe brought a smile to everyone he met. He was gentle and strong, a natural provider and a selfless man. Affectionately called Ricky by his family and friends, he adored his wife Paulette and daughter Tarrah, who was the twinkle in his eye. He made sure to let everyone know how much he cared about them, and was a vessel through which God spread joy and compassion. 

Mr. Beebe was a CPA with a bachelor's degree from Bentley College and an MBA from Boston University. He served multiple roles at the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, most recently as director of audit at the School Building Authority and also as deputy commissioner of the Department of Revenue's Audit Division. He was a mentor to so many in his profession and in life. 

Mr. Beebe celebrated his faith as a Eucharistic minister, teacher, and youth group leader at St Ann's in Hull, and as a grand knight with the Hull chapter of the Knights of Columbus. In his spare time, you could find him up in New Hampshire, taking a sunset cruise on his pontoon boat, “Livin' Lahhge.” To Mr. Beebe, “living large” was cherishing the little things: sending phone hugs, playing Santa Claus, taking care of his loved ones. He was the life of the party, even if that meant doing the cooking and cleaning behind the scenes. 

Mr. Beebe will be greatly missed by all who knew him, but his memory will bring a smile to the faces of all whose lives he touched.

Loving son of Asa Frederick and Sylvia Beebe of Somerville; beloved husband of Paulette Lavoie-Beebe of Hull; devoted father of Tarrah Beebe of Los Angeles; cherished brother of Julia Hurley and her husband, Jerry, of Tampa, Frank Beebe and his wife, Terri, of Medford, Jimmy Beebe and his wife, Elizabeth, of Suwanee, GA, and Michael Beebe of Las Vegas, NV. Mr. Beebe also was the loving nephew of Dolores Wellman, Yvonne Sannicandro, and Virginia Wojcieck; and also leaves many extended family members.

Visiting hours will be held Friday, 3-7 p.m., in the McDonald Keohane Funeral Home, 809 Main St., South Weymouth. A funeral Mass will be held Saturday at St. Ann’s Church, Hull at 10 a.m. Burial will follow, at Hull Village Cemetery.
