SPRING HILL, Fla. -- Wilson H. Beebe Sr., 86, died Friday, Dec. 21, 2007, in Spring Hill following a prolonged illness.

The son of Walter H. and Edna P. Beebe, he was born Dec. 2, 1921, on the family farm in East Dorset, Vt. A graduate of Burr and Burton Seminary, he continued his education at Randolph Agricultural School before graduating from the University of Vermont with his degree in agriculture in 1947. A member of the ROTC, he interrupted his college studies when called to service in World War II.

After working with the Vermont Extension Service as a county agent, he went to work for the John Deere Company in 1951. He retired as a divisional sales manager in 1982, moving to Spring Hill in 1983.

Wilson is survived by his wife of 40 years, Pietrina D Beebe; his daughters, Margaret R. Artin and her husband Al Retay of Cleveland, Ohio; Paula and her husband Thomas Nannicelli of Walpole, Mass.; Linda Beebe Potter and her companion H. M. Tucker of St. Albans, Vt.; Janice and her husband Allen Crane, also of St. Albans; his son, Wilson H. Beebe Jr. and his wife Anne Torre of Red Bank, N.J.; his brothers, Leland P. Beebe of Clifton Park, N.Y., and Harold and his wife Jane Beebe of East Dorset, Vt.; nine grandchildren, five great grandchildren and many caring nieces and nephews.

Wilson made it “home” for Christmas. With his wry sense of humor, the twinkle in his eye and deep love of family and friends, he will live forever in the spirit of Christmas.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, Dec. 29, 2007, at 2 p.m. in the East Dorset Congregational Church, East Dorset.
