April 18, 1947 - June 6, 2019
Paul Domby Beaver, beloved husband, father, and friend, passed away on June 6, 2019. Paul, who was known as Dom by family and friends from his youth, was preceded in death by his parents, Virginia Lofland Beaver and James Domby Beaver of Garland, TX; his brother, James Hugh Beaver of Garland, TX; and his son, Scott Markham Beaver of Richardson, TX. He is survived by his wife, Nancy Hutton Beaver of Richardson, TX; daughter, Stephanie Lauren Beaver of Irving, TX; nephews Aaron Scott Beaver of San Antonio, TX, Brian Hutton Reasoner of Tucson, AZ, Carl Lynn Fulton, Jr. of Wills Point, TX, and Joshua Conrad Fulton of North Little Rock, AR; and nieces Rebecca Nicole Fulton of Terrell, TX and Amanda Grace Beaver of Midland, TX.
Paul was born on April 18, 1947, in Houston, Texas. He served in the 254th Mobile Communication Squadron of the Texas Air National Guard stationed in Garland, TX for seven years. He held a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA in Finance from the University of North Texas. Paul was a Licensed Engineer and a Real Estate Broker who loved his work in designing water and drainage systems and environmental and regulatory engineering. One project that he was proud to have worked on was designing bulkheads to recover land that had been washed away by Hurricane Rita and another was an environmental clean-up project of a National Rail Car site.
Paul never met a stranger and was a loyal friend and neighbor. He showed his love and friendship through acts of service like doing yardwork for his neighbors, visiting people in the hospital, and researching helpful information for friends. He had a great sense of humor and would always brighten people’s day with a funny story. He loved being with his family, especially the Lofland clan. Paul loved to remember the years that he, his wife, and his daughter taught Sunday school at First United Methodist Church of Richardson.
Paul was a big Longhorn fan and loved World War II aircraft. He was an active member of the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, Texas Exes, the Longhorn Lunch Bunch, and the Texas Navy. He attended the JFK Lancer Conference annually and dedicated many years to researching the Kennedy assassination. Paul was also active in local, state, and national civic affairs. He has been honored for his patriotism by receiving a flag flown over the US Capitol on D-Day and a Texas Flag flown over the state capital, which will be displayed at his memorial service.
A memorial service for family and friends will be held at 3:00 PM on June 20, 2019, in the chapel of First United Methodist Church of Richardson, 503 N Central Expressway, Richardson, TX, 75080. Per Paul’s wishes, his cremated remains will be inurned in the columbarium at this church on a later date.
