Foundation Trustee David Beaham dies

Trustees and Friends of the CGSC Foundation and U.S. Army Command and General Staff College:

I have just been informed this afternoon of the passing of David Beaham, President of Faultless Starch Bon Ami, Kansas City, an original founding trustee of the CGSC Foundation and a great friend of CGSC. David passed this morning from a heart attack.DavidBeaham-w

David was a founding trustee who pledged his support at the very beginning of the creation of the Foundation in 2006. He believed passionately about CGSC and the role it plays in the development of our military leaders. He was a great supporter of the International Military Student Division of the College and a fierce advocate of the importance of CGSC. David was also a major supporter of the Business Executives of National Security (BENS) nationally and in Kansas City.

We shall miss David, his infectious smile, good nature and enduring devotion to the military. Our heart goes out to his wife and children.

We shall post details of the memorial on the CGSC Foundation website when they become available.– Update– Memorial Services for David are being conducted Friday, Oct. 14, at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 6401 Wornall Terrace, Kansas City, Mo.  David’s obituary is available here.

Very Respectfully,


Robert R. Ulin
Colonel, US Army Retired
CEO, CGSC Foundation, Inc.

  1. We are so shocked and saddened about David’s sudden passing. Kansas City with never be the same without him. Our prayers go out to his family.

  2. David and I were friends since pre school. We both are “lifers” from Pembroke Country Day School (now Pembroke Hill), class of 1982. During my 20 year active duty career with the Navy flying EA-6B Prowlers, David was always incredibly supportive and always took an interest in my career, the Navy in general as well as National Security Issues. I count myself fortunate to call David a friend of 44 years standing, and my family is praying for David’s family. I am saddened and shocked. I will miss him and he won’t be forgotten by his friends and family. Sincerely, Torsten Garber LCDR, USN (Retired)

  3. I met Dave only recently at a BENS sponsored dinner in DC. He made an immediate impression on me through his genuine concern for the military and his desire to help soldiers. My family’s most sincere condolences to his family.

  4. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Family. We lost our brother David Eguene Beaham July 2011 to cancer and our father Harold Eugene Beaham October 1994 to cancer. Our father always said we were related. If you would like to get in touch feel free to do so. Again our thoughts and prayers to Davids family
