Beau Brandon Carbonneau

April 29, 1976 - June 23, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that on Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020, Beau Brandon Carbonneau, loving husband, son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. He was 44 years old.

As a skilled carpenter, craftsman and artist, Beau made our lives more beautiful. Those who were close to him probably live, or have lived, in a home that Beau helped renovate or remodel, or have furniture that he handcrafted specially for them. As an accomplished musician, Beau made our lives sound better, and he played and performed in several bands throughout his life.

Recently, Beau was passionately writing and recording music on his own and was always up for a jam session with his friends and family. Most importantly, through his deep passion for family and friends, Beau made our lives feel better. Whether it was a stranger at the hardware store, a family member, or a friend he knew for years, Beau had an uncanny way of making people feel at ease, and his personality would always lighten the mood or light up a room. Beau was known for his big heart and would do anything for those he cared about. He will be missed tremendously.

Beau is survived by his wife Jenny Rebholz, his parents Shelley and Steven Schmitt and Walter Carbonneau and Denise Kovic, his siblings Bart and Kim Carbonneau, Leah and David Sheridan, Tiffany Carbonneau and Brian Harper, Amy and Adam Compton, Kristina and Nick Petrocelli, and Ryan Carbonneau, his nieces and nephews Elijah, Keira, Jackson, Logan, Nicholas (Bear), and Lola, so many of his close friends that Beau considered family, and Jenny and Beau’s beloved dogs Stella and Dexter.

Visitation will be held 1:00 P.M. until 3:00 P.M Sunday, August 9, 2020 at Moss Family Funeral Home, 209 South Batavia Avenue Batavia, IL. An invitation only service will begin at 3:00 PM.

The family wishes that memorial donations be made to either the Garden Center Services, a multi-program agency serving adults with disabilities, or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research (links below). Beau’s grandmother was a founder of the Garden Center, and his Aunt Tina is a recipient of their services. Beau lived with type 1 diabetes for most of his adult life.
