Ayden Beeson


Ayden James Beeson, age 17, passed away on June 26, 2024. He was born on the 18th of August, 2006, in Centerville, Iowa. Ayden was a young light that shone brightly in the lives of those around him. Ayden was not just another face in the crowd. He was a compassionate soul, a dedicated individual, and a source of inspiration for many. His humility was his strength, never allowing his exceptional qualities to overshadow his innate kindness. He lived his life with an inspiring and infectious smile that illuminated even the darkest corners, a testament to his unwavering spirit and zest for life.

Ayden was a sports enthusiast, his love for football, tennis, and disc golf was evident in his dedication to each game. He was also a master of the Rubik’s cube, his quick fingers and sharp mind turning the scrambled cube into a pattern of colors in no time, but what truly set Ayden apart was his insane work ethic and determination. His grit and his ability to persevere were remarkable, attributes that were deeply admired and respected. Ayden was a firm believer in self-growth. He was generous with his time and efforts, always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Ayden’s love for life was contagious. His family and friends were his world, and he cherished every moment spent with them.

Ayden is survived by his loving parents, Alex and Tabitha Beeson, who remember him as a beacon of love and positivity, two sisters, Kennady and Hadley; paternal grandparents, Dennis and Alice Beeson; maternal grandparents, Craig and Benita McCoy; paternal great grandmother, Donna Beeson; maternal great grandmother, Delma Shaffer, many aunts, uncles, great aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by one aunt, Chantra McCoy.

His memory will continue to live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate to know him. His life was a testament to the fact that it’s not the years in life but the life in years that truly matters. We invite everyone who knew and loved Ayden to join us in a celebration of his life on Friday, July 5th, 2024, at 7:30 p.m. at Paul Johnson Field in Centerville. Memorials may be directed to the family.
