Cleo Harris Beaird passed away early Tuesday morning, November 8, 2017. Dad would have been 100 this coming May 10th, 2018. He was born in Wheeling, Missouri to his parents Arlie Eli and Gertrude Beaird. Mom preceded him in death as well as his parents and Brothers Leland, Lloyd and Howard and nephew Lee. Dad and Mom moved to Kansas City, during the war. Dad owned several motels and apartment buildings. He found his true love in building custom made homes for people. He was a man full of compassion, love and integrity.He always had a smile on his face. I retired at 51 and insisted my parents move in with me. It was the biggest joy of my life. Dad was a member of the Christian Church. Throughout his life he put his family foremost and was a truly great father. Dad is survived by his son, Bob Beaird and wife Sharon; his daughter, Pam Beaird. Also, grandchildren Sheri and Brian; two great grandchildren, Hank and Gus. He is also survived by two nieces Linda and Nancy and nephew Lyle Beaird. Dad became very ill in May, his granddaughter Sheri would come to see him often. Dad would light up every time he saw her and stay that way for days after. I will always love her for that.
