Paul Vernon Beane, 92 of Kure Beach, NC passed away on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.
Paul grew up on a farm in East Bend, NC and was preceded in death by his parents Turner and Etta Bean. He was an accomplished baseball and basketball player in his youth. He was a US Army veteran and served in the Pacific in World War II and was later stationed in Korea. Following his service, Paul enjoyed a long career at RJR Archer in Winston-Salem. After retirement, he and Mary cared for his mother until her death and then moved to Kure Beach, fulfilling a lifelong dream of theirs. Paul was a kind man who loved watching sports and giving advice to his boys, who probably should have followed more of it. Paul will be missed by many.
He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Mary Blanche Huff and four children Tim (Anne), Chuck (Cynthia), Phil (Susan), and Daniel (Mamie) along with seven grandchildren and two step granddaughters.
Private funeral services will be held.
