Obituary of Allen W. Beaman

Allen Winfield Beaman Lifelong Madison resident, dedicated husband, father, grandfather who was an avid sports fan Allen Beaman, 94 years old, passed away peacefully on February 10th, 2020. Allen was born on Thanksgiving Day November 26, 1925 in his childhood home on Main Street in Madison. Allen, who lived his entire life in Madison, graduated from Madison High School in 1943. He was a three-sport varsity letterman and was the recipient of the Robert Bradley Award, still given out annually to the best senior athlete. After graduation, he enrolled in Panzer College (later to become Montclair State University). Allen left college to serve in the Navy during WWII where he rose to the rank of Hospital Apprentice 1st Class. After the war, Allen worked with his father running F.R. Beaman & Son auto body shop on Main Street in Madison eventually taking over the reins completely upon his Dad’s retirement. It was at this time his best friend, Sal Luciano, introduced Allen to the woman of his dreams – Mary Luciano. Married on Labor Day 1953, Allen and Mary would go on to enjoy over 66 years of blissful marriage that resulted in them raising five children together. A devoted husband and father, he rarely missed a school event of his children and was present every night at the dinner table. He loved to play golf with his friends on Sunday excursions to the Poconos as well as with his sons. He also was a big outdoorsman who enjoyed skiing and camping with family, especially in the Cox Campers he sold out of his auto body shop. In addition to being an active sportsman, he was an avid fan of the New York Giants, Mets and Knicks. Allen was known to his family and friends as a kind and selfless person, the one they could count on to help them regardless of the circumstances. He was everyone’s “fixer upper”, hired driver or just simply the guy to go to for advice. Allen is predeceased by his son Robert, his parents Fredrick and Mildred Beaman, his in-laws Patsy and Hazel Luciano, his brother Fredrick, his sister Elizabeth Hart, his niece Johanne Doherty, and his brother-in-law Sal Luciano. He is survived by his devoted wife of 66 years Mary Elizabeth, his sister-in-law Anne Luciano (wife of Sal Luciano), his brother-in-law Pat Luciano and his wife Eileen, his children Mary Ellen, Helen, William (and his wife Noreen) and Daniel (and his wife Kim). Allen was the loving grandfather to Elizabeth, Emily and Jack as well as an uncle to many nieces and nephews that he treated as his own kids. He will be missed by all those he touched during his life. He was truly one of a kind. Funeral service will be held at St Vincent’s Martyr Church in Madison, NJ on Saturday February 15th at 10:00am. Visitation will be held on Friday February 14th from 4-8pm at Burroughs, Kohr & Dangler Funeral Home 106 Main St Madison, NJ 07940.
