DILLON WADE BEAULIEU Dillon Wade Beaulieu (Misko Binesii-Red Thunderbird), 22, of Sandy Bay First Nation tragically left us into the spirit world on Monday, May 14, 2012. He was born March 14, 1990 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to George Beaulieu and Ernestine Spence. He attended Ebb and Flow School, Alonsa School and later Isaac Beaulieu Memorial School where he graduated from in 2010. He had planned on attending University of Manitoba. As a child there was never a dull moment with Dillon, he was an easy-going and brilliant child who loved to joke around. He had a great passion for music at a young age, he learned to play guitar and often played whether it was at home or out visiting family and friends. Dillon was also an advocate in his own right; he understood the implications of drug abuse. Dillon stood up for all first nation youth, he would open up on his own experiences and try to teach and help others, always advocating for what he knew was right. Dillon was more commonly known as Chillin with Dillon' as he was a DJ on Sandy Bay Radio, with his unique and charismatic character he made many friends along the way and his popularity grew. Dillon was a natural on the airwaves, he always spoke of the exclusive interviews he had done in his travels. More recently, one of his biggest highlights was his exclusive interview with National Chief Shawn Atleo. Dillon left a big impression and a place in his heart. Dillon was sadly predeceased by his mother Ernestine Spence in 2009. He is survived by his father George Beaulieu (Debralee) of Sandy Bay First Nation. He also leaves to mourn his younger brothers Mason (Kateri), Jordan and William. His sisters Charlotte (Earl), Vanessa (Alfred), Francine (Irvin), Tanya, Lisa (Joe), Julia (Craig), Candace (Allan), Jorja and Emmalee. He also leaves his grandparents Joseph and Sarah Beaulieu and Betty and Lloyd Houle all of Sandy Bay First Nation. Dillon also leaves to mourn numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and the many, many friends he had from far and wide. A tremendous thank-you to Sandy Bay Chief and Council and the many volunteers from Sandy Bay and Ebb and Flow First Nations. Included are the RCMP, Ebb and Flow Search and Rescue teams, Sandy Bay Fire Department, Lake Manitoba First Nation, Rolling River First Nation, and Grand Chief Derek Nepinak for his support along with the staff from Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs. All the women who provided food, support, encouragement and care for the search teams. Lastly, the undivided First Nation support that helped us bring Dillon home. We cannot express enough how much this meant to us. Wake Service will be held at the residence of George and Debralee Beaulieu on Saturday, May 26, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. in Sandy Bay First Nation.
