Russell Wayne Beak, age 90, of Wyoming, went to be with the angel’s on Wednesday, June 9, 2021. He was born on August 14, 1930, in Cascade to Walter and Alice (Stevens) Beak.

Russell was an avid bowler. He bowled a perfect game two times in his life – one of which was ABC sanctioned. He was featured in an article and received a one of a kind ruby ring to display his accomplishment. Not many can say they have bowled a perfect game in their lifetime, let alone twice. Russell was also a big Lion’s fan, supporting his favorite team by watching every game he could. He loved animals and always had many around the house. Russell also loved to golf, being outdoors and gardening. He was a veteran of the United States Navy.

He is survived by his wife, Judy, of 25 years; son Scott Beak; grandson Tristan Mahoney Beak; step-son, Jamie Olsen; step-daughter, Renee Kibbey; step-grandchildren, Brittany, Amber, Mia, Mason, Clare, Sam; step-great-grandchildren, Steven, Alex, Grayson; nieces, Deedee, Nancy, JoAnne, Karen, Sharon; nephew, Jim; and very good friend Dave Hernandez and wife Beth.

He was preceded in death by his parents and 8 of his siblings.

In honor of Russell’s memory, donations can be made to the Parkinson’s Foundation.

    Judy I’m so sorry for your loss. Wayne was a very special and important part of my life. He really taught me so much more than I ever realized. He was there. I have such great memories growing up. He could cook and awesome steak. Tiger was definitely his cat. So many more memories come to mind. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. He will be missed.🙏
