Obituary - Mark Edward Beauchamp

Mark Edward Beauchamp, age 69, passed away on Saturday, December 31, 2022, at his home in Nevada, MO.

Mark was born on September 24, 1953, in Springfield, MO to Henry Tilden and Minnie Elizabeth (James) Beauchamp. He graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1971, then married his soulmate, Mary Jo Robertson on October 15, 1974 in Miami, Oklahoma. Mark was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. 

He worked, managed, and co-owned a Turf Farm for 30+ years. He was a former long-time member & President on the Board of Morrisville Rural Fire & Rescue Department, and an EMT with Firefighter 1 certification. Mark had a green thumb and could grow the most beautiful flower gardens. 

He never met a stranger, and everyone loved him. Mark was a great handyman and could fix anything. He loved to teach others how to do all the things he knew how to do. Mark loved his family, friends, flowers, and his dog Babee. He would help anyone, at any time, do anything. Mark will be missed beyond measure. This world is a little darker without his mischievous personality, wonderfully infectious laugh, and gorgeous smile. We love you Dad, please give mom a big hug and kiss for us.

Mark is survived by his children, Aaron (Mahayla) Beauchamp, Amber (Jimmy) Overton; grandchildren, Matthew (Lydia) Beauchamp, Alexis (Daniel) Moore, Corbin (Bryson) Overton, Kaileah Beauchamp, Maria Beauchamp, Griffin Beauchamp, Oliver Beauchamp; great-grandchildren, Heath Beauchamp, and Stella Beauchamp.
