Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We have still another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter this early Friday morning. Lewis Beazlie, Class of February 1945, passed away in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday, February 13, 2012, sixteen days before his 83rd birthday (discounting the Leap Year Day factor).
From Fred Field (June '45) of CA - 02/17/12, 12:30 PM - " Lewis H. Beazlie, Jr.":
|Hello Carol, Fri. Feb. 17
Lewis Beazlie is in DP obits. today.
He was in Feb. Class 1945.

Thank you so much for clarifying that, Fred. I thought when I was unable to locate him in the June 1945 or either the February or June 1944 Beacons, he must surely have been in the February 1945 (which is not in my possession), but I didn't want to state that for a fact until I heard from you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
~ Gail Henderson
I am very saddened to learn of Lew's passing. We worked together for a number of years at John McMullen and Associates and spent time together working on several projects, one of which was the development of a new heavy lift boom system for the Navy's new ARS-50 salvage vessels. We also volunteered to go to Canada to help the Canadians develop a new class of frigates in the mid eighties and enjoyed each other's company, both at work and socially with our new Canadian friends. Lew was a very intelligent, articulate and pleasant person to be around. He was also very humorous and we enjoyed many good times together. Over the years we stayed in contact with each other which was a testament to our great friendship. My sincere condolences go out to Beverly and the rest of the family at this time.
Judy and Family,
I pray for the strength and comfort that can only come from our Heavenly Father.

Dear Aunt Beverly,
Wanted to let you know how sorry we are for your husband's passing. Curt would love to be there, but he had surgery yesterday and is unable to travel today. Curt wishes so much to be there to be a support for the family, know that he is there in thoughts and prayers and may his presence be felt. I hope that you will be comfortable in Ohio, very cold, but know that your family must be there and for that we are thankful for family support and presence. I did not know Uncle Lewis well, but know he must have been a good man to be with you and to love you and we surely know he will be missed and not forgotten. His memory will live on in all of you. God bless you all and wish we could be there.

Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always HaveBuckroe!
