Richard Talmage Beeler served as law director 1990 to 2000. After his service with the county, Beeler was a partner of the law firm Robertson, Overbey, Wilson & Beeler. He later left the firm, but still practiced law.
Not only did Beeler love the law, he also was a huge parachute enthusiast, skydiving solo hundreds of times. I liked him. He was a good guy.
