Christian Beug

June 22, 1956-May 7, 2012

On Monday, May 7, 2012 Christian John Beug of Minden, Nev., passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Christian was born to Herb and Ramona Beug in Luverne, Minn. The family moved to Detroit Lakes in 1969 where Chris completed his high school education in 1974.

He married Wanda Clements in 1977 and they had a daughter, Trisha. They relocated to Reno soon after where Chris managed Country Kitchen. In 1986, he moved to South Lake Tahoe and started work with Farmer Bros. Coffee, continuing until he retired in 2010.

Because of his friendly and outgoing nature, he formed many close ties with his customers throughout the Lake Tahoe and Carson area. His work ethic and dedication to get the job done right was inspiring. Chris would greet you with a warm hug instead of a handshake.

He married Linda Stedman in September of 1997 and two families were happily joined as one.

He loved fishing and camping and would rarely spend a weekend at home during the summer months. A favorite pastime was passing down family history to his grandchildren and sharing funny stories of his younger years, which were many.

Surviving Chris are his mother, Ramona Beug; his wife, Linda; daughter, Trisha (Andy) Carter of Reno, Nev.; stepsons, Ché (Jenny) Stedman of Madison, Wis., and Jesse (Dawn) Tubb of Savage, Md.; brothers, David (Mary), Bruce (Corinne), Mark (Barb), and Greg (Jacinda); sister, Carol (Gary) Padrta; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

His six grandchildren, Tayler, Branden, Parker, Elsa, Jayden and Evan will surely miss their Papa.

Preceding Chris in death were his father, Herb, and sister, Pamela.

Join us for a Celebration of Life at LifePoint Church, 1095 Stephanie Way, Minden, Nev., at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 19. You are welcome to share a special story at the service.

Arrangements were entrusted to Walton's Funerals and Cremations, Gardnerville, NV, 775-783-9312.

His home was the great outdoors.

His church a mountain lake.

A rule that he lived by,

Was to give more than you take.
