He was selected treasurer of the Vermont Soldiers' Home in 1914 and held that office until he came here in 1923. He was a charter member of the local Vermont Tourist Society.

His only survivors are his daughter, Mrs. C. R. Hutchinson, her husband and two granddaughters. Mr. Beach was commander of the local G.A.R. Post for eight years. He held several national offices in the organization and was a former commander of Vermont and Florida departments.
