Putnam – Donald Lionel LeBeau, 78, of School St, died Saturday, June 18, 2016. He was born in Putnam, CT, and was the son of Lionel and Simone (Bourque) LeBeau.
Mr. LeBeau was a machinist and sheet metal specialist for Kaman Aerospace Corporation for 40 years. He was a member of the Putnam Lodge of Elks and also served with them for many years. Don enjoyed golfing, playing pool, family cookouts, vacationing in Cape Cod, MA, Florida, and Texas with family and friends. Those who knew him can attest to his consummate “good guy” attitude towards everyone. He loved to dance, sing off key and generally entertain us with his good humor. He especially loved his family and all of his dogs; Rusty, Chucky, and Maggie.
