Daniel James Bean, 64, passed away Tuesday, January 10, 2023 in Charlottesville.
Dan was born Sunday, May 11, 1958 in Concord, New Hampshire, a son of the late Raymond Willis and Florence (Whitehead) Bean.
In addition to his parents, Dan was preceded in death by his twin brother, Douglas J. Bean; brother Michael S. Bean; and his uncle, Richard Bean.
Dan graduated from Pembroke Academy High School in Pembroke, New Hampshire. In 1987, he met the love of his life, Debra, and they were married on April 15, 1989. Dan and Deb enjoyed 33 years of creating a loving family, making lifelong friends, going on adventures, and finding mutual interests. They took any chance they had to go fishing or go golfing together. Watching football was one of Dan’s favorite pastimes, and he was an avid fan of the Patriots.
He started his career in carpentry with his brothers, co-owning Bean Brothers Construction for a number of years. After moving to Scottsville, he worked for Lithic Construction for 18 wonderful years as a lead framer. Dan’s hard work over the years did not go unnoticed; an annual award given out at Lithic’s holiday party bears his name and is given to employees who have exceeded expectations.
In addition to his wife, Deb Bean, Dan is survived by his sons, Nicholas Bean and Steven Bean; siblings, Brenda Titus (Harry) of Plymouth MA, David Bean (Terry) of Webster NH, Donald Bean of Pittsfield NH; best friends, Tom and Sue OConnell and their children, TJ and Jocelyn; and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends that will miss him dearly.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Dan’s honor at a later time. Thacker Brothers Scottsville Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
