LYNNFIELD — Charles T. Beaton, Sr., 83, of Lynnfield, passed away Feb. 23, 2018.  He was born May 7, 1934.

Please pray to give us the strength to cope with the loss, and to remember and celebrate the greatness, of Charles Beaton Sr.; his quiet support, his compassion for all whom he met, his undying devotion and love for his wife of 63 years, his dear Joanie, and his unconditional love for his six children; Charlie, Honey, John, Joseph, Marybeth, and Missy; which then extended to his ten grandchildren; Craig, Kim, Tracie, Jessie, Ami, Damian Jr., Gina, Alison, Charlie, and Cody. The love he bestowed on them can never be measured or replaced. Charlie also leaves behind the “outlaws,” Sam, Maureen, Damian, Kristen, and our newcomer, Jimmy, and then of course, little Audrey and dear “Aunt” Millie, all of whom he cherished and accepted as his own. Charlie held you all dear to his heart and loved you as part of his family.

Charlie was a good man who was honest, sincere, loving and kind. He was one of 21 children who grew up in a loving household, and was the last survivor of one of Lynn’s largest families. Charlie leaves behind many, many dear nieces and nephews, as well as a countless number of friends.

After attending St. Mary’s School, Charlie joined the Navy and served our country for eight years, later working as a construction superintendent until retirement from Perini Construction Company. Together with his wife, they gave their children the most fabulous life filled with love, hope, and happiness. Charles Beaton, we thank you. You leave a legacy of kindness, loyalty, love, and compassion. You could be imitated, but never be duplicated. We honor you with every fiber of our being. We love you, always and forever. Until we meet again, we know you will be always watching over us from Heaven.

His funeral was held from the McDonald Funeral Home, 19 Yale Ave., Wakefield on Wednesday, Feb. 28, followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Maria Goretti Church, 112 Chestnut St., Lynnfield.  Visitation for relatives and friends was held at the funeral home on Tuesday. Interment, Forest Hill Cemetery, Lynnfield.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Sacred Heart School Fund, 571 Boston St., Lynn, MA 01905 or to Little Sisters of St. Francis, Our Lady of the Angels Convent, 8 Barnard Way, P.O. Box 478, Danville, N.H. 03819-0478.
