We regretfully announce that Beau Shane Willoughby, 55, of Pipe Creek, Texas, passed away on Thursday, June 29, 2023, from natural causes.
Beau was born on September 3, 1967 in Pleasanton, Texas.

Beau attended schools primarily in Poteet and Bandera where he ran track, and graduated from BHS in 1986. He served in the United States Navy after high school. He was an avid Longhorns fan, loved spending time at the beach & listening to good music, and was an amazing carpenter & cook. He was sweet, funny, and lived his life to the fullest. He loved his kids and his family, and he was a really cool friend.
He had just recently moved back home to the Hill Country, near his parents and sister, and was enjoying fixing up his new place and rekindling his relationship with his High School sweetheart Cheryl. It brings us all great peace to know that he was so happy this last year of his short life.
Rest in peace, dude. No more pain…..
