The Lennoxville community is mourning following the news that longtime volunteer firefighter and community barber Terry Beattie has died. A familiar face behind the grill on Friendship Day or serving up pie in one of the bays of the Lennoxville fire station at the annual Harvest Festival, Beattie was a consummate Lennoxville personality and a key player in the local community. “Terry was a wonderful guy,” said George Martel, who fought fires alongside Beattie for decades. “He was always a real helping hand for the association,” the retired firefighter added, speaking of the Lennoxville Volunteer Firefighters’ Association and the work they continue to do in the community. Martel said that he and Beattie spent a lot of time together through their work on the fire department, but shared that their friendship also included time spent in the barber’s chair.
