Rex Beachum

April 27, 1944 — October 11, 2022

Rex Wayne Beachum, 78 years old, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Denham Springs, on Tuesday, October 11, 2022. He was born in Ville Platte, Louisiana, on April 27, 1944, and raised in Port Allen and New Iberia. He enlisted in the United States Navy after high school graduation. As a serviceman, he was stationed in many locations including a two-year stint in Japan. Rex loved the western United States and enjoyed camping and exploring the wilderness areas there and participating in Search and Rescue Operations in Nevada. After retiring from the Navy and civil service as an aircraft simulator repair technician, he returned to his home state of Louisiana and worked at the state department of Transportation where he retired a second time. Back in Louisiana, Rex added the Atchafalaya Basin to his list of favorite places. Rex was preceded in death by his parents, J. L. and Ruby Cox Beachum, and his brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Dorothy Longman Beachum. He is survived by a sister, Betty Beachum and three nephews Bob Beachum, David L. Montero and John B. Montero and their families. To honor Rex’s wishes, there was no funeral service. We invite you to privately celebrate Rex’s memory in your own way. The family had a private celebration of his life.
