Randolph William Beale, Sr., was born on May 19, 1950 to Floyd and Lizzie Beale in the city of Conway, North Carolina. He received his formal education through the Virginia Beach public school system. He was a veteran of the United States Army and a member of Greater Harvest Baptist Church as well as a dedicated trustee of the same.

Randolph was an uncomplicated man who lived a simple life. He loved working on automobiles and was well-known as the neighborhood automobile mechanic and the friend who seldom turned away anyone who needed help if it was within his power to help them.

At his leisure he enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was a good father, a good listener, and an adviser who dedicated all to others which left little time for him. He had a great love for God and His word.

Randolph is predeceased by his loving parents Floyd and Lizzie Beale, his wife Hattie L. Beale, a sister Lizzie M. Whitehurst, a brother Willie H. Beale, and his paternal and maternal grandparents.

He leaves with us to cherish him a very special companion Sharon Hawkins; daughters, Toni M. Beale, Venita L. Beale, Danita Hawkins, Lettica Mickens, and Sharronna Benton; sons Randolph William Beale, Jr, and Ryan Beale. Sisters, Vinnie Riddick, June Beale, Catherine Beale;  brothers, Floyd Beale and Wallace Beale; twenty grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends. He will be missed by all who loved him.
