Richard Beaver Allan Obituary
Richard Beaver Allan Feb. 17, 1945 ~ Nov. 27, 2012 Former Resident of Danville Richard Beaver Allan was born February 17, 1945 in New Orleans, LA. Richard was the first of 3 children born to Elbert Edward & Velma (Spidle) Beaver. Richard grew up in Iowa City, IA & attended high school at City High as well as earning his Business Administration degree from the University of Iowa in 1968. During college he was enrolled in the Army ROTC program & served in Vietnam as a 1st lieutenant from July 1969 - June 1970. He was awarded the Bronze Star medal for meritorious achievement. Richard's career moved him to the West as he spent 30+ years in the Hospital Supply Industry in the San Francisco Bay Area. His mentorship touched & guided many people in their careers & he continued to have lasting friends from the industry and the community. Richard loved the rolling hills & tall grass of Danville, CA as well as the majestic scenery of Mt. Diablo but his true love was when he met & married Jeanie Mace his wife of 27 years. Upon retirement Richard & Jeanie relocated to St. George, Utah relaxing among the red rock mountainous setting of the home they built overlooking the 14th green while enjoying the activities of golf & traveling, & spending time with their kids, grandkids, sister, brother & friends. Richard, not one to ever sit idle, engaged in a new career with New York Life, he loved the excitement of starting something new. He said many times how he wished he could have learned financial planning much earlier and hoped he could help others to plan for the future. He made many good friends the past year with NYL & loved all the training. Cars were one of Richard's passions, owning them, negotiating for them & many times just viewing them at car shows or kicking the tires at car lots. It was not uncommon to see Richard with a new car often & frequently. He will be remembered & dearly missed for his fun loving, playful & teasing ways with his family & friends. He is survived by his wife Jeanie, threesons & five grandchildren. Rick & Mary Beaver of Chandler, AZ (grandchildren Kate & Jake), Mike & Kristina Mitchell of Danville, CA (grandchildren Mason, Milly & Charlotte), Brian Mitchell (Stacie Sellstrom) of Oakley, CA, sister Connie Throckmorton (Mike) of Littleton, CO, brother Ron Beaver (Audre) of Round Rock, TX and nieces Alison & Tracey Beaver of Austin, TX. Rest in Peace. We love you. A celebration of life will be scheduled in late January 2013 in Danville, CA. Family & friends are invited to share condolences online at www.serenicare.com
