Vaughn Curtis Beasley

July 6, 1990 — May 22, 2024

Vaughn Curtis Beasley, 33, of Casper, Wyoming passed away on Wednesday May 22, 2024. Vaughn “rode the lightning,” same as he lived his life.

Vaughn was born in Gillette, Wyoming to Duane Beasley and Melissa Mallak on July 6, 1990, who later separated.

He started his schooling in Casper, Wyoming, where he went to Evansville Elementary and moved to Rapid City, where Duane married Lori Scott. Duane and Lori brought his little brother into the world from this union, Trevor Beasley.

After Duane separated Lori, Duane and Vaughn moved to Casper, where he went to Centennial Jr. High School then graduated from Kelly Walsh High School.

Throughout his life, he spent much time living with families and friends who took him in as their own, including the Christiensen’s, Dockweiler’s, Kihle’s, Boyles’, and many more.

Some may say Vaughn didn’t have much family growing up but, he had hundreds of brothers and sisters that he took care of and who took care of him. Later in life, after his father’s death, he reconnected with his mother, Melissa and older brother, Jesse, spending years catching up on lost time.

Vaughn was a hardworking man who never left out time for friends, family, and fun.

Vaughn worked as a scaffolder, plumber, and eventually fulfilled his dream of being a “Roughneck, baby.

Bon fires, dirt biking, snowboarding, long boarding, hiking, and camping (especially in La Bonte Canyon), among many more outdoor activities were his passion. Vaughn loved bigger than his heart and longer than his life to all he met and surrounded himself with. His friends-pool was overfilling from the time he was young. His laugh is unforgettable along with his perfectly quick wit to joke or lay out a sweet burn when prompted (always with love intended). Many of those who he gave a sweet burn to upon acquaintance, became his very closest friends. He never did anything less than to the fullest; “send it,” along with many more, were his life mottos. A split-second adventure was always a few steps away in the random unplanned life in which he lived.

Vaughn was preceded in death by uncle, Vaughn Curtis Beasley, whom he was named after; his father, Duane; grandmother, Lois Morgan, aunt Tana; grandfather, Roger Mallak; brother, Trey; and many other uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents, friends, brothers, and sisters.

Vaughn is survived by his brother, Trevor, his wife Danielle, their daughter, Gracie; stepmother, Lori; brother, Marcus; mother, Melissa; brother, Jesse; sister, Toni, her husband, Grant, their daughter, Maggie and son, Kane; many nieces; nephews; aunts; uncles; cousins; family; and YOU, reading this.

A celebration of life will be held at the Elks Lodge #1353, 108 E 7th St, in Casper, Wyoming on Friday, May 31, 2024 at 2:00 p.m. His friends and huge family would be honored to have you come to celebrate and tell stories to remember his life and the love that he spread so contagiously.
