      _____________________

      Roy was from the large Beechey family who had their own dairy in which he worked.
      In 1949 they moved to Elmira and purchased their own dairy. Five years later they moved from Elmira to Tillsonburg to buy Scotts Dairy in 1954 [name changed to Tillsonburg Dairies.] The dairy was sold and the family with partners, started Till-Cable T.V. The Pee-Wee story, which was originally part of the Dairy was kept. It was like a variety store and had a small grill. Kay was active in both business, when necessary, but also took care of the home front while Roy ran the business and became very involved with the Ontario Minor Hockey Association.
