John was president of Cohn High class of ‘55! As such he was always devoted to the class sponsor, Margaret Kerr Dinkerley. She was my mother! After the lost of her second husband. John became as much my brother ( I was an only child)
John and Dot went to visit every Sunday after Sunday school! He took care of my mama as if she were his mother!! John Beamer was the epitome of a good man!!
He was couteous, kind..a dedicated postal worker and a devoted father and husband!! I suspect he was loved and respected by every human being he was in contact with. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on!
