Clair Evan Beus, 77, passed away Saturday, July 19, 2014, at The Chaplaincy Hospice House in Kennewick. Clair was born Jan. 6, 1937, in Ogden, Utah, and grew up on a farm near Hooper, Utah, as the oldest of nine children of Evan and Alta Beus. He married Corynne Fry in 1955 and, together, they raised seven children. Clair and his family lived in Othello for many years where he farmed and also ran a restaurant, "Clair's Drive-In," with wife Corynne. Next to his family, farming was probably the love of Clair's life - he often said he was happiest out on his John Deere tractor. Unfortunately, when the farming economy crashed in 1979-80, Clair had to leave farming. He and Corynne continued in the restaurant business for many years in several communities, the last being "The Burger Place" in Washington City, Utah, where they retired in 2011. In January 2014, Clair and Corynne moved to Pasco to be closer to their family. Clair is remembered for his infectious smile, his sometimes mischievous sense of humor, his humility, and his love and goodwill to all people in his life. Although he seldom sang in public, Clair had a beautiful singing voice his wife Corynne says rivaled that of Nat King Cole. Clair is survived by his wife Corynne; their seven children Kevin Beus, Curtis Beus, Kelli Costanza, Kerry Beus, Kyle Beus, Ken Beus and Kimberly Clement; and his eight siblings Don Beus, Eva Lou Kent, Dale Beus, Susan Gentry, Kathy Harris, Glenn Beus, Clark Beus and Roger Beus. Clair and Corynne are also grandparents to 42 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren. Funeral services for Clair Evan Beus will be held at the Seventh Avenue LDS Church in Othello Saturday, July 26, beginning at 10 a.m., with graveside services to follow immediately at Bess Hampton Memorial Gardens in Othello.
