Patrick James Beecham
Pat lost his year long battle with cancer on Friday October 27th, 2017 at home in Bennet. Pat was born to Bill and Marie (Spratt) Beecham on February 18th 1954 in Lincoln Ne. He loved spending time with family and friends, enjoyed watching football, Nascar, and old cowboy movies. Pat loved his grandchildren dearly and would have done anything for them. Pat liked nothing better than to sit on the deck and have a few drinks with friends talk about old times and watch the sun go down. He worked for Cushman for 25 years until they closed and ended his working career at ABC Pest Control as a pest control technician. He loved his customers and really enjoyed visiting with them.
