Edward Raymond Beale, age 47, of Midlothian, Virginia, entered into eternal life on July 20th, 2017 after a courageous battle with a rare cancer. He was born in Jacksonville, FL on February 6, 1970 and lived in numerous states along the East Coast.

He married his devoted wife, Lisa Beale on May 18, 1996 and was blessed with 2 children: Ashley who is 17 and Hunter is 15 years old. Eddie worked in multiple customer service oriented positions including a 16-year career with Home Depot followed by his most recent 14 years with Honeydew, Inc.
Eddie was a loving and devoted husband and father. He had an incredibly positive attitude about everything in life and was dedicated to his family, church, and community. He volunteered as a leader with Boy Scouts and chaperoned Youth outings. Among his many talents he was an Amateur Comedian, "Professional" Youth Sports Advisor/Coach, Mentor to all, Passionate Soccer player, Personal Cheerleader for Lisa, Ashley and Hunter, Avid story Teller, Prankster, Racing Fanatic and Hero to his children.

His competitive nature was defined with his life motto, "Play 2 Win". It was also clear when coaching, motivating, and encouraging his team while unintentionally entertaining the adult spectators with his loud creative phrases: "For the love of Jesus, somebody GO GET THE BALL!" and "This is not a movie, stop watching the game and get in front of the ball!"

During his fight with cancer he loved and lived every moment he was given and was never robbed of who he was. He was given to us to do a job and he simply completed the task too fast. He remained true to his character until God called him home.

A Golden heart stopped beating, two hands were laid to rest. God broke our hearts to prove He only takes the best.

His spirit lives on in his loving wife, Lisa; his children, Ashley and Hunter; father, David Beale; sister, Eileen Beale.
