Not sure what to say?

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Having worked at a drive-in located near my childhood home, I grew up learning to appreciate the theatre industry as Mr. Beasley had during his lifetime. It was great to pull up to the ticket booth... I always came in late so it wouldn't hold any other customers up... and just sat and talked with Mr. Beasley for a few minutes. The conversation always seemed to work its way around to "theatre talk", projectors, sound system and back in the days of carbon arc lighting. We'd talk...

I have lived in Christiansburg all my life and have spent many summers enjoying the drive in and many fond memories of mister Beasley taking our money at the gate.

Dear Mr. Beasley I will miss you very much. I did not know you but I always enjoyed seeing you as we went in to the movies. You were a wonderful, sweet, and caring man.

OMG!! I just found out Mr.Beasley had passed and I was very saddened to hear this. We have been coming to the drive in for awhile and truly loved seeing him at the gate. He will be sooooooo missed. Our hearts go out to the family

May God be a comfort to the family and thanks to Mr.Beasley who sold me my first ticket and great memories.

I have only been once and Mr. Beasley sold my husband and I the ticket. It was a joy and brought back wonderful childhool memories of being at the drive-in. I thank him and you for giving and keeping this great entertainment memory alive.

I had many wonderful evenings watching a movie to which Mr. Beasley sold me the ticket. It was and is a testament to him as a man that so had so many lovely nights with loved ones, family, and friends at the Starlight. What a wonderful person, and what a beautiful legacy.
