Herbert G. Beers Jr. Herbert "Bud" G Beers, Jr., 82, of Muse, FL, went to be with God on May 31, 2021 in Lehigh Acres, FL, following a brief illness. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family. Bud grew up in Brookfield, CT. He told great stories of his wild adventures with his friends and family, including racing their hotrods, causing Pocono Road to be nicknamed, "Hell Street." From the days of racing his Merc' in his younger years to hitting the streets in his later years in his Camaro with The South Central Florida Car Club, Bud was a car enthusiast at heart. Bud attended Danbury High School, Class of 1957 and was committed in maintaining contact with his classmates throughout the years. His fifty-five-year truck driving career began in 1960. In the mid nineteen sixties Bud began his long career of over the road trucking beginning with Danbury Explosives, hauling explosives. Later he and his wife Ellen, were Owner/Operators of their company, Midnight Haulers. Bud was a life member and a Golden Eagle Memeber of the National Rifle Association, a life member of The Owner Operator and Independent Operators Assoc. and Muse Community Association. He was an avid fan of Westerns and Comedies. We will all remember his best recognizable laugh. Bud was predeceased by his father, Herbert G Beers, Sr. and mother, Kathryn E Pflomm. To continue in his memory he leaves behind his wife of thirty four years, Ellen G Maclaughlin Beers, of Muse, FL, his brother Craig Beers (Karen Kelly) of Sherman, CT, his three daughters, Lisa Beers of Brookfield, CT, Suellen Beers (Jeff Ballard) of Northville, CT, Elizabeth Maclaughlin (Robert Hogans) of Winter Haven, FL, Father-in-Law, Roger Maclaughlin of Steuben, NY, Sister-in-Law, Sheliah Kaufold (William Kaufold) of Milford, NH, Brother-in-Law, Kurt Maclaughlin, Steuben, NY and many nieces and nephews. Bud is dearly loved by his family and friends. He was one of the nicest, friendliest guys one could ever meet. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He is now at peace with his best and faithful pals, Schultz and Mikey. At Bud's request, in lieu of flowers, any charitable donations be made to The Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company, P.O. Box 5111, Brookfield, CT 06804. A memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family.

I met Lisa and Suellen in Jr. High School, and when I told my dad who they were, he smiled real big and asked: "Are they any relation to Buddy Beers?" And from that moment on, the stories ran wild about the days Buddy and my Dad "Pal'd around." My condolences to Lisa and Suellen. Always look for those pennies from Heaven, and if you find a dime next to a penny, you know our Dads are "Palling around" together. Love you both! Billie
