David Roy Beemer, age 57, of Gowen, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at his home.  The son of Garold Dale & Roselie M. "Rose" (Badge) Beemer, he was born on January 29, 1960 in Greenville.  

While still in high school Dave began working nights at the former Electrolux Home Products and earned his GED later in life.  He worked as a repairman until the plant closed, then worked at Uni-Solar, and then as a commercial truck driver.

On September 9, 2006, he married the former Karen Thompson, and in his free time Dave enjoyed cutting wood, gardening, raising chickens, and puttering around the farm.  He was preceded in death by his parents;  a brother, George Cox;  and a brother-in-law, Pat Cooper.

Surviving are his wife, Karen Beemer of Gowen; his daughter, Mandy & Marco Bilello of Nashville;  a granddaughter, Sophia Bilello;  four step-children, Ryan Lewis, Alisha & Josh Denton, Tyler Lewis, all of Greenville, and Darren Lewis of Gowen;  five step-grandchildren, Zander Lewis, Nathan Nash, Elisa Getts, Donovan Denton, and Corbin Denton; four brothers, Robert & Terri Cox of Wiedman, Arthur & Maggie Cox, Dennis & Peggy Cox, all of Gowen, and Gordon Cox of Cedar Springs;  a sister,  Marjean Cooper of Greenville;  and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Honoring David's wishes, cremation will take place and a celebration of life is being planned for a later date.  Instead of flowers, donations in David's memory to your favorite charity would be appreciated.
