Not sure what to say?

A kind, delightful gentleman. I know his family misses him.

Mr. Beasley was one of my favorite teachers- I aggravated him so much, I am sure, but he always laughed. So good-natured. Rest In Peace, my friend.

My heart breaks at the loss of Mr. Beasley. He was one of my favorite teachers. You can take comfort in the fact that he made a difference in so many young lives and that he was loved by so many. May God bless you and give you peace.

May God, our refuge and our strength help you through your sorrow and in His mercy grant you peace to lighten each tomorrow.

May God's loving kindness comfort you and help you through this sad and difficult time. Psalms 119:50,76.

Mr. Beasley was such a great teacher and an even better person. He taught me physical science and computer science. The fact that he had an Apple Computer lab in RSHS back in the late 80's always impressed me. He was always thinking ahead to better prepare his students. What a wonderful man who has impacted so many people. RSHS Class of 88.

I remember like it was yesterday, I was sitting in the second row of your Chemistry class at Red Springs High....You were one of the best Science teachers around....I hope I'm half the teacher to my student's, that you were to me....I really enjoyed going to your class, where "IT WAS NEVER COLD!"....You made Science Fun and exciting everyday....Everyday was a new day with you, you never knew what was gonna happen....You will be truly missed and never forgotten!!!! Rip Mr. Beasley❤...

Great Teacher and Person!! You are well thought of Mr. Beasley. Your friendly face in the hallways of RSHS will never be forgotten. RIP Sir!!

Rest In Peace my dear friend. I will always remember the great times we had at Red Springs. The many times you rescued me and laughed afterward. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
