of a two year sabbatical in Chicago to work towards Marc's doctorate,
they remained living in Alaska for the rest of their lives,"

of Nikiski Elementary from 1972 until retiring from the school district
in 1987. Mr. and Mrs. Beauchamp enjoyed international travel and
many hunting and fishing trips with friends and family. "He
was a wonderful host who took great pleasure in entertaining at
his home often cooking dinner for as many as could fit around the
table," his family said. "He will be remembered for his
storytelling, love of the outdoors and contributions to the education
system." Mr. Beauchamp was preceded in death by his wife, Roberta.
He is survived by his daughter, Marcia Beauchamp of California;
son, Keith Beauchamp and his wife, Joann, of Arizona; daughter,
Lane Beauchamp of Kenai; and grandchildren, Sydney Tyler of Kenai,

customers on his route."Billy loved the beauty of Alaska, but

in any situation and always had a smile and a wave for all his friends.

(John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15) and the paradise earth soon to come
(Rev. 21:3,4). His favorite Bible verses were 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,

the way he brought laughter to their lives."Billy is survived
