Born in Graniteville, on Sept. 4, 1928, he was the son of the late Alphonse and Antoinette (Levesque) Beaudoin. Gilles attended the Holy Ghost Convent in Graniteville. After his schooling, he helped on the family farm. He later went to Connecticut where he was employed at a freight company. He served his country proudly in the U.S. Army from 1954 to 1956.
