January 10, 1953 ~ November 28, 2023 (age 70) 70 Years Old


Billy David Beavers was born January 10, 1953 to Enease and Leslie Beavers in Joliet Illinois. He was one of five siblings.

David grew up on Kiep Avenue on the south end of Joliet. He graduated from Joliet Central High School and received his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. After graduating from college, he moved to the East Coast where he spent the remainder of his life.

In 1977, David married the love of his life, Victoria Edwards and together they had two daughters, Jennifer and Jazzmyn Beavers. Most men long for a son, but to David, no son could make him any prouder than his two girls. He loved being with his children and his family. He loved all children, especially his nieces and nephews whom he treated as if they were his own children.

David favorite things to do were bike riding and spending time with all the kids. He took his kids, nieces, and nephews to Dorney Park in the summer, sledding in the winter, fishing in the fall, and sightseeing in the spring. He loved taking road trips, listening to jazz music in the basement on his surround sound system, playing his saxophone, socializing at the racetrack, and playing cards with his friends.

David is mostly remembered for being a loving, kind, funny, and a blunt speaking man, who was loved and admired by everyone he came in contact with.

David is preceded in death by his parents, Enease and Leslie Beavers; his beloved wife, Victoria Beavers; three brothers, James Molton, Leslie Beavers, and Kenny Beavers.

David leaves to celebrate his life and cherish his memories: his brother and sister-in-law, Larry Beavers and Cathy Beavers; two daughters, Jennifer Beavers and Jazzmyn Beavers; his most cherished grandson, Jacob Beavers; his newborn granddaughter, Jordyn Parrish; his later life partner, Cynthia Decourcey; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends.
