  1. I will always remember him calling me doodles. I will miss Papaw Richard. Love to all the family.

  2. I am so sorry for your family’s loss… Pastor Beach to me was the best years I had at Alto Baptist. He was a gentle soul. Who I believed loved unconditionally. He is now catching up with one of my favorite forever friends. Richard Beach but to me will always be Dickey. Love your family.

  3. Sending prayers and hugs to your family. He was a true inspiration. Sunday morning church at the reunion were special.

  4. Pastor Beach was an example for me in many ways…many prayers of thankfulness were spoken because of your families kindnesses!
    And most of all I came to know Abba because of Alto Baptist church and my precious Momma.
    What blessed memories…thank you!
