Frederick Beecher

WALTON Frederick Russell Beecher, age 100, of 139 North St., Walton, died Tuesday, April 10, 2001, at his home.

He was born on May 12, 1900, at Rock Valley, a son of Charles and Kathryn Beecher.

On June 9, 1921, he married Minnie Alma Hoolihan in Goulds. They lived several years in Rock Valley, near Hancock and then moved to Walton in 1937.

Mr. Beecher was employed at the GLF Feed Store in Walton and also operated several different dairy farms in Rock Valley and Walton.

He particularly enjoyed gardening, mowing and building. However, deer hunting and watching televised baseball were his favorite hobbies. In later years Mr. and Mrs. Beecher enjoyed using their travel trailer and taking many senior citizen trips. Fred was known for his quiet sense of humor and towering strength of character. He immensely enjoyed his 100th birthday party in May 2000.

Fred Beecher is survived by five daughters, Viola and Charles Fiumera of Walton, Wenona and Donald Hovey of Cooperstown, Virginia Beecher of Utica, Althea and Lawrence Gennarino of Oneonta and Carol and Charles Brown of Morrestown, N.J.; 19 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews, including a special nephew, Charles Beecher of Walton. His special longtime friends were Evelyn and the late Graham Jackson of Walton.

He was predeceased by his wife of 78 years, Minnie Alma Beecher in 1999; and twin sons, Hilton and Milton Beecher.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Lyon Bros.-Way Inc. Funeral Home, corner North and Delaware streets, Walton, where friends may call on Friday, April 13, 2001, from 1 to 3 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. Service 10 a.m. Saturday, April 14, 2001, at the United Methodist Church, North Street, Walton, with the Rev. Earl Pomeroy officiating. Burial will be in Walton Cemetery.
