Charles Wilford “Willie” Beach, Sr., 88, passed away on Sunday, March 15, 2020, at the Currituck House in Moyock, NC. A native of Fairfax, VA, he was born August 4, 1931, to the late Robert Ashton and Dollie Croson Beach.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Madeline; six brothers, Claude, Tee, Bobby, Fred, John, and Donnie; and his son, Charles Wilford Beach, Jr.

Willie was a longtime car salesman and the used car manager at Herby’s Ford in Alexandria, VA and Woodbridge Jeep Eagle in Woodbridge, VA. He was an avid Washington Redskins fan attending multiple super bowls and hall of fame events. He was an avid golfer with a PGA certified 2 under par handicap. He loved spending time with his family, attending all the sporting events of his boys and then continued with his grandchildren sports and activities from New York to North Carolina.

He was a loving husband, dad, grandpa and friend to all he met. We will all miss his smile and gentle soul.
