Roger Carl Beaverson, 85, of Belle Center, passed away Friday afternoon, March 15, 2024, at Dublin Methodist Hospital.

Roger was born in Fayette, Ohio, on October 19, 1938, to the late Carl and Grace (Zuvers) Beaverson.  He was also preceded in death by his brother Russell Beaverson.

Roger married Brenda Sullivan on April 28, 1967, at the Belle Center United Presbyterian Church, and she survives.  He is also survived by their children: daughter Sheri Lynn (Steve) Deerhake of Columbus, sons Gregory James (Wendy) Beaverson of Woodstock, and Derin Carl (Mayla) Beaverson of Rushsylvania; five grandchildren: Gracie, Megan, Emily, Henry, and Maya Beaverson; five sisters: Doris Leininger of Quincy, Michigan, Carol Pfund of Wauseon, Mary Ferris of Morenci, Michigan, Mabel Hudson of Delta, and Glenda Towers of Fayette. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

A veteran of the US Army, Roger served in Korea during the Vietnam Era.   After moving from northwest Ohio to Belle Center in 1965, Roger worked at the Herald-Voice newspaper for many years.  He was a member of and deacon at the Belle Center United Presbyterian Church, a member of the American Legion Willard Stout Post 266 in Belle Center, and a co-founder of the Murray Griffin Memorial Park, also in Belle Center. Roger was a fan of all sports, but especially loved baseball. He attended the George Barr Baseball Umpire School in Lakewood, FL and from there went on to umpire in the Minor Leagues for a time. He enjoyed following the University of Cincinnati Bearcats football and basketball programs as well as the Cincinnati Reds. Roger loved pets, and always insisted on having a house dog or cat as well as many outside. After retiring from Honda in 2004, he very much enjoyed driving for his friends in the Belle Center Amish community. After his daughter's diagnosis of Lupus SLE, Roger organized and hosted an annual Lupus Golf Outing fundraiser for many years.
