Jerome D. Beckham, 56, of Valparaiso passed away Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at home with his loyal dog “Otto” by his side. He was born March 30, 1960 in Gary, Indiana to Joseph & Deloris (Haigh) Beckham and graduated from Portage High School in 1978. Jerry began his career as a roofer before transitioning to become a master baler with Able/Republic Disposal’s cardboard recycling program for many years. Time spent fishing and gardening were always treasured by Jerry, but following the Cubs bordered on the religious, especially during the winning seasons.  On November 27, 1982 he married Marilyn E. Crouch who survives along with his mother, Deloris Beckham, sisters: Vickie Burke, Kathryn (Terry) Benson, Michelle (Paul) Beausoliel, Theresa King, brothers: Joseph (Pam) Beckham, John (Sue) Beckham, James (Cindy) Beckham, Jay (Meloney) Beckham, brother-in-law, Eugene (Beth) Crouch, II, aunt Patricia Perkins, many loving nieces & nephews and all of the Daugherty family. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Michelle Beckham in 1989, his father, Joseph Beckham, father & mother-in-law, Eugene & Doris “Tona” Crouch , brothers, Jeffery & David Beckham and brothers-in-law: Bob Burke & Michael King. Jerry’s inspirational presence will be dearly missed by all.
Following cremation at Angelcrest Crematory a private family ceremony will be held. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to The Title Fund Account for Marilyn Beckham at Horizon Bank.
