Roy Bucklin Beach
12/4/1929 - 3/5/2014
Roy Bucklin Beach, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away peacefully at home on March 5, 2014. Born in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Roy was raised in Burbank California. He served in the US Naval Reserves as well as the US Army in Austria and Germany. He also served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in France. He received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Brigham Young University. He married Diane Smith in the Salt Lake LDS Temple in September 1957. He spent his life working with young people, first by teaching mathematics and French at Jordan Junior High School in Burbank, California, and spent more than 20 years as a teacher and counselor at Burbank High School. You couldn't go anywhere within a 20 mile radius of Burbank without someone saying "Hello, Mr. Beach". After retiring to South Jordan, Utah, Roy spent years volunteering his time for LDS Church, including the local family history center, the Jordan River Temple, the church history museum and the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. He was preceded in death by his wife, Diane. Roy is survived by his children, David (Julia), Kristen Klegseth (Junior), Karen Hill (Robert), Melinda Altenberg (Gary), Jennifer Gearing (Dan), Jonathan (Gwen), 16 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
