Greenville, Sc

Marion Worth Beacham, Jr, “Buster”, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on April 1, 2024. Born in Columbia, SC, on April 9, 1944, he was the son of the late Elizabeth Wertz Beacham and Marion Worth Beacham, Sr. He was a graduate of Wofford College where he was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. He earned his juris doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law. He was also a graduate of the Cannon Trust School and the National Graduate Trust School at Northwestern University. He worked in the field of trust for over 50 years. He was Senior Vice-President and Trust Officer at TNB Financial Services where he had many dear friends. Although approaching his 80th birthday, he loved his work and never seriously considered retirement.

A longtime member of Fourth Presbyterian Church, Buster served as a member of the Diaconate and the Session. He was a graduate of Leadership Greenville and was a past Board Chairman of Senior Action and a past president of the Estate Planning Council.

An avid sports fan, he loved the Gamecocks and the Atlanta Braves, and he enjoyed attending The Masters for many years. When his children began playing soccer, he discovered a love for coaching. He was an assistant coach for both the girls’ and boys’ soccer teams at Greenville High School and loved getting to know all the young people he had the privilege of coaching. For many years, he also loved being a part of the “chain gang” on the sidelines of Red Raider football games. He was a longtime church basketball coach.

The annual beach week with three generations of his family was a favorite tradition and many special weekends with his siblings. He loved a fun party and would dance the night away. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Penny, and his children and their spouses, Marion Worth Beacham III and his wife Laura, Elizabeth Beacham Lowery and her husband Lewis, and John Wells Beacham and his wife Meagan. He is also survived by seven grandchildren, Anne Wells, Eliza and Emily Lowery, Worth IV, Legare, and Milly Beacham, and Wells Beacham Jr. He is survived by his siblings, Bryan Wertz Beacham and his wife Joy, Ann Beacham Martin, and David Miller Beacham and his wife Cyndi, sister-in-law Margaret Thaxton, many nieces and nephews, and a dear family friend Margaret Watson. He was predeceased by his brothers-in-law Alex Martin and Dick Thaxton.
