Obituary

The Lord saw fit to embrace Mike “Buzz” Beedham, 41, of Little Rock, Arkansas in July 2021.

Born in Alabama, raised and baptized in Christ in Pensacola, FL, Mike was a man of adventure.  Whether leaping from Army airplanes, disposing of explosive devices, maintaining silence in a Thai monastery, tutoring needful children, or working on the front lines of the pandemic as a respiratory therapist at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock, Mike had a thirst for life and a heart of compassion.

He is survived by his wife Elizabeth Dawn Drinkwater-Beedham, his mother Jean and stepfather Juan Moreno, his stepmother Coral Beedham, and three siblings: brother Jeff and wife Tau Beedham and niece Brooke, brother Jonathan and wife PK Beedham and nephew Jasper, and sister Miranda and husband Scott Echols.  Other survivors include uncle Roger Beedham, aunt Kathleen and husband Jim Bradford, cousins Kim and husband Todd Hensley, Amy and husband Alex Van Pelt, little cousins Emma and Elizabeth Van Pelt, and a host of extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by beloved father Michael Beedham and beloved grandfather Ralph Jewell.

In lieu of flowers, please give generously to Urban Promise Arkansas.  Online donations can be sent via UrbanPromiseArkansas.org , and checks can be made to UrbanPromise and sent to PO Box 1157, North Little Rock, AR 72115.
