Robert Beamon Sr.

November 27, 1942 — October 16, 2021

Beamon, Robert Willie Sr.
The life, love, service, and devotion to Almighty God, came to an end for P.G.M. Robert Willie Beamon Sr. on Saturday, October 16, 2021.

Robert was born on November 27, 1942, to Willie and Rosa Beamon in Davisboro, Georgia. He is survived by his wife, Delois Beamon; sister, Minister Gladys White and his brother, Dr. William H. Bell Sr.; his children, Robin D. Williams, Robert W. Beamon Jr., and daughter-in-law, Tawnie C. Beamon, and stepdaughter, Brenda Alexander; his seven grandchildren, Nathan M. Williams Jr., Brandon A. Williams, Nia C. Williams, Cameron D. Williams, Dillion J. Williams, Khalil W. Beamon, and Ajai N. Beamon and step grandson, LaBar Alexander; and nineteen nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by three sisters, Mamie L. Beamon, Elizabeth Hampton, Rev. Dr. Betty Todd and two brothers, Willie J. Beamon, and Willie R. Beamon.

He graduated from Jones High School, Orlando, Florida, in 1961. He received his B.S. and M.S. Degrees in Police Science from the University of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Early in his youth, Robert demonstrated an innate ability to serve and lead others. He was district president of the Richard Allen Youth Council in the A.M.E Church. He was State Secretary of the New Farmers of America.

He enlisted and served in the United States Air Force from September 1962 to September 1982 as a Security Police Officer. During this period, he served in the following locations: Korea; Germany; The Philippines; Turkey; Vietnam; Greece; Okinawa; Montana; Texas; Missouri; and New Mexico.

After retirement from the Air Force, he became employed by and retired from Sandia National Laboratories as a Security Officer.

He served numerous positions within the Masonic organization. The highlights were: Worshipful Master of the Washington Jurisdiction; Most Worshipful Grand Master of the New Mexico Jurisdiction; Sovereign Grand Inspector General Emeritus of the United Supreme Council Southern Jurisdiction; The Order of the Knights Templar and the Royal Arch Masonry.

We thank God for His Grace and His Mercy that He should have loved Robert enough to have reached down into the humble, government project home of a poor and poorly educated (4th grade), widowed, Black mother and molded her son, Robert, into a national and internationally known leader of men. Robert's life was a life well-lived. Nothing and nobody but a living, loving God could have made that so. To God Be the Glory.
