CUAA New York Chapter Award
“I first met Bob nearly 20 years ago at the CANY alumni reception at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York. It was the first time I joined my fellow alumni in a Chapter activity. His leadership, friendship and manner encouraged me to stay involved. As current co-president of the chapter, I strive to emulate his example.”

Robert G. Beauregard
Known affectionally as "Poppy", "Beau" or "Bob", he was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on July 9, 1939, the youngest of four sons.
Bob attended Loyola College in Montreal, graduating in 1960 with B.A. in Economics. He was an all-around athlete with great drive and spirit, making him a natural and respected leader in college. He is a member of the Loyola Hall of Fame and was President of the Loyola College Alumni Association.
Bob was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 23 years old, yet lived a life filled with sports, optimism and hope. He was committed to many mission-oriented local and national non-profit organizations, including Freedom Waters, Boys and Girls Club, Boy Scouts of America, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
He was a frequent prankster, where no person (young, old, sick or healthy) was off limits in his attempts to raise spirits with laughter. He will be dearly missed.
