    Mr. Beachum was my principal at Grafton Bethel in York County. He was a knowledge, caring, and always accessible principal. He was a true educator of students and staff. It was a joy to work with him.

    Prayers for the family. He always had such interesting stories to tell. I especially loved his dog stories.

    Dear Mrs Beachum and Kim, I was so shocked to hear of Mr Beachum's passing in the paper. You have always been there for our visits and a wonderful connection to the past. I loved him very much. He was such a fine gentleman. I am truly sad and wish peace for you and Kim. A beautiful family.
