June 15, 1952 – July 8, 2023
Charles Delbert McBeth, 71, died July 8, 2023, at the Collins State Veterans Home in Collins. He was born on June 15, 1952, in Bogalusa, son of J.W. McBeth, who preceded him in death, and Mary McBeth.
McBeth served in the Army National Guard and for the last 13 years was contracted at Camp Shelby through the Department of Defense Contractor as a training equipment armorer that takes a special skill. It was especially valuable when our local national guard was called in to service, and was remarked upon by his superiors by how gifted he was at it.
Survivors are his wife Donna Bowman McBeth of 43 years, three sons, John (Angel), Josh, and Jeb (Emily), and three grandchildren Kyler, Andrew and Sutton, who is on the way.
McBeth was a graduate of Tylertown High School, Class of 1970. He was a great sports enthusiast and athlete. He enjoyed playing with the travel softball team Alive and Kicking that stayed together for about 30 years and won a number of championships. His team nickname was Snoopy and was an outstanding outfielder. At home, he loved watching westerns, football, baseball, and enjoyed being a jokester with friends and family.
