Dennis Edward Beyerlein September 24, 1956 - May 2, 2018

Mr. Dennis Edward Beyerlein, 61, of Horn Lake, MS passed away Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis, located in Memphis, TN. He held many positions while working for Guardian Fiberglass, where he was employed for thirty plus years. For the past two years, he was employed at Stella Jones as an administrative assistant. He had an extremely strong work ethic and took pride in the work he did. Mr. Beyerlein was an absolute die hard Ole Miss football fan. He enjoyed fishing and camping, as well as watching old westerns and television shows and playing cards with family and friends. His faith was extremely important to him and he stayed true to his morals and religion. Mr. Beyerlein never met a stranger and loved every person he came into contact with. First and foremost, he was a family man whom cherished and adored his wife above all else. He loved his family, and especially his granddaughters or the “grand girls” as he called them. He was a proud pawpaw and was definitely their biggest cheerleader with anything and everything they were involved in. Mr. Beyerlein had a remarkable singing voice and when his daughters were younger, he would always sing “Rise and Shine” to them in the mornings when they had friends spend the night. He showed his daughters the definition of how a husband should treat his wife and taught his son how to be that husband. Regardless of the situation, he stood by and supported his family and their decisions. Mr. Beyerlein left his impact on this world and will be remembered for his big hugs, contagious laugh, and infectious smile. His legacy will continue to live on through the many memories he made with family and friends.

Mr. Beyerlein leaves behind his loving wife of forty-two and a half years, Patty Beyerlein of Horn Lake; one son, Fred Beyerlein (Michelle) of Southaven, MS; two daughters, Beth Hall (Dan) of Hernando, MS and Kristen Whitetree (Kelly) of Horn Lake; one brother, David Beyerlein (Cindy) of Frankenmuth, MI; two sisters, Gloria Dennis (Dan) of Saginaw, MI and Rhonda Bray (Barry) of Birch Run, MI; one brother-in-law, Robert Johnson (Jinny) of Adrian, MI; two sister in laws, Charlotte Johnson of Adrian and Kay Johnson of Johnsonville, MI; four granddaughters, Lauren Finimore, Haley Owens, and Maryellen Hall all of Hernando, and Juliet Sharp of Horn Lake. He also leaves behind a host of loving nieces, nephews, and other family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frederick Walter Beyerlein and Margaret Elizabeth Dazey; father and mother-in-law, Charles Johnson Sr. and Annetta Johnson; and brother-in-law, Charles Johnson Jr.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations and memorials in honor of Mr. Dennis Edward Beyerlein, be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (501 St Jude Place; Memphis, TN 38105).

    I am so sorry to hear of the your loss. Death is truly an enemy. (1 Cor 15:26) However, this verse contains the hope that we all look forward to when this enemy “will be brought to nothing.” Until that time, be assured that your pain is shared by many, including God, who makes the promise to “swallow up death forver”. May this hope comfort you in your time of grief.

    Dear Beyerlein Family,

    We were shocked and saddened to hear of Dennis’ passing. Dennis and I were good friends from grade school on and anytime I saw him when he came home to Frankenmuth, we had a great time catching up on everything that was going on in our lives. Our hearts go out to all of you – RIP Dennis

    My condolences to Patty and the entire Beyerlein family. I have many fond memories of growing up in the neighborhood and running in and out of each other’s houses, through the yards and playing games on the vacant lot across the street. May God be with you all and grant you His peace in the days and weeks to come. I know Dennis believed I am but a stranger here, Heaven is my home.

    Dennis is the true definition of a gentleman. I met Dennis back in the early 90’s when I started working at Guardian Fiberglass Insulation, and from that moment on, Dennis wasn’t just a co-worker, he was a mentor, a leader, but most of all my dear friend. I bonded with him instantly and even when things got rough for both of our employment journeys, we remained close and supported each other no matter what path we each took. I got the pleasure of getting to know both the Beyerlein and Johnson family through him and his brother in law Chuck, and even got teased because my last name is Johnson, but no relation. My heart breaks for his entire family, I know the loss I’m feeling, so I can’t even imagine what they are going through. I know I’m going to miss those big bear hugs and that voice that would say “Hi Heather” when we talked on the phone. I’m so very lucky to have met and known him and especially call him my friend.

    The world won’t be the same without Dennis, but he left a wonderful legacy behind and will never be forgotten. He was a good man, and each day of his life showed how much he cared for his family and many friends. Rest in Peace Dennis, and may your family find peace and love in your memory.

    To my cousins, I have loved Dennis deeply since I was 3 years old! I always teased him about being his favorite cousin and he just laughed because he had so many to choose from–but I’ll always consider myself to be on his top 5 list–no matter what! He could be silly and funny, bright and articulate, and as you know, he was always a good time. Your loss is great because he was great. Your faithfulness will become a beacon of light for your healing. May warm hugs surround you and may your hearts be filled with love as you hear the many stories of how Dennis impacted the lives of others. Our love for him is eternal. Blessings to all of you; I love you all so much.
