PENDLETON — Frank M. Beuoy, 91, of Pendleton, died peacefully at home on April 15, 2014.
Frank was a World War II veteran serving in the U.S. Army from 1942-1945 as a Communications Specialist. He and Jean Wright were married June 21, 1943, and celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last summer.
Frank was a transportation manager, retiring in 1986 from General Tire in Wabash. He was a member of the First Methodist Church and the Lions Club in Marion for many years. In 1994, he was recognized as “Lion of the Year” for outstanding service, loyalty and devotion to Lionism. In 2000, Frank received the “Melvin Jones Fellow” award for dedicated humanitarian services from Lions Club International Foundation. For many years, Frank volunteered through the VITA program, preparing taxes for those who needed help. Following retirement, Frank and Jean spent many summers at North Webster Lake. Their children and grandchildren cherish the many wonderful memories of those summers.
Frank and Jean have lived with their son, Jerry, and his wife, Mary in Pendleton for the past eight years. Always with a twinkle in his eye, Frank loved fishing, boating and his family. Even through illness he never lost his wonderful sense of humor.
Frank is survived by his wife, Jean Beuoy; two sons, Alan (Jeannie) Beuoy and Jerry (Mary) Beuoy; a daughter, Sally (Dick) Keenan; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. Frank will be sadly missed by his family.
Private family graveside services will take place at the Union Cemetery in Eaton with Rev. Thomas Ream officiating.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Marion Lions Club, P.O. Box 503, Marion, IN 46952.
