James R. Beazle, 60 years of age, passed away Friday, December 7, 2012 at his residence.
Born on September 26, 1952 in Canton, Ohio, he was the son of the late John F. and M. Jane (Townsend) Beazle, III. A longtime Geauga County resident including the Burton area, he was a former member and deacon of the Burton Congregational Church, moving to Mantua in 2011. Mr. Beazle was a 1970 graduate of Shaker Hts. High School, following which he attended and graduated from Mount Union College in 1974. He was self employed in the accounting and financial sector of business. Mr. Beazle was an avid reader, enjoyed all forms of music, golfing, a dedicated Cleveland Indians fan, yet his allegiance to football as a Mount Union "Purple Raiders" fan will always, along with his vivid sense of humor, be part of the legacy his life will be remembered for.
Survivors include his siblings, John F. (Barbara) Beazle, IV, of Cohutta, Georgia, Jeffrie (Robert) Leahy of Fitchburg, Wisconsin and Jo Ellen (John) Such of Newbury, Ohio, many loving nieces and nephews, his dear friend, Jerry "Hammer" Hammerton of Alliance, Ohio and his many longtime friends of the Mount Union Tail Gate Group. He was preceded in death by his wife, Constance I. (Bodine) Beazle in 2004.
No calling hours. Cremation has taken place with his final resting place to be at Nondaga Cemetery in Bath, New York. A Service of Remembrance will be held on Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 12:30 P.M. at the Burton Congregational Church. Arrangements are by the Green Family Funeral Home & Crematory Service in Mantua, Ohio.
