Royce was born out of love on Feb. 14, 1952, to Royal D. and Freda L. (Gearhart) Beigh in Warsaw.
On June 10, 1972, he married the love of his life, Carolyn (Harman) Beigh, who survives. Royce and Carolyn have two sons: Jeremy (Angie) and Justin (Sarah) Beigh.

Royce is also survived by his sister-in-law Charlotte (Harman) Siegfried, his nephew Paul Siegfried, and his niece Amanda Siegfried.
Royce worked at Dekko in both Claypool and North Webster. He also enjoyed woodworking and made handcrafted kitchenwares. He loved re-enacting and living history and traveled across the country to share his love and joy in educating others. He also had a great love for cars and even enjoyed racing in his younger days. Royce also took great joy in finding and collecting rare and old beer labels.
Royce will always be remembered as “Our Beloved Spoonman,” and our days will be dimmer without his smile and his love.
