Eric Beeley was sadly taken away at the age of 82. He was born on 8/7/38 and lived in his home town of Rotherham nearly all his life. He was a devoted husband to his wife Elizabeth and a loving father of 2.
Eric was educated at Spurley Hey Comprehension School and then joined the army, where he was stationed in Germany in the 16/5th Queens Royal Lancers involved with tanks.
On leaving the Army he took up a job as painter and decorator. After few years later his career then took another turn and he ended up working for the steel works where he met Elizabeth Newbold, who he ended up marrying raising 2 sons.
Eric was a long fan of Rotherham United supporting them thru the good times and bad times. Never having a bad word against them and even passing his passion on to his sons.
His other hobbies included painting, cricket, travelling to other counties by coach due to being scared of flying.
He will be remembered for his dry Yorkshire humor, quick wits and always having time to sit with you, even if you was stranger, and chat for hours.
Eric was preceded in death by his beloved Elizabeth. He survived by his 2 sons, Kevin & Darren, and grandchildren
A funeral service will be held on 23RD April 2021,12.30pm at the Rotherham Crematorium
