He spent 30+ years as a concrete worker with Gopher Concrete and worked into his early 70's only retiring to care for his wife Theresa when she fell ill.

Beanie enjoyed woodworking and tinkering and lawn care. He enjoyed a good book and a party, didn't have to be a good party he just loved a party. His grandchildren meant the world to him and he made many happy memories with them that they will cherish for a lifetime.
