– May 19, 2013

Robert Bernard Beall, born in Mannington, W.Va,, to Gore H. and Louise (Carter) Beall, died at home on Sunday, May 19, 2013. Bob is a graduate of Triadelphia High School in Wheeling, W.Va., where he played basketball and football and ran track; he played basketball while in the military (Army), and attended Washington and Jefferson College and WVU. He was wed to Patricia Lou Knight on June 18, 1955, and was married for 47 years. He had a long career in sales and management; he started in sales in New York City in 1958, managed WTWO-TV station in Terre Haute, for most of his career, then managed TV stations in Savannah, Ga., and Wilmington, N.C., before retiring to Bloomington to be near his young grandsons.  

He is preceded in death by his wife, Patti; his father and mother; his brother-in-law, James Knight; and his mother-in-law, Effie Ferne (Bonar) Knight Folmar.
