Edgar Christian Beech (1920 – 2014):
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the death of our dearly beloved husband and father, Edgar Christian Beech, aged 94, who died peacefully at home on November 26th, 2014.
Edgar was born in Natal, British Columbia on July 29th, 1920. He spent his school years doing pretty much everything other than studying, but his quick wit and sharp intelligence carried him through a very active and fulfilling life.
After leaving school Edgar went to work in the local mines where, except for a period of soldiering during World War II, he continued until his retirement at the age of 61 years.
Edgar is survived by his wife Amelia and their three children, Adrienne (Norm), Linsey (David) and Randy (Pauline), six grandchildren (Andy, Brian, Joe, Kevin, Kim, and Michael), and two great grandchildren (Justin and Paris).
He was a huge shining star in all our lives and will be hugely missed by all who knew and loved him.
By his request there will be no service. A family gathering will occur this spring. If you wish to make a donation, please send it to the Elk Valley Senior’s Housing Society.
