Theodore A. “Ted” Beal

October 18, 1949 ‒ August 30, 2015

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Theodore A. “Ted” Beal, 65, of Mansfield passed away Sunday morning, August 30, 2015 at home surrounded by his loving family following a valiant battle with cancer.

The son of Austin and Frances (Reed) Beal, Ted was born October 18, 1949 in Galion, and was graduated from Northmor High School.

For 14 years, Ted worked for Metzger Gleisinger Mechanical as an HVAC Technician.

Some have suggested that Ted’s yard could be compared to a botanical garden.  Detailed, Ted took pride in the beauty and tranquility of his landscape.  A well groomed lawn, cascading rock gardens, and colorful flowers, Ted’s property offered a peaceful retreat.

More importantly, Ted had a gentle, kind nature, and was loved by everyone that met him.  He was a member of Pleasant Grove Church of Christ.

Ted is survived by his wife Barbara (Volz) Beal of Mansfield; father Austin Beal of Lexington; brothers Sam (Carolyn) Beal of Mt. Gilead, Dave Beal of Lexington, John (Linda) Beal of Lexington; sister Beth Ann Beal of Lexington; nieces and nephews Heidi (Jack) Kegley and family of Mt. Gilead, Dan (Nicole) Beal of Mt. Gilead, Margo (Danny) Dixon of Statesville, North Carolina, Derick (Britni) Beal and family of Lexington, and Sadie Beal of Mansfield; stepdaughters Heather Frazier of Lexington and Tina (Shane) Byerly of Lexington; stepsons Brian Leech of Bellville and Tom Leech of Mansfield; step-grandchildren Cory, Cain, and Shelby Frazier, Demi, Alec, Jacob, and Logan Leech.

Ted was preceded in death by his mother Frances Beal and son-in-law Tony Frazier.

His family will receive friends Saturday, September 5, 2015 from 12 pm- 2 pm at Pleasant Grove Church of Christ,   7197 County Rd. 46, Mt. Gilead, OH 43338, where a memorial service celebrating the life of Theodore A. “Ted” Beal will be held at 2 pm.  Pastor Jack Kegley will officiate.

The Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home is honored to assist the Beal family with cremation services.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Pleasant Grove Church of Christ or Morrow County Hospice may be made through the funeral home.
