He was an Air Force brat living in various places until the family settled in Plano, Texas. He died of Covid 19 complications on January 4, 2021 at Wilson N. Jones Medical Center in Sherman, Texas.
After graduating from high school in Plano, he attended Bible Baptist College in Springfield, Missouri and there he met Jannia Wilson and they were married in Springfield between semesters on December 27, 1973. They loved and laughed together for more than 45 years until her death on August 10, 2019. They were blessed with a son, Cheynne.
Pepe was an ardent follower of Christ whose obvious love of Jesus and His church could easily be seen in his sweet, and humble demeanor. He lived a life of joy and his infectious laughter often spilled over in his encounters with people. He and his family were actively involved in the “puppet ministry” in Grayson Bible Baptist Church, Sherman writing scripts, building the stage in order to share the gospel in an age-appropriate manner with children and adults.
He was in incredibly hard worker throughout his life with multiple jobs starting with throwing the city newspaper for all of Plano! Through the years Pepe was a short order cook, tax preparer and often worked two jobs to support his family; but his primary career was as a truck driver working for over 30 years until his death. He drove for various companies and logged hundreds of thousands of miles transporting numerous products and loads.
Pepe is survived by his son, Cheynne of Sherman, sisters Jaren BeAbout and Krystl Philyaw and husband, Scott all of Van Alstyne, Texas, brother, Tye BeAbout of Richardson, Texas. He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Helen Wilson of Marshfield, Missouri along with extended family and many friends and brothers and sister in Christ. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Jannia; a daughter, Angel Dawn BeAbout, and his parents, Edgar and Luisa BeAbout.
