William Deane Beach, 84, went to be with the Lord on November 10, 2021. Deane was born July 4, 1937 in Sheridan Lake, Kiowa County, CO. He is survived by his wife, Ella Mae Beach; son, Jim (Sherri) Beach; daughter, Sandy (Ken) Buren; his grandchildren, Bob Beach, Jeff (Emerie) Beach, Kate Buren and Charlie Buren; plus many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Deane’s family lived on the border of Colorado and Kansas when he was little. While the house was in Colorado, Kansas was just across the one lane road. They moved to Pueblo while he was in junior high school and he graduated from Centennial in 1955. While working for Santa Fe Railroad, Deane met his soon-to-be-bride, Ella Mae. For the next 62 years Deane was never happier than when he was with Ella Mae. Deane retired from CF&I in 1985 and continued to work as a bus driver and trainer for District 60 and for shuttle companies. Wherever he went, Deane was always on the lookout for a cup of coffee and a new friend. Any friend that needed help knew they only had to ask.
He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and Wesley Methodist Church. A Celebration of Deane’s life is being planned for a later date.
