Austin Beecher, Born on April 24th 1959, sixty years young. He was a gentle, caring, wonderful person, died on April 18th, 2020 at 12:26am at Staunton Memorial Hospital of heart failure. He was a loving husband of Eugenia "Jeanne" Kiffmeyer Beecher whom he cherished for thirty nine years. He was the father of two sons, Brandon and Jeremy Beecher who he adored. Also Brandon's partner Eric Larry, and Jeremy's wife Cat Schleicher. He was raised in McDougal, AR, one of eleven children. He then moved to the Bunker Hill area when he was eighteen. He worked at Olin Corporation as a machine adjuster for thirty two years. He loved living in the country and raising exotic birds and animals. He also enjoyed outdoor activities including time on his tractor. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Gertrude and Arvel Beecher, and his sister Judy Ellis.
