BEAN, Samuel Anthony

"Retired Coal Miner Fatally Hurt By Auto- Samuel Anthony Bean Dies In Hospital As Result Of Injuries-
Returning with ice cream for his grandchildren, a 65-year-old Barton man was fatally injured on State Route 36 in Barton Wednesday night near his home.  Samuel Anthony Bean, who retired in June after working with the Shuhart Coal Company in Barton, died early yesterday morning in Miners Hospital, Frostburg.  He was struck by an auto driven by Donald Lawrence Hawn of RD 1, Frostburg, who had been discharged from the Army at Fort Meade Wednesday at 4 p. m.
Going Out Of Way
Oddly enough, Hawn at the time of the accident was going out of way to take a companion, Charles Morris, also discharged at the same time, to his home in Westernport.  Hawn told County Investigator Edwin R. Lilya and State Trooper Harry Bosley, who are conducting the probe, that he rounded the sharp curve in the west limits of Barton and saw Bean crossing the highway.  Hawn told investigators he swerved to try to avoid hitting Bean, but was not successful.  The car skidded on the wet highway into the guardrails on the opposite side of the road, police said. Bean was carried for a short distance by the Hawn auto.  Hawn then stopped a passing car, and had an ambulance and police summoned.  He stayed at the scene until Bean had been taken to the hospital and Trooper Bosley had arrived, Lilya reported.
Dies In Hospital
Bean died several hours later in Miners Hospital.  He suffered a fractured skull, fractured leg and internal injuries.  Boan had been to a confectionary in Barton and was returning with ice cream for his grandchildren who were visiting his home.  Lilya said the investigation is continuing and no charges have been preferred. Hawn and Morris were with Lilya and Bosley all morning at the state's attorney's office.  Born in Cross, W. Va., the victim was a son of the late John F. and Sarah (Barnhill) Bean.  He had resided in Barton 55 years.  He was a member of St. Gabriel's Catholic Church, Barton.  Besides his wife, Mrs. Carrie (Moffett) Bean, he is survived by four sons, Samuel A. Bean Jr., and James Bean, Lonaconing; John Bean, with the Air Force in Phoenix, Ariz., and Donald Bean, at home.  He also leaves four daughters, Mrs. Martha Rigley, Baltimore; Mrs. Charles Raybuck, Alexandria. Va.; Mrs. James Taccino, Silver Spring, and Mrs. Richard Fram. Froslburg; two brothers, Thomas Bean, Detroit, and Frank Bean, Fort Laudcrdale, Fla., one sister, Miss Margaret Bean, Detroit, and nine grandchildren.  A requiem mass will be celebrated in St. Gabriel's Church, tomorrow at 9:30 a. m. by Rev. Charles Quinn, assistant pastor of St. Peter's Catholic Church, Westornport.  Interment will be in St. Gabriel's Cemetery.  The body is at the residence."

BECKNER, Harry Tayten
 
RAWLINGS — On Dec. 24, Christmas Eve, 2008, Harry Tayten Beckner Jr., 83, of 24023 McMullen Highway, Rawlings, left to meet Jesus and embrace "Ginny" his beloved wife of 57 years. Harry was born on Easter Sunday, April 12, 1925. Harry’s Birthday had fallen on Easter Sunday only two times, 1936 and 1998 since his birth. Harry had hoped to celebrate his next "special" birthday this coming Easter 2009. Harry was born in Westernport, oldest child of the late Harry Tayten Beckner Sr. and Nellie Emma Crable of Kalbaugh Street. Young Harry learned his strong work ethic and trade as a very skilled carpenter at the knee of his dad and granddad Lonnie Beckner. Together the family built many homes in Westernport, homes still standing strong today. The older Beckners taught that "keeping the young ones working would keep them out of trouble." Harry’s skills were a valuable asset to Westvaco "Luke Mill" where he was employed as was his dad before him. Harry retired from the mill in August 1987, after 36 + 3 years of service. Harry was a member of "The Greatest Generation," a World War II veteran serving his country in the U.S. Navy. His service began in Samson, N.Y., and took him to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. He returned home on his 21st birthday. It is of special note that Harry was drafted into the military while a senior at Bruce High School, class of 1944. After discharge from the Navy, Harry returned and completed his senior year at Bruce High School graduating with the class of 1946. He was a member of V.F.W. Post 6775, McCoole, and the American Legion Post 155, Westernport. Departing before him were his parents, Harry and Nellie; his wife, Virginia Elizabeth Corbin, Feb. 21, 2007; his brother, Raymond Beckner in 2001; his nephew, Steven Lunsford in 2006; and cousin, "Beanie" Richard Beckner in 2003. Surviving this greatest loss are his only child, daughter, Patty Kay Wagner Mitchell and husband Gary; two grandchildren, Adrienne Elaine Wagner Goodwin and husband Ray, Tyler Kendall Wagner and wife Lisa; and four great-grandchildren, Krista Marie and Garrett Hunter Goodwin, and Ethan Tyler and Bryson Kendall Wagner. Also surviving are one sister, Shirley Lunsford Duke of Tampa, Fla., her daughter, Pam and family; Harry’s brother Raymond’s children, Joe, Mike, Linda, Janet and Tommy and their families; and Bea Taylor and family of Romney, W.Va. A lasting memory will always remain in the hearts of Harry’s friends and neighbors. They will forever see the familiar scene of Harry always outside the home that he built, caring for the birds, wildlife and his lawn. He was always riding his John Deere mower through the neighborhood on the community street he had paved. He said he was checking on things, fixing things and of course just chatting. Harry’s family will eternally be grateful for his most caring friends Emily, Robert "Red" Brode and his wife Sadie, the very dear and most competent two doctors, Dr. Saheta and Dr. Zaman, and all of the many generous people who donated blood which made it possible for us to have our loved one with us for the last precious years of his life. The Boal Funeral Home, Westernport, is in charge of arrangements, which are in-complete at this time.
