The family of Pastor J.W. Beachum would like to wish him a Happy 95th Birthday! He is a World War II veteran; great husband to the beautiful wife, Lurlean Beachum, of 60 years; and the father of 10 children, with a great number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He has been the pastor of Cameron Chapel COGIC in Mexia for more than 50 years with the help of loving wife. Pastor J.W. Beachum has been a great inspiration and mentor to many people, not only because he has never allowed his blindness for more than 70 years to hinder him from achieving his goals, but also because of his great faith in God. Pastor J.W. Beachum is also a mechanic whose favorite time is working on old cars, rebuilding transmissions. His other hobbies include: playing the guitar, fishing, and early morning workouts. Pastor J.W. Beachum is being honored by his family on Aug. 13. Please feel free to honk your horn if you’re driving by his home on East Palestine between 5 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13.
