Gerald Donald Beam
SHELBY - Gerald Donald Beam, 82, a native of Cleveland County, passed away on Friday, May 13, 2016 at Kings Mountain Hospice House. He was predeceased by his parents, Clem and Patsy Wallace Beam; three brothers, Hershal Beam, Clyde Beam and Rivere Beam; three sisters, Annie Beam, Polly Beam and Inze Beam.
Gerald served two years in the United States Army. Anyone that met him would say he was one of the most generous people they have ever met. He would give his last dollar to anyone who was in need. He was an avid animal lover, even to the animals most people would never help. He was quite the comedian and always loved a good joke. He was a lover of Duke basketball and would get fired up anytime anyone would even mention the Tar Heels to him. He loved to talk and never met a stranger. We know that he is now in a better place but he will forever be in our hearts.
He is survived by a daughter, Donna Beam Hodge and husband,Robert Hodge; four grandchildren, Robbie Hodge, Katie Hodge McSwain and husband, Mark McSwain, Ashley Hodge and Jon Michael Hodge; a great-grandson, Beckham Parker McSwain.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
Services are entrusted to Robert S. Morgan, Jr., Funeral Service Licensee, LLC of Fallston. Online condolences may be made at www.rsmorganfsl.com.
