After graduating from Tulane University in New Orleans, he served two years in the Air Force. He was employed by IBM for 34 years before he retired in 1990 to Las Vegas.

PawPaw by Kelli Goede

If you knew him, you loved him...those are the words that pop into my head when I think about my grandfather, Carl Beard. He was the true Patriarch of our family, the life of our party. But, what resounds in my head is the memory of the kind of husband he was to my grandmother. I remember a story he told me once about how my grandmother wanted to go to a fancy restaurant called "The Blue Room" and they just didn't have the money. Well, he told her they would go and that day he went out and made enough sales to cover the cost of taking her there. If she wanted it, he tried as hard as he could to make it happen. If she was going out, he would take her car and make sure it had enough gas. He treated her like a queen for over 60 years, there aren't many people who can say that of their husbands.

Family was of utmost importance to him and he was the glue that held everyone together. It speaks volumes that his children and their families still get together regularly even though many are hundreds of miles from each other. He was loved by his children and they were fortunate to have had him as their dad. He was the kind of dad that was always present and involved, even when his children had children of their own. I can remember him coming to visit and knowing that meant we would be going to the dentist or the Dr., he would fill in the gaps any way he could.

The sucker man, the ice cream man...there was always some kind of treat when Pawpaw was around. He loved making us smile and he knew just what to do to accomplish his goal. There were "biscuits-McPawPaw" on Saturday mornings when we lived around the corner and Hamburgers McPawPaw when we got together for a BBQ. When I think about this, I realize he lived exactly how we should...he lived to serve and love others and he did it well.

Our family has lost a wonderful man, family gatherings will never be the same without him. The best way I can think to honor his memory is to do what he did best...he lived out Matthew 22:37-39 "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: 'Love your neighbor as yourself".

Sorry for loss Dave and condolences to your family. Good ol' Dad will always be there for you, and your family, in all your memories when and as you need him to be there. Great man
I'm sure that after all he had to go through reaching the finish line, that he's now in a better more peaceful place, and I can only hope that I can get to his ripe old age. He lived a long life.
Not the most religious guy on the planet, but God will take care of him from here on out. I'm told that he ordered up a big leather recliner and big screen if my sources serve me right.
Take care Beard family..

My PawPaw was very special to me. He had a heart of gold, a contagious smile, and such a lovable demeanor. I will never forget his Birthday sarenations, and his "PawPaw jokes" as my dad and I always called them. I never understood them, but his laugh was so catching I couldn't help but laugh with him. I will miss his PawPaw breakfast he always made for everyone when we visited. One of my favorite memories will be cruising around Vegas with him in his big yellow Cadillac. Visits with PawPaw were never long enough, but now I know he's with me all the time.
I love you very much PawPaw. Thank you for all you have done for me. It's not goodbye, it's I'll see you later.

After 51 years I can't remember one day my dad has not been there for me. Even through the tough years of dealing with a wild teenager we had a open relationship. I remember back the wisdom he shared with me but didn't take. Just a couple years ago we where having a conversation and I told him how right he was and his advice could of saved myself a lot of grief if I would of listened. He just said that's what makes life interesting never did he say I told you so. I'm not sure yet how everyone moves on without him but hope a path becomes clear with time. He will always be in heart and will be missed.
