William Lee Beebe of Marietta, passed on, Friday (Aug. 2, 2013) at the young age of 30 due to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was born on Oct. 7, 1982, in Marietta, to Gary and Rose (Huck) Beebe.
Will is survived by both parents; his sister, Jessica Beebe; brother, Luke (Courtney) Beebe; and nephews, James and Dean. The grandson of Eileen Beebe, and nephew of Marcia (Jim) Johnston, Robert (Rhonda) Huck, Mark (Sandy) Huck, Anna (Jim) Schaad, Carolyn (Kenny) Evec, Mary (Gary) Nagy, Will is preceded in death by his grandparents, Wilford and Clare Huck, grandfather, Kenneth L. Beebe, and uncle, Ron Beebe. Will is also survived by several cousins and a countless amount of friends.
Will touched so many lives with his outgoing and caring personality, and although his life was cut short, he will always be remembered by his family and friends. Will was never afraid to speak his mind, state his opinion, or stand up for a friend. Will was bigger than life, both figuratively and literally, and he could brighten any room with his presence. Will loved Ohio State Football, playing his drums (in his parents' opinion much too loud), his old mopars, and motorcycles. In addition, Will was an avid animal lover, and had a special place in his heart for his dogs, Tugger and Nita, and cat, Johnny Cash.
Visiting will be held from 3 until 8 p.m. on Wednesday (Aug. 7, 2013) at Cawley & Peoples Funeral Home in Marietta.

There will be a Vigil Service at 8 p.m. on Wednesday at the funeral home.
