Michael Beech, 1983-2019


Graveside service for Michael Beech, 35, of Soper, Okla. was held at 2 p.m. Thursday, March 21, 2019 at Yantis City Cemetery with Pastor Jeremy Durig officiating. He was laid to rest next to his grandfather, William G. Beech.

Michael Paul Beech was born in Butler, Penn. to William and Roberta Beech. He was raised in the Quitman area. He later moved to Oklahoma and had worked in construction. Michael was a very hard working young man who always put his family’s needs and feelings first. He always made sure his children knew they were dearly loved and were special in life in each one’s own way.

He was the kind of son that would make sure his parents, aunts, uncles, and especially his grandparents were a major part and influence in his children’s lives. His grandfather, “Pops,” was the most positive person in his life and was the one who guided Mike into the loving, generous father he became.

Michael passed away March 3, 2019 in Oklahoma.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, William G. Beech, and grandparents, Bill and Norrie.

Left to cherish his memory is his father, William J. Beech Sr. of Quitman; mother, Roberta Beech of Pittsburg, Penn.; five children, Kenton Dale, Nathan, William Thomas, Hayden and Allison; grandmothers, Norma Beech of Quitman and Sue Soberon of Halfway, Ore.; two brothers, Kyle Anthony Beech of Mineola and William Jonathan Beech Jr. of Arizona; uncles, George Beech and Shannon Beech; and several nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members.
