Bennie Leon Beuhler
1949 - 2019
Bennie Leon Beuhler, age 69, passed away on May 29, 2019. He was born in Beaumont, TX on August 1, 1949 to John William Beuhler and Bennie Lee McCauley Beuhler.
Full of life and very accepting, Bennie encompassed the fact that you loved to hate him. Loving to pick, his fun-loving personality enjoyed riling others up and getting on their nerves, but at the same time would help anyone. His eclectic character, harmonized a perfect combination of charity and eccentricity, earning him the sentiment often repeated of him that he was “your favorite family member, and your least favorite family member, at the same time”. He believed in people and in love. No matter how much he picked, his actions bore witness to his belief that “God is love”, and this love had a bedding ground in the heart of every person. Bennie was always honest and loving to his family; “Paw Paw Bennie” wanted to be known as “the cool Grandpa” and accomplished this with grandkids, who often referred to him as their “best friend”. He loved fishing, hunting, muscle cars, guns and loud rock n roll music, though he was especially fond of hugs from any lady willing. Benny always had a special place in his heart for his babies, his dogs “Milo” and “Tulip”. As the owner of his own tackle shop “Quality Tackle”, he would repair rods and reels. Often impulsive and a “bull in a china cabinet”, with his big personality came a big, caring heart. Many knew of his questionable driving skills, and a car ride with Bennie was a nerve-wracking experience to the point of wishing that a blindfold had been provided beforehand. Those who knew him well, knew him as one of the funniest people in their lives. His loud, easily recognizable laugh was accompanied by an incomparable Gift of Gab, and whether you wanted to hear it or not, Bennie would say it anyway. History and politics were both passions dear to his heart. His love for our 45th President was in high doubt, and in fact, some would say that it was Donald Trump that finally killed him. Bennie’s passion for life and heart of love for his family left many memories that will be forever cherished; “The most stable genius” his loved ones ever met, will be missed.
Left to honor his memory are numerous family and friends, including his sister, Loretta Howard.
Bennie is preceded in death by parents and brother, John Beuhler Jr.
Visitation with family and friends will be 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., Saturday, June 1, 2019, at Lumberton Family Funeral Home, 766 S. Main St. Lumberton, TX 77657. Bennie’s life honoring memorial service will immediately follow at 4:00 p.m., also at the funeral home, with his son, Jason Buehler, officiating.
