Robert (Bob) Alfred Beech 8/31/1925-2/20/2023
Do not mourn for me, but celebrate the life I have lived for 97 ½ years: Born in Springfield, Minnesota on August 31, 1925. Now I get to meet my maker.
I have no more pain in my legs, toes, hips, heart, ears, fingers, hands, eyes, joints and bones. I will see all those who have gone before me.
I had 4 children, Su, Jim, Barb and Tad ; 2 step-children, Christopher and Sarah and 2 loving wives, Lois and Vicki.
I worked in my parent’s electrical shop in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, until I went into the Navy (Air Core), where I proudly served my country in WWII. I ran a successful plastic company, T.O. Plastics, in Minneapolis and I was mayor of Clearwater, Minnesota.
I have survived most of my fiends and relatives, I got to “big game” hunt, which I loved to do and I loved God thru my churches and Christian faith.
Don’t mourn for me, but celebrate: Memorial Party later in August, date to be announced.
