Warren Ray Beebout Passes Away
Warren Ray Beebout Age 65 of Stevens Point, WI passed away Saturday afternoon August 26, 2017 at his home following a courageous battle with cancer with his loving family at his side. He was a loving husband and father and the very best Papa Beebs. Warren was born November 1, 1951 in Chariton, IA. He is the son of Evelyn (Shepard) Beebout of Iowa and the late Kenneth Beebout. He grew up on the family farm in Columbia, IA. After attending schools in Columbia, IA and Knoxville, IA, Warren attended Iowa State University obtaining a Bachelor Degree in Agricultural Business. Immediately after graduation in 1973, Warren was hired by Del Monte Foods. Warren loved his job, admired his growers and enjoyed his 42 years of employment as a Field Supervisor. Even after his retirement in March of 2016 he still wanted to play in the dirt and went to work for one of his growers for a few months, which he enjoyed immensely. His marriage to Janice Fletcher took place on February 27, 1982 at the Buena Vista United Methodist Church. His wife Janice survives. He was a faithful member of the Columbia United Methodist Church in Iowa and joined the Buena Vista United Methodist Church after his marriage.
We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Dad over the years, among them were:
ALWAYS make a list
Shut off the lights
Make your bed
Check your oil
Work hard and always come home with a smile
There were many, many more lessons for which we are so thankful.
In lieu of flowers memorials in Warren’s name will be established at a later date.
