BELBECK, Betty Jean
In memory of my wife, Betty Jean, departed January 11, 2003.
T'was a sailor in blue
That caught her eye
When she said "Yes I Do"
Till the day that I die.
Now I would give my "All"
For just one more dance
In that tiny cafe where we met
Dancing in each others arms
Moments I shall not forget
But God holds you now
In the palm of His hand
For He knows how "Precious" you are.
Each night I look toward Heaven
To see my shining star.
After fifty-six years, I could not love you more. Charlie

BELBECK, Betty
To our Mom and Grandmother, Betty, who left us 2 years ago today, January 11th, 2003.
If roses grew in heaven,
Lord pick a bunch for us,
Place them in our Mothers arms
and tell her they're from us.
Tell her we love and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place our kisses upon her cheek,
And hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy
We do it every day,
But this ache inside our hearts,
Will never go away.
Loved always, Ted, Vicki, Bob, Crystal, Deb and their families.

Man shot by police dies in mental hospital
David BELDMAN was shot in the leg during a confrontation with police in Port Elgin on July 24
By Don CROSBY, Wednesday, August 17, 2005
A man shot in confrontation with police in Port Elgin last month has died in custody at the Regional Mental Health Centre in St. Thomas.
Earlier this month, assistant Crown attorney Brian LINLEY sought a 30-day court-ordered psychiatric assessment of the man, David BELDMAN. LINLEY said he had reasonable grounds to believe BELDMAN may not be criminally responsible because of mental instability.
BELDMAN was remanded until Friday to await a hearing before a Walkerton judge to determine whether he should be sent for assessment.
BELDMAN, who would have turned 24 on August 26, was found unresponsive in his room Tuesday morning at the regional mental health centre and rushed to the local hospital. He was pronounced dead at 11: 35 a.m.
No details were available about the cause of death. A mandatory inquest will be held into the circumstances surrounding his death. An inquest is required by law whenever someone dies in custody.
BELDMAN was shot in the leg after a police officer in Port Elgin fired her weapon in a confrontation with him in the backyard of a Port Elgin residence about 10: 40 p.m. July 24.
Police arrested him about 6 a.m. the next day, then took him to Southampton hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
BELDMAN's lawyer, Grant MacKINNON, objected at a hearing in Ontario Court of Justice in Walkerton on August 4 to a Crown request to file a report from the Canadian Mental Health Association about BELDMAN to justify a psychiatric assessment.
MacKINNON said he found one line in the report “objectionable.&rdquo He did not consent to the report being filed with Justice George BROPHY.
MacKINNON told BROPHY that he didn't believe his client was incapable of instructing counsel. He argued the trial should take place first, followed by an assessment of whether his client is criminally responsible.
BELDMAN had instructed MacKINNON to set a date for trial on the eight criminal charges that he faced.
BROPHY set August 19 for a half-day hearing to determine whether he should order an assessment of BELDMAN's fitness to stand trial. He set no trial date.
BELDMAN was charged with unlawful entry, threatening death/bodily harm, assault while resisting arrest, assault police, assault with a weapon, trespass at night and two counts of breaching probation.

Week Of Remembrance: Ted BEAMENT, Brigadier And Lawyer (1908-2005)
Military strategist's final campaign was to be allowed to live in the same nursing home as his wife of 63 years
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, November 11, 2005, Page S7
He helped plan the Normandy invasion and the liberation of France and the Netherlands, but the final victory in a brilliant military career came at the age of 95 as he battled to be reunited with his wife.
Ted BEAMENT, a retired brigadier, was forced to live apart from Brenda, his Scottish war bride.
His room was in an Ottawa veterans' hospital, while she lived across town in another facility.
Their heartbreaking separation, detailed by the Ottawa Citizen in an article published on Valentine's Day last year, won the couple great sympathy. The BEAMENTs celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary days later while still living at different addresses. They were able to visit only three times a week, while difficulties in hearing made telephone conversations frustrating.
"My mum is weepy and my dad is distressed," their daughter said at the time.
Mrs. BEAMENT was on a waiting list to join her husband at the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre, a delay that the family was told could last from six to 18 months.
Their plight led the War Amps of Canada to launch a national campaign to discover and reunite veterans unwillingly separated from their spouses.
After five months apart, the BEAMENTs were reunited at the Perley in March. They spent 15 precious weeks under the same roof before Mrs. BEAMENT died of causes related to old age. She was 91.
Mr. BEAMENT, who survived his wife by 15 months, enjoyed success in several arenas. He was a national champion as a figure skater, a first-class lawyer named king's counsel, and a decorated military strategist.
Family lore has it that Mr. BEAMENT was conceived in the summer of 1907 aboard a gondola afloat on the Grand Canal of Venice. His parents may well have had romantic notions regarding transportation, as they had met as members of the Bytown bicycle club.
Thomas Arthur BEAMENT was a prominent barrister who, in 1904, would be one of the 16 founding members of the Laurentian Club, formed by those businessmen excluded from other men's clubs because of their lack of social standing. Mr. BEAMENT's wife, Edith Louise BELFORD, had been orphaned at a young age and worked as typist in the civil service. George Edwin BEAMENT, known as Ted, was the youngest of their four children.
Educated at Ottawa Normal School and Lisgar Collegiate, the young man followed his father's demand that he attend Royal Military College, graduating in 1929. The yearbook noted the left sleeve of his cadet's uniform was not long enough to hold all his badges of distinction.
A degree in mechanical engineering was achieved at the University of Toronto two years later. He then attended Osgoode Hall, graduating in 1934, being called to the bar the same year. He was an associate in the family law firm of Beament and Beament.
It was as an engineering student that Mr. BEAMENT teamed with Elizabeth FISHER, Mary LITTLEJOHN and Hubert SPROTT to win the Canadian fours championship in figure skating at a meet at Winnipeg in February, 1930.
Mr. BEAMENT put aside his legal career with the outbreak of war in 1939. As commanding officer, he mobilized and led to England the 2nd (Ottawa) Field Battery, the famed Bytown Gunners whose members would see action at Dieppe and on D-Day. He even borrowed $2,000 from his father to outfit the men.
On Christmas Eve, 1940, he was a guest of a liaison officer for the British artillery who brought the Canadian officer to the family home in Oxford for a holiday meal. There, he met Brenda Yvonne Mary THOMS, a lithe, 27-year-old practitioner of the Dalcroze method of eurythmics, which intensifies the experience of music through movement and physical exertion. He proposed marriage the next day. Her polite rebuff did not deter such a persistent suitor. They married the following February, the bride wearing a silk wedding dress tailored from ivory-coloured curtains.
Many years later, a granddaughter, Ariana BRADFORD, questioned the brevity of the courtship. "Well, there was a war on, you know," Mr. BEAMENT replied. Two children would be born before the end of hostilities, neither, as far is known, conceived in a gondola.
A succession of command and staff appointments provided Ted BEAMENT with a series of promotions and ever greater responsibilities during the war. He was brigade major of the 1st Armoured Brigade in 1941; lieutenant-colonel and commanding officer of the 6th Canadian Field Regiment in 1942; general staff officer, grade 1, of the 4th Canadian Armoured Division, also in 1942; and, general staff officer, grade 1 (operations), of the First Canadian Army in 1943.
On November 14, 1943, he was appointed colonel (later brigadier), general staff, of the First Canadian Army. As such, he was intimately involved in the planning of the D-Day invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944. He helped guide the liberation campaign through northwest Europe, during which Canadian forces often faced fierce resistance from German defenders.
In April, 1945, during the dying days of the Nazi regime, Mr. BEAMENT was based in the Netherlands when the headquarters of the First Canadian Army learned about a prison camp holding Polish women just across the frontier. The 1st (Polish) Armoured Division was ordered to free the inmates at Oberlangen. The camp was secured on April 12, Mr. BEAMENT's 37th birthday.
Back in England on September 27, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery opened the Khaki University of Canada in the United Kingdom, an army-operated school on the outskirts of northwest London preparing servicemen for their demobilization. Mr. BEAMENT served as university president.
The king and queen visited the school the following year on the day before the president's fifth wedding anniversary. The queen was presented a bouquet of tulips by the president's young son.
Mr. BEAMENT was appointed an officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1943. His other awards for wartime service included a Croix de Guerre (avec Palme) from France and a Military Cross from Czechoslovakia. Mr. BEAMENT had assisted the Czechoslovak Brigade in Britain, for which he was also made a member of the Order of the White Lion. He was also mentioned in dispatches.
Returning to Canada in 1946, he rejoined the family law firm with brother Warwick BEAMENT, who had also been a brigadier with the Canadian Army in Europe. The reception was not quite as welcoming as he had imagined, as his father asked for repayment of the $2,000 loan. Worse, Mr. BEAMENT faced a large tax bill.
The tax appeal board rejected his position that he should not be taxed as a Canadian resident even though he had been overseas for more than five years. The storage of civilian clothes with his father and the ownership of a bank account and safety-deposit box, coupled with his intention to return to Canada, where taken as prove of residence. He then lost an appeal to the Exchequer Court in 1951.
Finally, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1952 that "the appellant was physically absent from Canada" and should be taxed accordingly. BEAMENT v. the Minister of National Revenue benefited many returning veterans and the Income Tax Act was subsequently revised.
The family law firm became involved in one of the most sensational cases in the immediate postwar period, as Warwick BEAMENT acted as defence counsel in a spy trial following the defection of Soviet cipher clerk Igor GOUZENKO.
Two years after his brother's death in 1966, Ted BEAMENT moved his practice to Beament, Green, Dust until retiring at 86, by which time he had been made a life member of the Law Society of Upper Canada. He served from 1961 to 1966 as a commissioner for the National Capital Commission in Ottawa. His charitable work included high posts on behalf of the Red Cross, the local Young Men's-Young Women's Christian Association, and Ottawa's Community Chest. He was on the board of governors of Carleton University and was honorary governor of the Corps of Commissionaires.
Befitting his sterling war service, he served as honorary colonel of the 30th Field Artillery Regiment, as the amalgamated Bytown Gunners are now known.
Mr. BEAMENT was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in the waning days of 1986. The honour was conferred for his ardent support of charitable groups, most notably his 30 years of service on behalf of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, for which he was elected chancellor of the priory of Canada.
The successful campaign to reunite Mr. BEAMENT with his wife allowed him to be at her side as she breathed her last. Even in mourning, the retired brigadier remained a stickler for detail, ensuring the date of death was recorded as June 17, 2004, as his wife had passed 15 minutes before midnight. He had held her hand as she died.
Ted BEAMENT was born on April 12, 1908, in Ottawa. He died there on September 28. He was 97. He leaves a son, Justin BEAMENT, of Down Saint Mary, Devon, England; a daughter, Meriel BRADFORD, of Old Chelsea, Quebec; five grandchildren and four great-grand_sons. He was predeceased by his wife of 63 years, the former Brenda THOMS, who died last year. He was also predeceased by a sister, Ethel, and by brothers Warwick and Geoffrey.
