Paul David Beaudin, 92, of Taneytown, Md., formerly of Keene, passed away on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021, at home surrounded by his family.

Born Dec. 19, 1928, he was the son of the late Alberic Joseph Beaudin and Marie Eveline Helen (Aucoin) Beaudin. He was the beloved husband of the late Elizabeth Ann Beaudin, nee Savage.

He received his bachelor of science in civil engineering from Norwich University in 1951. Upon graduation, he went into the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953.
