Danny "AC" Beery, age 69, Richey, MT
Danny “AC” Beery, age 69, was born on January 15, 1945 in Bedford, Iowa. Two years later he and his family moved to the family farm west of Richey. Danny died in the house he was raised in just 67 years later on March 22, 2014.
Funeral services were held at 1 pm, March 26, 2014 at the Methodist Church in Richey with Pastor White, a long time friend, officiating.
Interment was held at the farm west of Richey. It was Danny’s desire to be buried on the farm he loved.
At an early age, Danny met Clarice Knudson and married his high school sweetheart. They were married on June 16, 1965. Together they raised two sons, Rondel and Jess.
Danny’s days began with a cup of coffee outside on his swing, and his long days ended on that same swing with a Miller Lite.
Danny will be known for his conservative ways, his work ethic, his sense of humor, his love for life, his farm, and the passion he had for his boys and grandkids. Life on the farm never came easy. Hail in the 70s and drought in the 80s taught him to be a very conservative man. During hard times, Danny did whatever it took to make a living, and he never complained. He spent five years in the oil field until he had a life changing accident.
Danny taught his boys how to farm; they asked for his advice, they treasured it, but because of the inherited Beery stubbornness, they occasionally used very little of it. Being in the same field at the same time with his entire family meant the world to him. He was a welder, a mechanic, a carpenter, and an engineer. If he could build it, he wouldn’t buy it. His welding left him with no fingerprints, his mechanical ways left him with knots on his head, his carpentering left him with no fingernails, and his engineering left him with a completely wrecked semi at the bottom of the dam. Even with a few small failures, he led a very prosperous life. He was a good farmer, a very talented man, and one hell of a good father.
Danny loved every chance he got to have his family together. Any company he ever had, when leaving, he gave them a “be good” or “see you later” and then waited at the end of the sidewalk until they were out of sight.
He had a love for animals. The deer and pheasants in his yard, baby calves, his twenty cats, and his best friend, Toes, his dog, were among just a few.
Danny will be missed terribly by the family he dearly loved.
Danny was proceeded in death by his parents, Harold (Peck) AC Beery and Frances Irene Beery.
Danny is survived by his wife, Clarice Beery of Richey; two sons, Rondel (Lanette) Beery of Richey, MT and Jess (Angie) Beery of Circle, MT; five grandchildren, Danielle (Seth) Servais, David Beery, Brett Beery, Bryce Beery, and Alysia Beery; Siblings Sharon (Norm) Wilson of Blackhawk, SD, Dick (Phyllis) Beery of Circle, MT and Tom (JoAnn) Beery of Hazen, ND; and numerous nieces and nephews.
