Talked Beezie, Brick Adams, Charlie Osborn, and Mike Hobbs into "going out for boxing one year--I think in 1968 or 1969. All three were "above average" for beginning boxers. Don't think any of them did it again, but just didn't see Beezie as a boxer. He surprised everyone.

It's funny how paths cross later on in life.

I hope you and David are on an endless skydive and loving every moment of it!

A great guy that was always smiling! Never forget the time my dad took Beezy and me with him on a business trip, we were about 14. We went to St. Louis and he took us to the Playboy Club for dinner! We thought we had died and gone to heaven. We swipped some of the pictures off the wall and some plates etc. and got caught. The management kind of laughed and made us put them back, gave us some Playboy ashtrays. We always laughed about that when we would see each other through the years. Fly High Beezy!!

Beezie was my Insructor and friend on my first and last skydiving adventure, he taught me the real meaning of only bird doo and fools fall out of the sky what a great guy and friend

Beezy was easy to love and I miss him. We were not close in school yet he came to work with me at Chattanooga Business Machines for a few years and we became much closer. I was fortunate to get to know Candy and his children at our company outings. He skydived into one of those outings to everyones surprise and enjoyment.

Beezy was my friend and neighbor on Signal Mountain when we moved there at age 7.  I fondly remember sledding down the hill at their house in the wintertime.  My sister, Kay, and his sister, Sandy, were friends.  We loved the whole family.  Beezy's house was the cool house to visit.  Beezy is in my thoughts often--bringing good memories of my early childhood!

Beezy you were larger than life and lived your life to highest extent possible.  I was so surprised to hear of your death.  You were always so kind and sweet to me.  Everyone who knew you loved you and you'll never be forgotten.  God Bless you and rest in peace.  Soar with the angels now my dear friend.
