Richard Edward Beacham OBE, JP, PJM died on 18 June 2008.

He had a very happy and extraordinary life, which in the 40th year of his marriage to Judith, culminated in a wonderful last month:  In May Richard witnessed Justin’s marriage to Rachel; Nigel and Anne-Marie presented him with a grandson, Finn, and he celebrated his 70th birthday.  Richard shared these wonderful moments with friends and family on his last Saturday at a summer party at Prestbury.  He died peacefully at home.

Nigel

 

Justin

Peter Burrows
