NEWMARKET — Wilfred (Tidoe) Beaulieu, a life long resident of Newmarket, died July 16, 2012 at Hyder Family Hospice House in Dover.

He was born May 14, 1940, the eldest son of Medard and Florence (Beauchesne) Beaulieu. After attending Newmarket schools, he went to work at Sam Smith Shoe. From there he moved to the Town of Newmarket where he was the Assistant Superintendent of Public Works for many years, followed by 23 years at Kingston-Warren Corporation, from which he retired in 2001.

Tidoe's greatest pride was the many years he spent as a member of the Newmarket Fire Department working his way up through the ranks starting as a junior forest fire ranger in 1955, culminating with serving as Fire Chief for 18 years, before his retirement in 1988.

He served on many town boards and committees, and was active in seacoast and state fire department related organizations. Tidoe loved spending time at his camp in Pittsburg, N.H., and enjoyed attending UNH athletic events.

Tidoe is survived by Susan, his wife of 28 years; brothers, Paul of Rumney and David of Newmarket; and several uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was predeceased by his parents and son, John.

A gathering for family and friends will be held on Friday, July 27, 2012 between 4 to 7 p.m. at 61 Elm Street in Newmarket.

Private burial will take place in Riverside Cemetery in Newmarket.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Newmarket Firefighter's Association, 4 Young Lane, Newmarket, N.H. 03857. All donations will help fund the annual Senior Citizen Christmas Dinner, sponsored by the Newmarket Firefighter's Association, an event Tidoe cherished.
