Ed Ace Beam, Sr., 77, of Gastonia passed away July 20, 2023 at his residence.

He is survived by his sons, EJ Beam, and Ritch Beam and his wife, Stephanie; their mother, Libby Cook; his brother, Tony Beam and wife, Ellen; and his grandchildren, Dylan Beam and Grace Beam. 


A private interment will be held at Salisbury National Cemetery at a later date.
