Obituary for Dr. John Beebe

February 4, 1942 - October 22, 2018
Holland, Michigan | Age 76


Dr. John Beebe, age 76, son of the Rev. John & Minnie Beebe, passed away on Monday, October 22, 2018.

John's family feels so blessed to have been able to celebrate John's life together in the past couple of weeks.

John had a unique sense of humor. If you didn't laugh at his joke at first, you would get it later. He had a strong sense of character, believed in and did what was right and was a member of Pillar Church of Holland. John was strong on the outside yet gentle on the inside. He taught at Calvin College for 37 years, was well read and enjoyed engaging in a deep scientific conversation. He deeply love his wife and family and will be dearly missed by them.

John is survived by his wife of 55 years, Thea; son, Peter & Katie Beebe and their children, Michael, Persephone, Stellan, Anastasiya,; daughter, Janna & Joseph Ortiz, and their children, Madison, Mason, Olivia, Eva, Caleb, Arabella; sister, Edna Greenway; brother-in-law, William & Willa Beckman; and many nieces and nephews.

The family will conduct a private service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given in John's honor to the John & Thea Beebe Scholarship Fund at Calvin College, 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
