David Beach, Sr. Obituary

It is with profound sadness to announce the passing of David “Dave” Lee Beach, Sr., of Myrtle Beach, SC. He died at the age of 70, unexpectedly, after a brief illness on January 22, 2024, with his family by his side.

Dave served his country for over 20 years with honor and valor as a proud member of the United States Army (retired). Following his military career, he transitioned into civilian life, where he taught High School ROTC and ran a construction company before going back to his airborne roots as the Director of Maintenance for various helicopter shops throughout the years.

He was an amazing man that touched the lives of everyone he knew, and he will be greatly missed.
