Raymond Joe Beyer, 92, of Beaumont passed away on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. He was born in Mexia, Texas on January 9, 1929. After moving to Beaumont, Texas around 1949, Raymond would begin his career with the Beaumont Police Department. After an accomplished career of more than 32 years, Raymond retired as a Detective from the Beaumont Police Department in 1989. A self-proclaimed “do-it-yourselfer”, Raymond could do anything and taught himself how to in most cases. A quiet man with a good heart, Raymond raised his son Charles to be an honest, hardworking, and well-mannered man just like himself. To say Raymond was a planner would be to deny credit to his wonderful analytical mind; Raymond did nothing without fully thinking out every consequence and benefit and making a well-informed decision. Charles would know this thoughtful trait best as he clearly remembers the months of thinking that went into the new television that he wanted so badly growing up. Raymond could be counted on for anything and truly ruled the roost wherever he was. This wealth of advice, knowledge and love will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Left to cherish his memory is his son, Charles Beyer; family members of his late brother; and his cousins.
Raymond was preceded in death by his parents, Eugene P. and Iva M. Draper Beyer; his wife of 66 years, Virginia F. Boggan Beyer; his infant son, Raymond J. Beyer Jr; and his brother, Eugene P. Beyer Jr.
A time of visitation will be held on Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 1:30PM-2:00PM at Lumberton Family Funeral Home, 766 S Main St. Lumberton, TX 77657 with the funeral service to follow at 2:00PM. Entombment will be at Magnolia Cemetery in Beaumont.
