Richard Franklin Beacham obituary

Tooele Transcript Bulletin Online Edition
May 25, 1999

Richard Beacham

Richard Franklin Beacham, of Grantsville, died May 23, 1999 at home after completing a full life of love and dedication to his family.

Richard was born October 10, 1921 in Stockton, to Franklin R. and Ruth Quinn Beacham. He married Elaine Jefferies, the love of his life, on June 11, 1941 in the Salt Lake Temple. Richard and Elaine raised their children, Farrell, Ernie and Pat in Grantsville.

He worked many years at the Tooele Army Depot as a firefighter. He also worked at Solar and American Salt plants. He had been a member of the Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department and held many various church positions throughout his lifetime.

Richard had many friends and everyone who knew him will agree he was a friendly and fun-loving man, but the phrase that is most attributed to him is "hard working."

Richard was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, one sister and his son, Farrell. He is survived by his wife, of nearly fifty-eight years, Elaine; his son, Ernest (Sharon) Beacham of Grantsville; daughter Pat (David) Peabody of Albuquerque, N.M.; two sisters, Violet Yates, Magna and Florence Fordham, Bicknell, Utah; 13 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; other brothers and sisters-in-law; and nieces and nephews who loved him dearly and will miss him greatly.

Funeral services for Richard will be held Thursday, May 27, 1999 at 1 p.m. in the Grantsville West Stake Center, 115 E. Cherry St. Friends may call at Tate Mortuary in Tooele on Wednesday, May 26 from 6-8 p.m. and Thursday, May 27 at the church one hour prior to the services.

Internment will be in the Grantsville City Cemetery.
