While stationed in 1971 at what today is San Diego Naval Medical Center in Balboa Park, Mr. Beaudoin started Southwestern X-Ray Corp. in East San Diego.

He was diagnosed with cancer in May 1995 and donated his body for medical research.

A native of Boston, Mr. Beaudoin grew up in Chelsea, Mass., and joined the Navy in 1956. He served as a hospital corpsman, X-ray technician and biomedical equipment repairman before his discharge as a hospitalman first class in February 1975.

For more than 20 years, he was a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, attributing much of his success as a businessman to his affiliation with the organization.
