Ben Beal

Sept. 13, 1931 – Jan. 6, 2022

Ben Beal, 90, Noblesville, passed away on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022 at Harbour Manor Care Center in Noblesville.

He was born on Sept. 13, 1931 to George and Dove (Harrison) Beal in Noblesville, Ind.

Mr. Beal proudly served his country in the United States Air force, stationed in Japan during WWII. He was a 1949 graduate of Noblesville High School. He worked for Western Electric for over 30 years then worked in maintenance for Noblesville Schools.

Those that had the honorable pleasure to know “Benny Boo”, as nicknamed by his wife Judy and great-grandchildren, knew his fascination with the Indianapolis Colts Football team. He enjoyed traveling south in the winter months, was devoted to his relationship with the Lord and reading the Bible.

He will be missed by many, as he was hardly a stranger to those in his company. Many times, you could find him sparked by his humorous and ornery ways. In his later stages of life, he was thankful for the care, love, and sweet treats, like the Banana “Ben” Bread, that surrounded him.

Survivors include his wife of 15 years, Judy Carson-Beal; brother, Al (Nancy) Beal; sister, Marcella Snyder; children, Bruce Beal, Rick (Carolyn) Hicks, Carla (Mark) Burtron, Marcia Daniels and Pamela (Michael) Moon; grandchildren, Heather (Marcos) Gonzalez-Pacheco, Christopher (Kelli) Moon, Janette (Roberto) Vallecillo, Jaimie (Jeremy) Foreman and Lisa (Ryan) Rusher; 19 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his previous wife of 30 years, Linda A. Beal; and his sister, Betty Morris.

Visitation is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., with services at 1 p.m., on Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022 at Randall & Roberts Funeral Home, 1150 Logan Street, in Noblesville, with Pastor Don Janis officiating.  Burial with Military Rites will be at Crownland Cemetery in Noblesville.
