      CCOC member Richard Beeson stands with his Crosley CC sedan in a photo newly posted here.

      Richard Beeson was known for his enjoyment of politics and challenging the local city council on many issues. He ran for a position on the council four times.

      Beeson died at 81 from heart attack complications at his daughter's home in Lacey, Wash., on Sunday.

      He was independent but always right-leaning in his political views ... supportive of the ACLU, but an NRA member.

      In the community, he'd meet friends for coffee at the Moses Lake McDonald's.

      Up until his health problems began, he was safely driving and living in his home, his daughter explained. He went to live with her after his heart attack last month, and he had only arrived at his daughter's home and gotten settled when he died five days later.

      Beeson served in the U.S. Air Force from 1948 to 1972. His other hobbies included historical research, genealogy, cars, photography and information technology.

      He is survived by four children, nine grandchildren and his great-grandchildren.

      A service is planned for 1:15 p.m., March 25, at Tahoma National Cemetery, in Kent, Wash.

      We remember our own.
