Obituary for Ron A Beard

Ronald Alan Beard born July 22, 1947 in Shawnee, OK to Samuel Aaron Beard, Jr. and Floreine Aleece (Brundage) Beard. This was the same day his mother was born on, which he was very proud of. Ron lived in Shawnee until 1950, when he moved to Midwest City, OK, with his parents and younger brother Steve. His sister Vonne was born 10 years later. After graduating from Midwest City High School, Ron enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He served two tours of duty in Vietnam. He spoke fondly of the men he lost in battle lovingly named the "Foobi Frendi". He lived in Anaheim, CA for awhile after his discharge from the USMC, where he owned a michevious monkey named Sammy. He moved back to Midwest City where he married and had one son, Billy Aaron Beard. After his divorce, he obtained a teaching degree from UCO majoring in History. Ron taught high school history for awhile and enjoyed time being part of the Edmond Youth Council. He also married again and had two daughters Rebekah Allyn Beard-Goforth and Elizabeth Arielle Beard. Ron spent most of the time on the road with his daughters in tow taking long drives and going on adventures.

Ron went to be with the lord after a short fight with Cancer on April 26 and spent the last few days telling everyone who came into his room about his lord and savior Jesus Christ. He will forever see Mt. Scott first.

Preceded in death by his mother, Floreine; his father, Samuel; and his brother Stevann. Survived by his daughters Rebekah Beard-Goforth and Elizabeth Beard; Grandaughter Amber; Grandsons Aaron and Samuel; son-in-law Will Goforth; Son Billy Beard; sister Vonne Stephenson; neices Nicole, Tammie, Katie, and Laura; nephews Ron, Scott, Drew, and Joe; great-nephew Manny.
