Charles R. Beeman

Charles R. Beeman was born in Santa Anna, Texas on July 12, 1934 to his father James Beeman and his mother Mary Cecil Beeman. Charles went to be with our Lord on March 27, 2015.

Charles joined the U.S. Air Force in 1951. When he returned home, he went to West Texas and learned the drilling business. Charles went to Moab, Utah in the late 1950s and did exploration drilling for uranium companies. In 1970, he came to Wickenburg, Arizona to drill water wells. Charles was a freemason in Estancia, New Mexico and was a self employed man and a self made man. In his later years, he bought and sold drilling equipment and land. In his free time, he spent time with his family and he loved watching old westerns on T.V.

Charles was preceded in death by his beautiful wife Nila (Jones); and his son Rodney Beeman; his parents; two sisters; and two brothers. He is survived by his daughter Patricia Rodriguez of Chino Valley, Arizona; his son Chuck Beeman of New River, Arizona; his grandchildren, Josh, Jania, Dusty and Jennifer; and his eight great grandchildren; sister Betty of Brownwood, Texas; his brother Robert of Moab, Utah; and his brother Leo of Durango, Colorado.

A private family service will be held and his ashes spread in Moab, Utah.
