The Rev. Bill Fine recalled Jason J. Beadles'' fondness for hockey, but he could never be sure if Beadles _ 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds _ actually liked the game itself, or whether he simply liked "bumping into people and knocking them down." Beadles, 22, of La Porte, Ind., was accidentally electrocuted April 12. He was assigned to Fort Campbell and was a 2003 high school graduate. "He was a wonderful student, and what a caring person. He was real affable, enthusiastic. He was the kind of son who would make a mother proud and the kind of student who would make a teacher proud," said Sue Knop, his high school guidance counselor. Camping, hunting, bonfires and country music were among the things he loved. It was common to see Beadles wrestling with his three nephews and two nieces. "Uncle Jason was as much a kid as they were. He could easily be found playing in the sandbox or a pile of leaves," said his mother, Delona. The first thing Beadles wanted to do once he returned home was buy a motorcycle. He was planning to learn how to repair and build motorcycles as a career. He also is survived by his father, Roger.
