It is with heavy hearts that we give notice of the sudden death of Michael Beecher on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at his home in Tarpon Springs, FL. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle.
Mike was born on August 28, 1958 in Lima, Ohio to Richard and Jane Beecher. He attended St. Gerard’s Catholic School from Kindergarten to 8th grade and graduated from Lima Senior High School in 1976. He then joined the Army at age 17 and served until 1981 in the 101st Airborne Division as a helicopter mechanic while stationed in Korea.
Mike was a great provider for his family throughout his sales career and he worked long hours while mentoring anyone who asked him for help. At his time of death he worked at Creative Sign Designs and Lowes. He never complained and even though he worked seven days a week, he never missed Mass. He was a devoted Catholic and lived his life in service of the Lord. He always had a smile on his face and he never had a bad word to say about anyone. He loved to play golf, make hot sauce and make people laugh.
Mike is survived by his wife of 30 years Elaine, children Cody Beecher, Ashley (Neil) Merrick , Luke Beecher and three sisters Kathleen Beecher, Marsha Beecher and Shannon (Brad) Rettig.
Please keep us in your prayers as we learn to live without our precious Mike.
