Our memories are vast in knowing Ray for 8 years. He was our neighbor who became more like a relative than friend. We would go out to breakfasts, dinners and even shopping at costco and walmart. He was very independent and never wanted to be a burden on anyone. He was so thrilled to get his drivers license for another 7 years at the age of 90. His favorite saying was "Your killing me with kindness". Our answer to that was it's our pleasure just to hear your stories of his world travels. He still mowed his own yard and kept up with what friends and family were up to. He was a very proud man and we were proud to have known him. Thank you Ray for being part of our lives. Your friends Steve and Linda Bock

Raymond Beach was a wonderful Uncle and a wonderful man. It was always a special occasion to be around him. While we did not get to see each other much because of the distance, he was always in my heart. When we talked on the phone, he always said "LOVE YA" in that big voice of his. I really admired my uncle for his love of life and his independence. His sister Edna, my mom, and he were close, but also lived a distance from him. But they spoke by phone on a regular schedule, recalling childhood memories and good times. We miss you much Uncle Ray. LOVE YA!!!! Barbara Becker-Cottrill

We have fond memories of Ray as both a neighbor and a friend. He was always happy to see you. We remember numerous times when we sent our children over the help clear snow off his driveway as an opportunity to help him out only to have them return saying "Mr. Beach paid me for helping - I tried to give it back but he insisted". Generosity was certainly in his heart. We were blessed to have him next door to us. We will miss him. Dale and Julie Zilke

My Father was, as a friend put it, a lovely man. He was born in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan in New York City. He lost his Mother at a young age and was raised by his aunt. He was a WWII Veteran, and then worked for the U. S. Government, retiring in 1977, after 38 years of service. He was a Logistician, retiring as Executive Assistant and Director of Distribution and Transportation in Pirmasens, Germany. He and his wife Agnes were married in Japan, and adopted me in 1957. Our family lived in Germany for 17 years, until shortly after I came to Davis & Elkins. Ray celebrated his 90th birthday in August, still living in his own home in Winchester, Virginia, and was completely independent with all of his affairs. He even mowed his own grass and kept up with his neighbors, who adored him, as did we. We will always be grateful for Raymond Beach, and now he is with his bride Agnes. We love you Dad, and we wish you Godspeed in this next journey, and we will miss you terribly. Ronald & Terri Beach Hope to see everyone at the Memorial service on Saturday, Dec. 8th at 11:00 a.m.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Ray was a lovely man with the kindest of hearts. In his way of thinking it was always OK for him to help you, but he’d fuss, with his booming voice, if you even suggested doing something for him. He was a wonderful example of how to live fully and bravely face each day. He was a sweet and charming man (in his own curmudgeonly way) who deeply loved his family. He was the best neighbor I’ve ever known and a true friend. I feel blessed to have known him.
