David was a member of Fairview Baptist Church where he loved to cook and serve, whether in the church or community ministries. He previously was a member at both Loveland Baptist Church and Beaver Dam Baptist Church.

He graduated from Holston High School where he was a standout in football and wrestling, and continued to enjoy golf for his entire life.

I will forever remember Beasley for his perpetual smile and positive attitude. He was a mentor to so many young men that came and went over the years at Liberty Mutual - I was one of them 20 years ago. Fortunately through the Cold Beer Classic annual golf outing I got to spend time with Dave outside of work. So saddened his physical body has left us but his spirit is with us. Until we reunite God Bless you Dave as you enjoy the ultimate Glory.

Love you man - Varn
