Beau loved life. He especially loved his mother and his sisters, Ashley and Tiffany.

Beau could tell you the best of everything from laundry detergent or the best red wine for any occasion. He was a gourmet cook and loved fine wine (especially on his mother's credit card).
He developed a new love and that was flying copilot with his roommate's father. He thoroughly enjoyed his time spent with his roommate, Bryan Hamlin laughing, joking and just being himself.
