Jerry Claude Beeson
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a beloved man, Jerry Claude Beeson. Born in Clinton, Okla., on July 24, 1945, he left an indelible mark on the world around him. A true son of the Sooner State, he embodied the spirit of excellence from an early age, shining as an all-star athlete in his youth.
His journey led him to The University of Oklahoma, where he pursued his undergraduate and law degrees. He also ran for the OU Track Team, forever etching his allegiance to the crimson and cream. He honorably served our country as a Captain Adjutant General Corps in the Army. A dedicated and passionate individual, he later assumed the role of President of the OU Club of Dallas, tirelessly championing his alma mater. Boomer Sooner!
In the realm of real estate development, Jerry loved his work and his ventures have left an indelible mark on the landscape of our communities. Notably, he was the proud owner of the Love Field Antique Mall, a space that spoke to his appreciation for history and the cherished stories that accompany it.
The mountains held a special place in his heart, particularly the serenity of Creede, Colo. At 8,852 feet, he found solace in its rugged beauty, forging cherished memories through hunting, fishing and treasured moments with his beloved family.
Jerry leaves behind a legacy woven with threads of passion, dedication, and an unyielding love for his family. May his memory forever be a beacon of inspiration to us all.
Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Jack Beeson and Dorothy Seay.
He is survived by his wife Karen Beeson, stepmother Joe Ann, sons Shane and Brandon, daughter Amy Dodson, daughters-in law Katrin and Shannon Beeson, son-in-law Jerry Dodson, grandchildren Jaxon, Hadley, Abigail, Bryce, Grier, Jaime, Jeramy and his wife Katelyn, great-grandchild Adalynn, along with countless friends and extended family.
There will be a Celebration of Life at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1, at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church in Dallas.
For those that would like to make a gift in his memory, the family is asking that friends make contributions to the SPCA or Creede Repertory Theatre.
