Daniel Rindell Beaman

 

Daniel Rindell Beaman

 

Devoted husband, son, brother and uncle.

 

Daniel (Danny) Beaman, 55 years old, passed away on May 17th, 2020. Danny was born and raised in Madison, NJ by his loving parents Allen & Mary Beaman. He was the youngest of five siblings. After graduating from Madison High School, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Communication from Boston University. Upon graduation, Danny began a long and successful career in the film & television industry working primarily as a dolly grip and on lighting crews of various production companies in the NY/NJ area. Danny enjoyed his work even though it involved long hours and physical labor in sometimes difficult conditions. Working on film crews was a passion of his and although he had his name in many film and TV credits, he did not do it for the recognition or chance to be near celebrities. In fact, he was reluctant to talk about the star actors/actresses he worked with over the years. Danny lived in NYC for several years post college before settling permanently in Ocean Grove, NJ where he bought an old Victorian cottage two blocks from the beach. He enjoyed spending his free time fixing the place up and renting out the downstairs to various tenants. It was at this time, in 2003, Danny met the love of his life, Dr Kim McFadden. Danny & Kim made sure to enjoy life to the fullest during their free time. They loved going out to eat and being with their friends in and around Ocean Grove. One of Danny’s biggest pleasures came from organizing vacations for the two of them. Their favorite vacation spot was Key West, Florida where they went almost every year. However, their greatest vacation was in 2019 when Danny & Kim did a two-week safari in Africa. It was a vacation of a lifetime that took two years to plan and involved thousands of pictures being taken. Danny is predeceased by his father Allen and his older brother Robert. He is survived by his loving wife Dr Kim McFadden, his mother Mary, sisters Mary Ellen & Helen, brother William (wife Noreen), brothers in law Thomas McFadden (wife Katherine) & Christopher McFadden (wife Kimberly) and sister in law KarenMcFadden. Danny was the uncle to Elizabeth, Emily & Jack Beaman as well as Roark, Jacob & Joseph McFadden. He is also survived by his Uncle Pat Luciano (wife Eileen) and his aunt Anne Luciano. Danny will be missed by all his loving cousins and friends. He was taken from us way too soon and will be missed dearly by all those he touched during his life. He was free spirit who loved and lived life to the fullest. A memorial service honoring Danny will be held at a later date when family and friends can safely gather together.
