Born in Caribou, he was the son of the late George and Geraldine (Robinson) Beal. He was a graduate of both Caribou High School and the University of Maine Orono.

During retirement, he volunteered at the Hospice House and the Literacy Center as a math teacher.

He was past master of the Robboni Lodge of Masons and a Scottish Rite 32nd Degree Mason. One of his great pastimes was fishing with his brother and his friends, Fred West and Paul Vachon, during which they shared many exciting times.

His survivors include a daughter, Bonnie Deschaine and her husband, Paul, of Lewiston; his longtime companion, Elaine Chenard, of Turner; his grandson, Nathan Deschaine of Boston, Mass.; a brother, John Beal and his wife, Merleen, of Collinsville, Va.; three sisters, Patricia Lawson and her husband, Richard, of Sugarland, Texas, Barbara Mock of Sunnyside, N.Y., and Katherine Sunday and her husband, George, of Katy, Texas; and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by a son, John Beal; a brother-in-law, Paul Mock; and by a nephew, Paul Lawson.

The family wishes to thank the staffs in ICU and T1 at Central Maine Medical Center and Dr. Evan Ramser, for their loving care and kindness given during this difficult time.
