Carl Winford Beard, 83, resident of Las Vegas since 1990, departed this earth on February 25, 2014 at 1:58 p.m. with his family by his side. Carl was born in Indianola, Mississippi on September 25, 1930 to Carl Houston Beard and Willie Celeste Beard. 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.

He touched the lives of so many people and was the pillar of his family. He had a wonderful sense of humor and beautiful blues eyes that lit up when he smiled. He was an outstanding husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He will be dearly missed.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Emily Scariano; four children, Cathy Kohlenberger, Pam Cornelius, Hal Beard, and David Beard; 10 grandchildren, and 16 great-grandchildren. Visitation will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2014 from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. with services proceeding at Greenwood Funeral Home, 5200 Canal Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70124. Carl will be laid to rest following the services at the Greenwood Cemetery.

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".
