South Texas Council Mourns Loss of John Beauregard

A Message from Christie Beauregard

Dear Friends,
On behalf of John Michael, Matthew and our family, I would like to thank each of you for attending the Rosary for John last night and today’s funeral mass. Words cannot express the comfort given with your special memories of John, your prayers and support.  Seeing an overflowing church filled with such a strong display of uniforms will be a memory that I will always cherish. …
As friends and family have returned home and we prepare to travel to Lubbock in the morning, I wanted to thank each of you again for allowing John to live his dream and encourage each of you to continue that dream through your efforts in strengthening and growing the Scouting program in South Texas. Each of you will always hold a fond place in our hearts.
With love,
Christie, John Michael and Matthew

Letter from the South Texas Council

It is with great sadness that the South Texas Council reports the death of Scout Executive and CEO John Beauregard. Beauregard was involved in a fatal automobile collision on FM 665 near Driscoll, TX while driving home from Karankawa Lodge’s December Fellowship on December 1 at Camp Huisache in Laredo, TX.

Beauregard, 48, is survived by his wife, Christie, and two children, John-Michael and Matthew.  He accepted the position of executive director in 2008, but was involved in Scouting all of his life. He leaves behind a great legacy of service and sacrifice that has impacted tens of thousands of youth and families.  His contributions include improving membership retention and growth rates, creating more financial stability in council operating budgets, and most notably establishing a 2.4 million dollar capital improvement campaign at Camp Karankawa.

Martin Sepulveda, assistant Scout executive, will manage council operations until the council’s board of directors and Boy Scouts of America officials determine Beauregard’s successor.

“The South Texas Council is deeply saddened by the tragic death of John Beauregard. Our thoughts and prayers are with John’s family during this difficult time. The entire Scouting community mourns with them today,” Sepulveda said.

The South Texas Council, headquartered in Corpus Christi, is the local organization of the Boy Scouts of America. The council serves more than 5,500 youth in 17 counties between Laredo, TX and Ganado, TX.
