Roy F Beyeler
The Montpelier Examiner, December 2, 1943
T/Sgt Roy F Beyeler, 24, son of Mr. and Mrs. C R Beyeler of Fish Haven was killed in action November 18 somewhere in the Pacific, according to information received Wednesday by his parents from another son, Captain Lynn C Beyeler of the Marine Corps, stationed in San Diego; who in turn had been informed by Mrs. Roy Beyeler who works at Hill Field.
Sergeant Beyeler a gunner on a Liberator, had seen much action in the Pacific. At one time he had been hospitalized for a leg injury sustained in crack-up. An account of one mission over Jaluit on November 15 coincidentally appears on page nine of this issue. Sergeant Beyeler was born October 7, 1919 in Fish Haven. He graduated from Fielding high school and Ricks college at Rexburg. He entered the service in early October 1941 shortly after taking a position as a teacher in Blackfoot.
Surviving, in addition to his widow and parents, is one sister, Mrs. Theodore Aguirre of Ogden; and four brothers, Captain Lynn C Beyeler, who saw extended action on Guadalcanal; Lieutenant Earl Beyeler, bombardier in the Air Corps, stationed at Tampa Florida; Seth and Maylor Beyeler, both of Fish Haven. Location or circumstances leading to his death while in action were not included in the announcement.
This brings the total to seven Bear Lake county men who have met death from one cause or another during the war. The others are William O Evans of Montpelier, Doc C Hall of Bennington, Warren N Jensen of Fish Haven, Elwood Lindsay of Dingle, Cecil Shirley of Fish Haven and Lund C Stucki, formerly of Paris. Other causalities include these five prisoners of war: Russell Hayes of Georgetown, Gen Jacobsen, Lewis Muldenhauer, Keith W Rich and Glenn Seewer all of Montpelier and one missing in action, Oneal Linford of St Charles.
