In Memory


Thomas Beard


Information provided by Pam Beard, August 18, 2010.


Tom attended drafting school after HS, then served in the Army Reserves, followed by a 45 year career with B. Frank Joy Co.  He worked his way up from Crew Leader to Superintendent and then to Construction Manger for this DC/MD/Va utility contractor.

The last 4 years he was semi-retired and served as Safety Manager, however, his great love was crabbing and fishing on the Bay. He fished and crabbed from the time he was 16.   He obtained a US Coast Guard Captain's license, had a Commercial Tidal Fisheries License and ran charters aboard the "Laidback".  He was the Sec/Treas of the Anne Arundel County Watermen's Association for nearly 3 decades and was instrumental in its gaining a strong membership.

As a dedicated and loving grandfather he attended every football and wrestling practice no matter what.  Who would have thought!
