Dickie was the second of three children to Raymond and Carolynn (Rock) Beebe.  He enlisted in the United States Marine Corp at  the age of 19 and proudly served ten years with two tours in Vietnam. He humbly earned several medals.

He worked for FH Kingsley, turning wrenches, until he started his own business in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning repair. In 1986, Dickie went to work for Whitehall Plywood until he retired, although he never truly retired. He was known as a ‘work-aholic’ and tinkered with anything that had a motor, just like his father. Dickie was a Life Member of the Whitehall American Legion Post #83 and a member for fifty years.

Including his treasured friends Cynthia Ferguson and Leslie ‘Bomber’ Marr. Dickie very much enjoyed real country music, playing his guitar and DJing, riding his motorcycle, being with family and friends, and working.

Visitation was held from 10am-2pm on Sunday June 9, 2019, at the Jillson Funeral Home Inc., 46 Williams Street, Whitehall, NY.  A Committal Service with full military honors was conducted by Whitehall American Legion Post 83,  following the visitation in the Greenmount Cemetery, with the Deacon Robert Wubbenhorst officiating.  A celebration of remembrance at the American Legion Post #83 on Main Street, Whitehall, NY, followed the committal.
