Listen to the Obituary
Ronald Douglas Beshears, age 73, of Somerset, Kentucky, went to be with the Lord on Friday, October 9, 2020 at Hospice of Lake Cumberland.
He was born on March 26, 1947 in Naomi, Kentucky, son of the late Roy and Thelma Walters Beshears.
Ron was a proud member of Parkers Mill Road Baptist Church, where he faithfully and proudly served as Deacon. He served his country in the United States Army, and was stationed in Korea for a time, and later went to work for G.T.E. where he retired as a cable splicer and repairman. Ron loved his Lord, his family, and his church family. He enjoyed spending time with his wife, Juritha, while out driving around admiring God’s creation and “Deer Looking”. He loved the outdoors with a passion for hunting and fishing. He loved spending time with his church family during church socials and fellowships. His favorite Bible verse was Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me”. He was a warrior for the Lord and his life and caring personality shined a bright light on a dark world.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Roger Beshears; his grandmother Cora Walters, grandfather, Jim Beshears, and grandmother Alta.
