Brian Comstock Beach completed his earthly journey on October 28, 2022 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 18 days earlier.
Brian was born on June 8,1954 to Clara Comstock Beach and John Herbert Beach in Toledo Ohio. The family moved to Louisiana where Brian grew up in New Orleans. Brian was an All American diver in high school where he held several records. He attended Tulane University on a diving scholarship where he was also named a college All American and competed with several Olympic athletes. He cherished his time at Tulane.
After graduation he began his career in Dallas,Texas with National ChemSearch as a salesman selling industrial and commercial maintenance products. He spent his career selling and often prided himself that he “could close the deal.” His career took him to Indianapolis where he met the love of his life, Pamela Ross. They married in 1982 and had just celebrated 40 years of joyful marriage in July. They were blessed with a son Parker. Brian spent most of his career in West Palm Beach, Florida. The family moved to Canton, Georgia in 2007 to be closer to extended family. He was promoted into management, but quickly realized he loved selling and went back to sales and training salesmen. He retired in 2021.
He had a love of adventure and enjoyed taking long weekend rides on his motorcycle (even though it drove his mother crazy with worry)! When he wasn’t cruising the Georgia roads, you could find him tinkering around the house and yard. He could fix almost anything and everyone in the family called him when there was an issue.
Brian and Pam were devoted to their church; their calling was particularly focused on the homeless community in Canton. They both worked with the homeless and served many meals and coordinated many outreach events for the homeless.
Brian is preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents. He is survived by his parents, Clara and John Beach and his adored wife Pam and his son Parker, his sister Brenda Beach White and her husband Robert, his brother Brandon Beach and his
wife Shuntel, and his sister Brooke Beach Taylor and her husband Monty. Brian is survived by his nieces Melissa White Smulyan (Brandon) and Courtney Beach Clark (David), Chandler Taylor and nephews Marshall Comstock White (Amy) and Hunter Beach and Montgomery Taylor (Regina) He is also survived by grand nieces Shelton, Clara, Reagan, Lyla and Madison and grand nephews Hudson and Miles.
The week before his unexpected death he was ready “to close the deal” and meet his Maker. He spoke to his family members and confidently and courageously said goodbye and reassured them that he knew “what awaited him in Heaven and did not fear death.” He was ready for his homecoming. He has passed to GLORY!
The family wishes to thank Leonard Akers, their pastor, for standing in the gap with them, as well as Dr. Scott Beach for his dedicated love and support. The family is grateful to all the doctors, nurses, and aides at Cherokee Northside Hospital for their care of Brian.
A memorial service will be held at Liberty Hill Church, 225 Reformation Pkwy, Suite #202, Canton, Georgia on November 13th at 5 pm. A reception and celebration will be held after the service; Brian requested “leave your ties at home and come and celebrate!”
