Jim Beardo

On Sunday, July 23, 2017 Jim Beardo, 68, joined his son, Jason Beardo returning home to our Heavenly Father.

Jim was born in Los Angeles, Calif., on Feb. 13, 1949, where he grew up becoming an avid hunter and outdoorsman. Later, he moved to Oregon where his children were born. Jim returned to Los Angeles where he worked for Union 831 for over 20 years.

After retiring in 2005, Jim and his wife, Mary Beardo, moved to Lewistown to enjoy the open roads he loved to ride, as well as the fabulous hunting and fishing of Central Montana.

Jim never met a stranger. He had an infectious personality and a generous spirit. You would always see him with a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family.

Jim is survived by his wife, Mary Beardo; daughter, Candyce (James) Shirey; four grandchildren, Tristen Beardo, Trinity Beardo, Archer Shirey and Aiden Shirey; and his sister, Sheila Beardo.

A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, Aug. 5, 2 p.m. at the Creel Funeral Home Chapel.  Following the service, a celebration of Jim’s life will continue at Shirey’s Pub in Hilger, Mont. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Jim Beardo’s family, c/o Creel Funeral Home, to help with funeral expenses.  

Arrangements are under the care of Creel Funeral Home. Jim’s family and friends can share memories and condolences at www.creelfuneralhome.com.
