Gary Charles, “Chuck” Beecham, age 44 of Henry, TN, died Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at Henry County Medical Center in Paris.


He formerly worked for UPS for 21 years.  He also formerly drove a school bus for the Henry County Board of Education and worked for McCartney Produce in Paris.  Chuck was known by many as one of the most generous people they had ever met.  His caring heart and generosity of spirit was felt by all who knew him.  He was the “neighborhood watch” in his community and loved riding around checking on everyone.  Chuck was always the life of the party and kept everyone laughing and on their toes.  He always loved riding his horses and enjoyed hunting.  He truly loved all his family, especially his children and grandchildren.
