Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Steven Howard Beadle, age 71

Steven Howard Beadle, 71, of Cabot, Arkansas passed away on January 11, 2023. He was born on February 16, 1951 to the late Therman Beadle and Elsie Pellman Beadle of Cabot.

He is survived by his wife Sharon Ann Beadle, children Barbara Pisciotta (Joe), Melinda Boat (Eric), Julie Roe (Danny), Haven Bucklin (Jason), and Kevin Beadle (Sarah); brother Michael Beadle and sister Shelly Cross (Ray) both of Cabot; grandchildren Mark Roberts (Nicole), Chris Roberts (Rachel), Matthew Boat (Jordyn), Michael Pisciotta, Theresa Pisciotta, Emma Boat, Jordan, Ethan and Christian Roe, Sydney and Silas Beadle; great-grandkids Kayn, Eli, Brantley, Harrison, Theo, Finn, Ivy, and Selah Roberts; and many nieces, nephews, other extended family members and friends.

Steven began a career in land surveying while he was still attending Jacksonville High School where he graduated in 1969. After high school, he continued his passion for surveying. On August 18, 1990, he married the love of his life, Sharon, who helped him run and grow his family business. They grew it into a thriving business which Steven passed on to his son who also became a surveyor. Steven loved his work and his clients. He served his clients throughout the State of Arkansas with dignity and integrity. Steven was a member of the Arkansas Society of Professional Surveyors and a Mason.

Steven battled cancer off and on since 2000. He was a fighter through it all and remained strong, positive, and hopeful. He was a good man; smart, patient, dignified, kind, playful, strong, dependable, loving, adventurous, down to earth, content, and loyal.

Above all, Steven loved his family more than anything in the world. He enjoyed hiking, camping with the kids, car races, Sunday dinners, kid’s baseball games, and fireworks on the hill. He loved movies and had an eclectic taste in music. You never knew what you would hear when you got into the car with him! He and Sharon loved traveling, especially cruises. He was always on the lookout for something beautiful. He loved seeing the flowers that he and Sharon planted in the yard that would come up in the spring.  Steven was so smart and could do anything, fix anything. He was surrounded by family, in the home he built with his own two hands, when he peacefully took his final breath. He lived and loved well. Steven will be loved and missed by all that knew him.

Graveside services will be on Friday January 20, 2023 at 3 PM at Mountain Springs Cemetery off Highway 5 in Cabot, Arkansas.

    So sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. I have known the Beadle family since the late 60’s when Mr. Beadle would come to my dad’s salvage yard & bring his boys with him. Then I reconnected with Steve when I had him survey my land a few times. May God comfort you & you all will be in our prayers.

    Thanks so much for giving my children a lifetime of happy memories growing up. Summer visits meant pool time, bowling and movies. There were hikes with Grandpa and his cool walking stick. Rare is the life where no one you meet has a negative thing to say about you. You were that person. Rest in peace Steve.
