Charles Richard Beever
November 24, 1941 ‒ April 04, 2021
Mount Vernon, Ohio
Charles Richard Beever 79, of Mount Vernon passed away on Sunday, April 4, 2021 at Knox Community Hospital surrounded by his loved ones. He was born on November 24, 1941 in Mount Vernon to the late Charles C. and Geneva M. (Butler) Beever.
Charles was a 1959 graduate of Homer High School. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corp where he proudly served his country for 6 years. He also took pride working as a Tool and Die Maker for Ariel Corporation in Mount Vernon, Ohio retiring in 2002 after nearly 3o years. Charles was quite the entrepreneur and always stayed busy. He also owned Ohio Sanitation and Disposal Company. Charles and his wife Dolores owned and operated Colonial Antiques for 45 years. After his retirement, he managed BRB Excavating with his son, Benjamin Beever.
Charles took great pride in his military service and was most honored to serve his country as a Marine. Semper Fi! He treasured his restored 32 Ford American Graffiti yellow hot rod and enjoyed going to car shows and cruising around town, maybe doing a burnout or two… But above all, Charles enjoyed spending time with his family and friends laughing and telling stories. No one told a story that could generate greater laughter than Charles!
Charles is survived by his beloved wife Dolores (Hysong) Beever. His children, sons Benjamin (Abby) Beever and Ronald DuMont of Mount Vernon, daughters Charlene (Joe) Clipse of Okatie, SC, Nanette DuMont of Mount Vernon, Georganna Throm, Elmhurst, IL, and Kelly Kittler. A sister, Sherry (Thurman) Treadway of Utica and numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, Charles was preceded in death by a brother, Larry A. Beever.
It was Charles’ wish that his estate be used for others rather than himself, therefore no funeral services will be held. The family welcomes friends to a military graveside service, provided by the Knox County Joint Veteran’s Council, that will take place at Homer Cemetery on Saturday, April 10, 2021 beginning at 11AM.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to the Gary Sinise Foundation www.garysinisefoundation.org
