This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Adam Beasley, 76, born on December 18, 1896 and passed away on May 11, 1973. We will remember him forever. Adam Beasley taught for over thirty years. He was a teacher that had several qualities that made up a great teacher. For example, he set high expectations for his students. He never let his students give up on themselves. He always thought his students could always meet their full potential. He loved to look his students into the eyes and remind them of his high expectations. Adam was known for investing extra time with students. Whether it was at lunch or P.E., Adam was there reminding his students that they can obtain their goals. Also, Adam had a sense of humor. Most people did not understand the dryness of his jokes, but they always appreciated Adam’s positive outlook on life. His beloved wife would always laugh at his jokes though. Maybe that is why she was his perfect match. Adam’s sense of humor helped connect with his students at a high level. With using humor and personality, students were able to grasp material and demonstrate a sky-scraping level of learning. Indeed, Adam was fair with his students. He had a backbone and stood up for what was right.  Mr. Beasley was always known for being a nice and engaging teacher. However, every student knew not to step over that line of behavior. Adam always enjoyed the challenge of a problem child. He always told me that me that those were the type of students that need care and love at a high level. Also, Mr. Beasley was known for having great optimism. His colleagues never heard him complain or gripe about a student of his. He loved and cherished each student across the bored. When other teachers would complain about there students and ask him about his problem students, Adam would always say, “Well, I can not wait to see what the future holds for them.” Having a positive outlook on life always saved Adam from the stresses of a teacher’s life. Furthermore, Adam always believed in his students even when the situation seemed hopeless. Facility would normally place boys in his classroom that did not have dads. He directed those boys on a path that would one day turn them into a man. I would always have past students told me that my dad was the only one who believed in them. It is that same believe that helped me become the man I am today. My dad modeled to me to never give up even when things are facing turmoil. It is during those times, that miracles happen. My father loved to play basketball with my siblings and I. He loved to take us to the park and wrestle with us. My father loved to tell me that he loved me and that he counted on me to live a great life. My father Adam Beasley will be missed by many, but will never be forgotten.

His Son,

Weston Beasley
