On September 18, 2006, Richard Dwight Beadle went to be with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Richard was born on April 18, 1923 in Cheyenne, Oklahoma. He was an Eagle Scout and after graduating high school was drafted in the Marine Corps. Richard married Virginia Decker in 1943 in Yuma, Arizona just prior to going overseas. He served in World War II and the Korean War and was honorably discharged in 1952 as a Tech Sergeant. Richard majored in Engineering, receiving his Bachelor of Science Degree from UCLA in 1958. He worked for Aero Jet General in Azusa, California as an Aeronautical Engineer. Upon retiring, he moved to Santa Barbara County in 1976. He resided in Cuyama until 1999 and finally moved to Santa Maria for his remaining years.

Richard was known for his love for Jesus. He was a member of Grace Bible Church. He was certain that he would spend eternity with Christ and did not depend on what he did or did not do, but what Christ did for him.
