  2. Oh my heart is just breaking. I had the great pleasure of working with Mr. And Mrs. Beaver. Both had huge hearts, to say the least, and worked tirelessly to help students. Benny always had a smile, regardless of how he was feeling. I remember not too long ago, he stopped me in the hallway to discuss my own health issues. I thought, here is this man, worried about me, and he has his own diagnosis to worry about! His concern for others’ well-being was amazing! He is AMAZING, loved beyond words and will be greatly missed.

  3. Benny will be truly missed by all of us at College Station High School. It was a pleasure having him in my 2nd period class last year. His passion for all things “purple” will be difficult to replace. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

  4. What a blessing and privilege to work with Benny. So kind and thoughtful in everything he did. He loved the students he worked with, and formed relationships with them that extended past their graduation. I celebrate his life, and will be forever grateful that our paths crossed for even a short time.

  5. Mr Beaver was a very special soul and with his loving disposition and caring attitude towards everyone around him. My thoughts and prayers for your family.

  6. My thoughts and prayers are with your family as you go through this difficult time. Benny was such a warm and caring soul with one of the sunniest dispositions of anyone I have ever met. Regardless of the situation at hand he always had a smile and a kind word to share. Although I didn’t know him for long, I am glad that our paths crossed. CSHS was blessed to have him and he will always be remembered. We are sad for our loss, but happy that he has found peace.
    God Bless.

  7. He was one of the best people. We would always talk about rock and roll and other musicians. I looked foward to seeing him everyday and listening to what he had to say. What a truly extraordinary man who really just held high esteem for everyone and everything. I miss him so much, my prayers go to the family.

  8. I did not know Mr. Beaver, but my grandson, Zach, thought the world of him. He helped him at CSHS this year and was an inspiration to Zach. He wanted me to convey his condolences to his family.

  9. Having Mr. Beaver as a neighbor has been like living next door to Mister Rogers. Benny’s smile and friendly driveway visits always made it a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Beyond seeing treasure in the things he collected, he seemed to treasure each person he met. I will miss him, Sandra, and send my heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

  10. Mrs. Beaver, My daughter Destini and I wanted to offer condolences. I truly miss seeing both of you at CSHS. I was so shocked when I heard of Mr. Beaver’s death, but I at the same time glad that he is resting in peace. He was always so loving and kind….I know that this will be a long hard road for you and your family, but God makes no mistakes and will continue to give you all the strength to go through each day. We love you..

  11. So sorry to learn of your lose, Mr. Benny will truly be missed. He attended every one of my estate sales this past year. The minute he walked in he greeted everyone and always had a smile. He would always take time to visit and share his knowledge on special items which was greatly appreciated. My sincere condolences for you and your family, Regina McCurdy/Regina’s Antiques & More

  14. I only knew Benny for a few short years and only saw him once a month when we gathered for our monthly ritual of selling the treasures that we had collected. I feel I had known him all my life. We were kindered spirits in many ways. I will miss him dearly. My heart hurts for his family. So glad I was able to know him.

  15. Deepest sympathy for Benny’s family. I believe he will be received in heaven with open arms. I’ll miss him. Many fond memories. Rest in peace dear friend.

  16. My family would like to offer their deepest sympathies. My son is a sophomore at CSHS, and over time he and Benny developed a lovely friendship. My son was born with a very serious disease, and Benny knew of this and offered his support through friendship and gentle guidance. Benny knew he collected glass paperweights, too, and gifted him a beautiful one just this past year. We will treasure it always. Thank you, Benny. XO

  17. Sending my deepest sympathy to the Beaver family, I have known Ms. Sandra for a very long time and came to know Mr. Benny just recently what a joy it was. This man always had a smile on his face no matter what he was going thru loved his family and wife dearly. He will be truly missed by me and Ms. Sherry. We love you Ms. Sandra

  18. Our Deepest Sympathy for the loss of your Benny, Mrs. Beaver and family. He was always such of a delight to visit with at our auctions and talk about our various “finds” and “sales”. We will miss him very much.

  19. Mr. Benny was an amazing man and will be truly missed. Much love and prayers to his family and we know he is in a much better place. God bless.

  20. Sorry for the family’s loss. We had a lot of good times and I had the good fortune to visit with Benny a few years ago, at that time he was living in Arkansas. I graduated with Jacque, ran around with Wes and Benny, spent a lot of time at the Beaver’s home and worked for their father David at BC. Benny will be missed. RIP Benny.
