Robert Allen Beaver

Robert Allen Beaver born February 2, 1941 passed away peacefully in his sleep March 28, 2021.  Bob was the eldest son of Herbert Cecil and Arlys Jean (Cummins) Beaver.  He grew up in Knoxville, IA and attended school until mid-elementary school.  The family then moved to Janesville, IA where he graduated from high school.

Bob attended Simpson College in Indianola, IA where he played football, basketball and baseball.  It was at Simpson that Bob met the love of his life Margo Ann Keil. Bob and Margo were married in May of 1962.  Bob joined the Air Force and was deployed overseas to Turkey, where he and Margo lived for several years.  While in the Air Force Bob was in radio communications but specialized in morse code.  Bob was on the base Football team and competed in Judo.

Professionally Bob was very involved with education.   1967-68 graduate assistant at Illinois State University, 1968-73 Department Chair at Glenbard East HS, 1973 Assistant Principal at Platteville HS, 1974-76 High School Principal at Platteville, 1976-85 District Administrator at the School district of Black Hawk, South Wayne WI, 1985-2000 District Administrator at Adams Friendship School District, 2004-2009 District Administrator at Princeton School District, and 2009 to Present, Founder and consultant for Wisconsin Rural School Alliance.

His civic organizations included Grand Marsh State Bank Board of Directors, Moundview Memorial Healthcare Foundation Board, Founding member of the Wisconsin Rural Schools Alliance, Adams County Chamber of Commerce, Lions International, Optimists International, American Legion, Viet Nam Era Veterans, FFA Alumni, Masonic Lodge, Ducks Unlimited, National Turkey Federation, Boy Scouts of America, Lay Leader United Methodist Church, Simpson College Alumni Council.

Bob’s honors included Wisconsin FFA Honorary State Degree, Honorary Member of the National Honor Society, Outstanding Young Men of America, Chamber of Commerce-Outstanding Citizen, 1996 Administrator of the Year, Chamber of Commerce – Parr Excellence Award, Board Member of the Year WI Technical College Boards Association(twice).   He has also been a board member at Southwest Vocational Technical Institute, Wisconsin HS Forensics, Mid-State Technical College, Wisconsin Technical College, State Legislative Committee WTCS, and South-Central Instructional Network Group.

Bob was a devoted and caring family man.  He loved being outdoors, fishing, hunting, riding on Castle Rock Lake in his pontoon boat.  An avid sports fan he loved to watch sports being played especially when he could watch his grandchildren play.   Bob coached football, basketball, baseball and track early in his career.

Next to sports Bob’s greatest passion was asking the question, “What can I do that is good for children?” and then giving back to causes that he believed in.  His many years of membership in Optimist Club of Monroe and Adams Friendship Lions were a testament to that.  There were many years that he worked long shifts at the cheese curd stand for the Monroe Optimist Club and many more that he dedicated to the A-F Lions at the Adams County Fair stand.  Bob served in volunteer roles with the Wisconsin Technical College system as a board member for individual colleges and on the state technical College board.  His most recent passions were the A-F Education Foundation and the Moundview Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation.  His efforts in the name of those organizations resulted in building of the Fine Arts Center in 2015 and in the growth of the hospital foundation from 1993 to its present stature. Which includes renovating existing facilities and purchasing equipment that otherwise would not be possible.  He was also instrumental in the building of the new Adams- Friendship High School.

Bob is survived by his wife of 58 years Margo and two sons Kris (Shelly) Beaver of Columbus, WI and Kevin (Amy) Beaver of Adams.  Grandchildren Zach (Samantha) Beaver of Sun Prairie and Kelsey Beaver and Jacob Caltagerone of Janesville. Anna, Karley, Rylan and Lindey Beaver of Adams. Great Grandson Simon Beaver. Bob is preceded in death by his Father Herbert Cecil Beaver, mother Arlys Jean Beaver, brother Richard Beaver and sister Jean Beaver.

Memorial services will be 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at the Adams Friendship Fine Arts Center in Adams, Wisconsin.   Pastor Anita Genrich will officiate.  Visitation will be Saturday at Adams Friendship Fine Arts Center from 10:30 a.m. until the time of service.

    Sorry for your loss

  2. Cathy Rathermel says:

    Margo and family, we are so saddened to hear of your loss. Bob was a great community leader in all aspects, especially education. The community has lost one of the great pillars. God Bless you and your family and remember all the wonderful attributes he shared with many people. Blessings

  3. Jeanne Hoks says:

    Dear Margo and family,

    I was saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. I had the honor of working with Bob while I was at Mid-State Technical College. He was always the calm in the storm, kept students first and foremost, and he was a loyal supporter of the technical college system. He will truly be missed.

  4. Chuck and Anita Carter says:

    Margo and family: I was talking to my husband recently about the “pillars in the Adams community” and how so many of them are no longer with us, and I wondered about the fate of our town without these relentless donors of time, energy, personality and respect. Bob was one of those pillars. I am so sorry to see him gone from our community, but I am glad that some of his offspring are already filling in as younger pillars of our community. With that said, his loss is immeasurable and we are even more deeply saddened that he is gone from his family’s lives and send hugs and prayers your way as you find your way after his departure. You, above all, will feel the loss and will try to fill the huge gap he has left behind. Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers and that we will keep you there for a long time.

  5. Bob and Janis Cada says:

    We are so sorry for your loss. Bob was a great leader in the community and will be missed by everyone who knew him. May God comfort you in your time of sorrow.

  6. Sue Polivka says:

    Dear Kevin and family. My heart goes out to you all over the unexpected loss of your dad. I knew him through the friendship and admiration that my sister and brother in law had for your dad.
    He sounded like a truly selfless man whose goal in life was the betterment of all he touched through his good works and the love he had for his family.
    May the love of family and friends and the many memories of your dad sustain you during this time of great loss.
    With profound sympathy,
    Sue Polivka

  7. John and Juanita Hefty says:

    Margo and family. We are so saddened to hear of Beaver passing. We have great memories of times spent together in Platteville and then visiting you in South Wayne, and when you came to Colorado!! Our first stop after driving all night from Colorado was to have breakfast in South Wayne! We always had so much to talk about! Beaver and John were so much alike in so many ways and that made their friendship so special. He had a wonderful personality and cared so deeply for everything he did. Hugs and prayers to all.

  8. Nancy and Scott Sorensen says:

    We are so sorry for your loss. Bob was a great man! He worked hard for the kids of this community and he made our community a better place to live for all of us. He always kept going just like the energizer bunny. A true angel to watch over all of us. He will be missed!

  9. Ervin Ziegler says:

    I am very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Bob at Black Hawk where I saw his passion to see students succeed. He was gifted with the ability to instill this passion in the staff and school board and be a friend at the same time. He will be missed.
    Erv Ziegler

  10. Phil Baranowski says:

    My deepest sympathy, thoughts, and prayers to the family of Bob. I first met Bob in the 1970’s when we were neophyte District Administrators attending the orientation meetings of DPI & WASDA. We discovered that we shared similar goals & aspirations which we followed through our K-12 years. I especially cherish the memories of our many years serving as Technical College Trustees and working with the WI Technical College Boards Association. The many honors & awards bestowed upon him were indicative of his passionate advocacy of the Technical College System continuous to the time of his passing. May his rewards be eternal.

  11. Carla Byrnes says:

    Margo, Kevin, Chris, Amy, Shelly, Anna, and family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss is such an inadequate expression given the greatness of Bob. As Shakespeare said—Your sorrow should not be measured by his worth, for then it hath no end.
    Bob was the best of bosses, best of friends, best of men. The people of AF are so much the better because Bob and Margo chose to live there and invest their time and energy in making AF the best it could be. That was in his spare time. His day job was improving the lives of every single child in AFAS. Whatever it took, Bob would find a way. There aren’t many men of his caliber in the world today and I was fortunate to call him my friend.

  12. Matthew & Anna Fournelle says:

    Our condolences to the Beaver family.

  13. Paul Rodock says:

    Prayers to Margo, Kris and Kevin. Condolences from Steve Rodock as well. Bob was a my father’s (Steve) coffee drinking buddy years ago. He had a positive impact on many, many lives and will be missed.

  14. Pat & Beccy Pare says:

    Margo & Family, please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss. Bob was a wonderful man who molded a legacy of selfless giving, and compassion for others that anyone would certainly be proud to aspire to. RIP Beaver

  15. Dick Angwin says:

    Beaver, I always knew you had my back, if I needed you. We worked together at the Hub Clothiers and learned Jewish engineering 101 : check, check and double check. We celebrated New Years Eve dinner at the Mill and learned it is important to have family and friends with great contacts. We taught the boys water sports at the Travelodge pool (not sure Margo & Shirley would call it water sports). Joked with you at this past Christmas about your suspenders, but since you were six months older than me, told you whatever. Knowing your not there is hard for me to accept at this time.
    I will be there for Margo if she needs anything for she will miss you so much.
    Buy Shirley(Pudge) a drink and save me a spot.
    Dick

  16. Kris Blakeley says:

  30. Gerald W. Meier says:

    Margo, Kris and Kevin,
    Bob was an exceptional man and a wonderful district administrator.
    One did not work FOR Beaver; You worked WITH him
    He was, by far, the best administrator I ever worked under.
    His care and concern for young people showed every day of every school year.
    He will always live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew him and were fortunate enough to call him a friend.

  31. Gary and Dixie Ruble says:

    So very sorry Margo and family. We will miss seeing Bob this summer. Our prayers for you.

  34. Leanne Hart Menninga says:

    My condolences to Margo and the rest of the Beaver family. Bob and I both started in the Platteville School District: he as assistant principal and I as the high school librarian. I think it was a good move for both of us as he went on to other schools and advanced in those positions. I lost track of him over the years but knew he retired from the Adams-Friendship district while I stayed in Platteville. I remember him as a kind, thoughtful administrator and person. I wish you all peace at this difficult time.
    Leanne Hart Menninga and Al Menninga

  37. Pat and Maureen Hauswald says:

    Margo, Kris, Kevin and family. Our sincere sympathy on the loss of Bob. He was a husband, father, grandfather to all of you, and a legend to the community. He was definitely someone who couldn’t help but lead…a rare individual who saw what needed to be done and did something about it without an expectation of laurels. Bob—the very definition of servant leader…with a quiet, but quick wit and a great smile. Thank you for sharing him with us.

  38. Dick and Marj Colby says:

    Our condolences to the Beaver Family and the entire Adams-Friendship community. Bob will be remembered for all his contributions to the community and for his commitment to his family. He will be sorely missed by all he touched.

    We knew Bob primarily through his wife, Margo, daughter-in-law, Amy, son Kevin and grandkids, Anna, Karley, Rylan, and Lindey. His legacy will continue with such outstanding people he has left behind. Our condolences go out to Margo, Kevin and the families.

  40. Brian Oehler says:

    Dear Margo, Kevin & Family,
    Please accept our heartfelt condolences for your loss.
    We initially met Bob when he was appointed to the Mid-State Technical College Board. At the time, we were pleased to hear from our colleagues at Southwest Tech we were inheriting a veteran Board Member. Little did we know he was going to be better than described.
    Bob wasn’t one to back away from difficult challenges, instead he faced them directly with honesty and integrity. His direct demeanor, coupled with his unassuming personality and special humor, presented a rare high quality man. It was an honor to know him, he was truly a special man.
    I know how he loved and valued his family, So thank you Margo for sharing him with us all!
    Although we temporarily lost a treasured friend, We can feel comfort in knowing his many sacrifices and contributions will benefit others for generations to come.
    Brian @ Mary Jane Oehler

  41. Pastor Anita Genrich says:

    Bob is the kind of man, one never forgets. He encouraged and walked along side others to be their best. I knew him as we worked together in the 1980s on Adams County Community Concerns impacting youth. Then our paths crossed again these last 5 years, at the Mauston UMC. Bob lived his faith and encouraged others to do so too! James 2:14 would be the question Bob would model for others in his life path. James 2:18 reflects his heart and life-lived motto. I am grateful that the LORD wove our paths together again. Margo and family, you have my sincere sympathies and those of the Mauston United Methodist Church members.

  42. Barbara Bartelt says:

    Margo I my thoughts are with you Mr beaver I loved him he was one of the best he will be sorely missed

  43. Karen Rees Kerber says:

    My thoughts and prayers to you Margo and your entire family. What a tribute to Beaver with all the condolences I have read on line so far.

  44. Claire Duchateau says:

    Such sad news for your family and the entire community. Beaver was such an asset to AF schools and truly made a difference in the lives of the students and staff under his care. Margo you and your family are in my prayers. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  50. Joan Wade & Luther Olsen says:

    We are saddened to learn about Bob’s passing. He was truly an inspirational leader, especially in education. His energy never stopped when he was focused on making the world a better place for all children. I was fortunate to have worked with him when he was the Superintendent in Adams-Friendship, and I was at CESA 5. Bob was wise in many ways with high integrity. We need more leaders like Bob Beaver. He always took the time to talk to me whenever we would see each other at the fair, school board convention, or wherever we happen to see each other. He will be missed by many, but none more than his family.

    God Bless,

  51. Terry Reynolds says:

    Margo and family, I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. Bob was an outstanding educator, school leader, and Board member. Through the years I really enjoyed our conversations, he certainly was a great mentor for me as a young Superintendent, and then again as a new Mid-State Technical College Board member. I became a better educator and person because of my fortunate opportunity to get to know Bob and be able to call him my friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all.
    Terry and Kathy Reynolds

  52. Trea Kimball says:

    Margo & Family,
    I am saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. What a legacy he leaves for your family, the Adams-Friendship community, the Wisconsin Technical College System, Mid-State Technical College, the Moundview Hospital and countless other organizations. His passion and drive will be missed by so many, but his spirit has been cultivated in all of you. Peace and good memories to your whole family.

  53. Paul Gabriel says:

    Bob was a mentor and hero to me. I never would have understood the importance of technical colleges had he not been elected president of the statewide boards association the week I started working there in 1997. He was generously there for me ever since. Of course, he was always there for countless thousands of students at every level and for so many worthy causes. Still, when I think about Bob now, what stands above all else is family. Whatever our work together – calm or crisis, hopeful or scary times – he always checked on me, my wife, kids and grandkids. He adored his Margo and boys and their families and never lost track of them and what they meant to him when we spoke. He pretty much always found a way to credit Margo or other family or friends when he was complimented. I’m a better person because of Bob Beaver. Many are. Thank you good and kind friend and thank you Margo and family for sharing him with us.

  54. Donny Orick says:

    Margo,Kevin & family; please accept our deepest condolences. He will surely be missed.
    Donny Orick & Joanne Sumpter

  55. Martin Hillert says:

    Our community mourns this loss. Bob was a brother and friend to so many. His leadership and influence were experienced by the school districts and communities where he and Margo lived. We in the Adams-Friendship area were most blessed because the Beaver family made this their home for much of their careers. When my family was considering where to live and have our daughter attend school, Bob was the one who convinced us that the A-F district and community would be the best place for us. We all will miss him. Love and peace to Margo and family.

  56. Kay Banie says:

    Dear Margo –

    The entire Wisconsin Technical College System sends its deepest condolences to you and your family. Bob leaves a legacy of engaged leadership and an absolute dedication to the power of education to transform lives that has, and will continue to benefit thousands of Wisconsinites for generations.

    Bob was a calm presence during turbulent times, quick with a good laugh and, if necessary, a forceful champion for students. He was a passionate advocate for educational equity, whose efforts kept the needs and concerns of Wisconsin’s rural communities front and center in state and federal education policy discussions.

    Bob was also an incredible mentor for countless educators and leaders. I met Beaver shortly after joining the WTCS, and got my first tutorial about the System’s history, operations and secrets to success. In the decades since, Beaver remained a trusted advisor and a friend. I will continue to rely on the the memory of his guidance, humor and grace in the years ahead.

    Margo, Kevin and Chris ~ I’m so sorry ! What a great man with a gentle soul. So selfless always there for his community and others . I have been truly blessed to have known him ! Beav will forever be in my heart ! He taught me so many things in life most important was a quote he shared with me once that I never forgot “it’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice”

  89. Sally Winchester says:

    RIP BEAV!!! So Sorry for your loss Margo and family!! I am so happy I got to know Bob and spend so much time with him helping us at 4 Seasons Mini Mart and helping him at the different benefits he was involved in. He was one of the Nicest men I have ever met and such a big help with anything and everything he ever got involved in. Bob was also so caring about the people around him giving advice and could tell some pretty funny jokes. I will always cherish the time I got to spend with him, Pontoon rides across the lake for lunch, the Christmas party, and all the advice he gave me. Hugs to you Margo!!!
