Kenneth Beecham

March 2nd, 1961 - September 20th 2019

On March 2nd 1961 Kenneth (Kenny )Darryl Beecham was born the second child of the late David Beecham and Marilyn Beecham at Kaiser Hospital in Oakland California. Kenny was christened as a baby and believed that his savior was Jesus Christ. Kenny attended Jefferson Elementary School in Oakland, Thornton Junior High School and American High School in Fremont, California. By age 7 Kenny began his love affair with baseball in Little League.

In 1988 he united in matrimony with Teresa Hinkle which resulted in the birth of their daughter Danielle Evette. In 1996 he united in matrimony with Marylou Marques which resulted in the births of two daughters Breeana (BB) and Kolbie-Golden. He also became the step-father of Alissa and Brandon Marques.

Kenny's entrepreneurial spirit led him to many facets in life. His most recent endeavor was fulfilled shortly before his passing. His love for baseball followed him throughout his life. He played on an All-Star regional baseball team and was the proud owner of a championship ring. It would be remiss to omit that he hit a homerun at his very last at-bat. Kenny had many friends and was both easy going and outgoing. He truly made friends everywhere he went. Kenny was as well known for his sense of humor and luminous smile as he was for his devotion to family.

Kenny is preceded in death by his father David Beecham. He leaves behind his mother Marilyn Beecham-Hood and step-father Hari Hood. He also leaves behind his three daughters Danielle, BB and Kolbie-Golden, his step-children Alissa and Brandon, his grandchildren Charlotte and Savanna, his brothers Lionel and Timothy(Gina), his sister Kimberly(Roderick), his step-brothers Lenoris, Erik, Jamari(Tiwanna), and Hari Jr. In addition to immediate family he leaves behind a host of cousins, four nieces, a nephew and also his partner Shannon Joyner and her son's.
