It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our son, father, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend; Brian (Wayne) Beacham, age 42. Wayne will be lovingly remembered by his parents Brian & Margaret Beacham of Sioux Narrows, ON; his children Matthew, Meagan & Bradley; his brother Bruce (Michelle), Tyler, Ashley & Riley; sister Jackie (Rene), Robbie & Julie; and sister Kathie (Augie), Brendan, Jonathan & Kaylie. He will also be remembered by Stacy, (Greg) sister-in-law Lianne (Dale Jackson) Kaitlyn& Emma, father-in-law Lanny LaBelle(Colleen) Mother-in-law Judy LaBelle as well as his best friend Grant Swire.
He was predeceased by his brother Bradley (1969), grandparents Jim & Olga Beacham, John & Margaret Livingston. Uncles Melvin, Barrie & George, aunt Gail and niece Christina (2001).
Wayne was born on October 28, 1967 and raised in Sioux Narrows, Ontario. He received his education at Sioux Narrows public school, Lakewood Intermediate, and Beaver Brae Secondary School (Grad 87). After high school Wayne worked as a guide and started learning the skills to be a Carpenter. Wayne owned his contracting business building and renovating homes and cottages in the Fort Frances and Sioux Narrows area. The phone never stopped ringing with people calling for Wayne to apply his trade.
Wayne had 3 passions in life. His family (especially his kids), curling & fishing. Wayne's life revolved around his kids. He enjoyed taking them fishing & to hockey practices and games. He was his happiest when he was with his kids. He enjoyed having Matthew work with him in the summer months and loved to take his kids out on the lake. Anyone that was lucky enough to know Wayne would soon realize his compassion for others. He would do anything & everything for his friends & family. Wayne was very close to his Dad and thought of him not only as his Dad, but as one of his best friends. His passion for curling started at an early age, and he competed throughout high school and continued in his later years. His greatest achievement in curling was when he won the National Mixed Championships for Northwestern Ontario. Wayne's passion for fishing also started at an early age. As soon as he could drive a boat he became a fishing guide out on the lake for summer employment. This was the best job for him, giving him the opportunity to enjoy his passion.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Sioux Narrows United Church on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Carl Emke officiating.

To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me.
When I'm gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy we had so many wonderful years.
I gave you my love and you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I travelled on alone.
So grieve a while for me if you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part.
So bless those memories in your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on,
And if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see me or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart you'll hear
All of my love around, soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone…
I'll greet you with a smile and … "Welcome Home"
