    Beach was one of the first people to make me feel welcome when we worked together at Weyerhaeuser/IP. We were friends and co workers for 25+ years. Whether it was taking the kids sledding, or at a birthday party, or just running into each other at Wegmans, he always tried to make the kids laugh. I remember how much he enjoyed ” clowning”. I couldn’t even begin to count the laughs we had. My deepest condolences to his family. Rest in peace Beach. I miss you already, Patty C.

      My deepest condolences to the entire Beachner/Sharkey family! I remember going to a cheerleading competition in Atlantic City when Chastity and I were about 12 years old. I was terrified getting on this massive stage and when I finally looked up at crowd I saw Beach in a clown costume with a huge banner. I will forever remember him this way. He was always so nice to all us girls. Sending you all love!

    My condolences to Beach’s family. I was one of the lucky folks who had the pleasure of working with Beach at Weyerhaeuser upon first moving to Rochester years back. No matter how chaotic it got, he always kept everything in perspective and was able to cool everyone’s jets. The first lesson he taught me was on day 1 of training. He pointed to a picture on his wall of downed power lines. He said, “don’t let this happen.” Of course, in the box biz, “lines are down” is the equivalent to hearing “The Stars and Stripes Forever” at a carnival. May he rest in peace.
