Family Owned And Operated By The Turner Family Since 1938


Jack Rogers Beard
September 24, 1930 - May 21, 2022

Jack Rogers Beard, Sr., 91, of Godley, went home to his Heavenly Father on May 21, 2022. Jack, “Gran,” was born on September 24, 1930 in Viewpoint, Texas to Francis Marion and Bennie (Alcina) Beard. Jack married Mary Frances (Sanders), his sweetheart and eternal companion of 70 years, on April 18, 1952, in Jones Creek, Texas. They were sealed for time and eternity September 4, 1962 in the Mesa Arizona LDS Temple.

Jack and Mary lived most of their married life in Brazoria, Texas, where they raised 5 children. Jack was a man defined by his commitment to Mary, his family and his work. An ironworker by trade, his talents contributed to structures from skyscrapers to local burger joints. Jack’s work ethic made a great impression on his coworkers and on each family member.

Even in retirement, Jack was never satisfied sitting still. His children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren remember him always working on something…car engines, washing machines, swing sets, and his incredible garden. It is safe to say that Gran built or contributed to the building of “something” at each family member’s home. Whether hauling grandkids up and down I-45, pre-dawn fishing trips, or teaching kids to drive while sitting on his lap, Jack, Daddy, Gran, was to the end, a loyal family man. He had an unflinching moral compass and little tolerance for wrongdoing. Sheer decency and integrity are words that may confidently be used to describe him.

Jack served with the Headquarters and Services Company 185th Construction Battalion during the Korean War from April 1953 through May 1954. He was an Army Water Treatment Specialist and held the rank of Technical Sergeant. His awards included the Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and Good Conduct Medal. He also received from the country of South Korea the Korean War Service Medal. Mary, to this day, remembers the difficulty of this separation.

Jack is survived by his wife, Mary Frances Beard of Godley; sons Jack Rogers Beard, Jr. and wife Fay of Angleton, and Joshua Stephen Beard and wife Irma of Clute; daughters Amanda Robyn McDonald and husband John of Godley, Mary Kathleen Goodrich and husband Mike of Godley and Patricia JoAnna Collida and husband Steve of Bailey; sisters Ruby Bridges and Betty Jean Holcomb of Cooper; grandchildren Jack Rogers Beard III and wife Allison of League City, Jarrett Beard of Angleton, Jared Treesh and wife Abby of Cleburne, Tara McKittrick and husband Matt of Godley, Jody McCauley and wife Leah of Godley, Kaitlin Wallace and husband Jonathan of Gilmer, Mikala Marchel and husband Tanner of Godley, Cody McDonald of Godley, Carly Collida of Dallas, Abby Collida of Nashville, Lindsay Beard and Lauren Beard of Los Angeles; great grandchildren Jack Rogers Beard IV, Mary Elle and Eden Treesh, Meritt McKittrick, Koda and Kalvin McCauley, Savannah, Natalie, Henry, Madalyn, Hailey, and Allison Wallace, and Palmer Marchel.
