With sorrow in our hearts for the loss of our friend and loved one, Milt Beaman, we have joy that his journey is now complete, and he has entered the arms of Jesus Christ and the promise of eternal life.
Milt came into our world on December 26, 1937, and life would change forever. Born at Wesley Hospital in Wadena to the late Lester Arnold and Alice Miriam (Krueger) Beaman. Milt would spend his youth in Deer Creek and graduate from the Deer Creek High School in 1955. After high school he served his country honorably in the United States Army from March 1, 1956, to February 10, 1959. Milt would often make reference to his pride in the military and his service to our country, may we ever be grateful.
Milt spent his entire life living in the Deer Creek area and only moved to Bluffton a couple of years before his death. As Milt moved into adulthood, he farmed and he was employed in the road construction business. After his retirement from that industry, he spent his time on his farm caring for his land, trees, deer, turkey and of course his cats. Milt was not a person who would mince words and truly enjoyed a lively conversation. When not working at his farm, you would find him with a fishing pole in his hand or preparing a deer stand for the upcoming hunt. Milt was a true outdoorsman who loved to fish and hunt.
Milt passed away at his residence in Bluffton on May 8, 2022 at the age of 84. Preceding Milt on his journey were his parents, Lester and Alice and his brother Tom. Betty Beaman, Ted McGillivray, and Vicki (McGillivray) Cates.
Left behind to mourn his passing is his only child, Sheila (Chad) Palmer of Littleton, Colorado and two grandsons, Chase, and Caleb. Nephews Bruce, Kelly (Barbara), Wayne (Louise) Beaman and a mixture of great nephews and nieces. Jerry McGillivray, Thomas McGillivray and Tim McGillivray.
Although he is physically gone from our life he will forever be remembered in our heart and soul. As we move forward, we will relish the day when we will be with him again.
Rest in Peace Milt.
