     Wally was born in Owosso, Michigan on June 17, 1961, the son of Herbert Jr. and Sharon (Case) Beeman.  He graduated from Ovid-Elsie High School with the class of 1979, where he pursued his love for all things mechanical.  On December 8, 2019, Wally married Christine Kay Koski Cross at Owosso Church of Christ. They attended the Owosso Church of Christ.

     While in high school, Wally began working the family farm. He enjoyed crop farming and raising cattle. The farm is where he developed his mechanical skills. He liked to fix cars and old tractors. He also had his own shop and worked for Michigan Cat for the last 25 years.

     He could never sit still; he always needed to be doing something. He enjoyed hiking, kayaking and camping. Wally had a gift for home renovations and building. He remodeled several homes for family. During his illness he would watch YouTube videos when he wasn't able to do things himself.  Wally was always looking for the next "good deal."

     He is survived by his wife Christine; son Samuel Beeman of Owosso, MI; step-son Anthony (Sierra Benner) Cross of Elkhart, IN; three grandchildren: Paiycen, Kieran, and Lain; brother John (Marsha) Beeman, and two nieces: Kathryn and Emily.  He was preceded in death by his mother Sharon O'Dell, father Herbert Beeman, Jr. and grandparents Herbert and Marguerite Beeman, Sr.
