Henri Normand Beaulieu, Sr.

Henri Normand Beaulieu, Sr., of Calera, Alabama, passed away surrounded by his loving family on January 22nd, 2024, at the age of 84 years. He is survived by his loving wife, Johnie (Teany) Beaulieu, his son, Henri (Hank) Beaulieu, Jr. and wife, Donna Beaulieu, his grandson, Henri (Hal) Beaulieu, III, and wife, Natalie Beaulieu, and his great-grandson, Henri Beaulieu, IV, all of Calera.  He is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Judy and Rick Vensas, of Georgia, as well as a great many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and -nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Mederic Beaulieu, and his brother, George Beaulieu.

Born on September 25th, 1939, in Webster, Massachusetts, Henri moved to Miami, Florida, in his youth and settled in Alabama 30 years ago where he retired. He leaves behind a legacy of love, dedication, and craftsmanship.

A skilled electrician and electrical foreman by trade, Henri was not only excellent in his profession but was deeply respected for his work ethic and talent. He was also a skilled carpenter, plumber, and homebuilder, and hand-drew blueprints for his grandson’s house and the other homes he built. His passion for his craft was evident in everything he did, but his family was the most important thing in this life.

Henri was a beloved husband to his wife of 65 years, a devoted father to his son, a beloved father-in-law, grandfather, grandfather-in-law, and a beloved great-grandfather to little Henri,  the fourth bearer of the family name. His love, dedication, wisdom, and unwavering support will be profoundly missed by all who knew and loved him.

His legacy will continue to live on through the family and homes he built, as well as the many lives he touched. Henri was truly loved, loving, and will be dearly missed. 

There will be no service, but the family deeply appreciates everyone’s thoughts and prayers.

    Henri Sr. was a good and honorable man. He was a family man that loved his entire family and relatives. I had the honor to attend a family meal and it was obvious the love everyone had for him. He will be missed.

    Just heard about Henri’s passing today. Very sad. Henri was a good man, and also very smart and quite funny. I knew him my entire life, since we lived next door to the Beaulieus in Miami. My thoughts and prayers to Tina, but also Hank and the rest of the family.
