He was one of the best history teachers I have ever had! He could have chosen to teach at a larger university any where in the world and yet he ended up here in the little town of Kingston, Tn. within the county of Roane!

Beecher and Mary were special people and will be greatly missed. I met Beecher through Mary. Mary was the founder of the Southwest Point Chapter DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) and Beecher helped her make it a success.They were very active in the preservation of historic sites in Kingston, such as, Fort Southwest Point, Bethel Cemetery, Old Roane County Court House and the home of Kingston's Revolutionary War Patriot, Gideon Morgan, to name a few.
They were devoted to their children and grandchildren.
Beecher and Mary will not be forgotten.
Our thoughts and prayers go to their family.

Hard to say farewell to such a treasure... Prayers and thoughts to the family.. Always good words were spoken if his name was in the sentence. He helped mold so many of the young Roane County students. So glad I was one of them.
