Aaron W. Beer
December 17, 1951 ‒ May 21, 2019
MANSFIELD: In many ways Aaron Beer was your “typical” man. He’d rather be outside working than inside sitting. He may have been a little stubborn and often spoke his mind. Those qualities are typical. However, what was unique about Aaron was his uncanny ability to fix nearly any kind of tool or piece of construction equipment. His hardworking nature, and more important was his willingness to help family and friends. Aaron W. Beer, 67, of Mansfield died tragically, Tuesday May 21, 2019 at his home property, following a tragic accident while trimming a fallen tree.
Born December 17, 1951 in Mansfield, to Dean and Francis (Moyer) Beer, Aaron was raised in the country and appreciated the outdoors. From a young age, Aaron learned the value of hard work. He graduated from Madison High School in 1970.
Aaron worked for Westinghouse and more recently Hyundai Ideal Electric.
He currently lived on the same property that he was raised as a child; the same woods and fields where he established his work ethic. Aaron was always mowing, trimming, or cutting wood. He just couldn’t sit still. He kept his tools in pristine condition and was his own mechanic. He appreciated home cooked meals and desserts baked from scratch.
Although Aaron’s death is certainly tragic, he died doing what he loved, on the land he called home.
He is survived by his wife Lisa (Pursley) Beer of Mansfield; son Nathan Beer of Mansfield; sister Deanna (Robert) Whittemire of Treadway, Tennessee; sister-in-law Terry Beer of Mansfield; brother-in-law Jack Jr. (Vickie) Pursley, sisters-in-law Cathy (Garry) Dishong, Kimberly Phillips, and Kristina Kuhn and Terry Haney of Shelby; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Along with his parents he was preceded in death by his brother Frederick W. Beer, III.
In honoring Aaron’s request, there will not be any public services. The Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home is assisting the family with cremation services.
