Robert E. Beam entered into eternal rest while at home on November 6th, 2017.
Bob was born in Summerdale, PA, in 1933. He was one of nine children born to George and Goldie Beam.
He was the loving husband of Patsy, who preceded him in death in 2008. They were married 50 years.
He is survived by his children: Lori A. Lashley, wife of Richard Lashley; Connie Cagno, wife of Scott Cagno; and Pamela Cagno, wife of Kevin Cagno. In addition to his children, he is survived by 7 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild, 2 brothers and 4 sisters.
He was a veteran of the US Army serving during the Korean War.
He worked as a production manager at Thomas J. Lipton for most of his career, retiring in 1991.
Bob was an incredible handyman and could build or fix anything. His family was his greatest treasure and he was a devoted husband, father, and “pappy.” He will be greatly missed. We face his loss here on earth, but heaven is rejoicing as one returns home.
