William Samuel Beal Obituary
WILLIAM SAMUEL BEAL March 29, 1950-March 30, 2013 Sam went to be with our Lord on March 30, 2013, after a courageous three and a half year battle with pancreatic cancer. For 63 years, one of God's angels passed through this earth, dedicating his life to helping people wherever he went. He was born to Denver and Amy Beal, March 29, 1950, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Sam lived in Riverside most of his life. He graduated from Ramona High School, where he sang with the Madrigals at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. In 1967 he was selected to attend the Idylwild School of Arts, where he performed Brahms Requiem among other noted works of music. He completed his Bachelor of Science Degree in Pre Med at the University of Riverside (UCR) before attending the San Francisco School of Podiatric Medicine. After graduation from medical school, he completed his residency at the Corona Community Hospital. Upon completing his residency he was appointed Chief of Podiatry at the Veterans Administration Hospital at Loma Linda, CA. During his career, he built two successful patient practices and two Outpatient Surgery Centers: Hesperia Podiatry Surgery Center and Inland Outpatient Care Center. He was a Diplomat of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association. His research on wound care and surgery practice was published in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association and the Journal of Foot Surgery. He is still considered one of the most respected and knowledgeable doctors in his field of medicine. Sam was a devout Christian. He attended Harvest Christian Fellowship regularly, and he never let a day go by without reading his Bible. He was an avid golfer, and a forty-year member of the Canyon Crest Country Club, where he met the love of his life, Becky, in 1993. In 1999, Sam and Becky developed and patented the original wind deflector for the Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. The company, Vette Net, was licensed by GM in 2000 and is a thriving business today. Sam also loved to travel, his family and friends were always a first priority. He leaves a legacy of love, kindness and generosity. His example was to live life to the fullest, enjoy each day as a gift from God, and to give generously. He made the world a better place because of his loving spirit, his many acts of kindness and his unfailing generosity to so many. He is survived by his wife, Rebecca; his mother, Amy Beal; two sisters, Carol Stallings and Kay Theobald; brother, Hollis Beal; daughter, Kristen Wallace; step daughters Heather O'Hara and Amy Bracket; and two step grand-children, Kaitlyn O'Hara and Jacob Brackett. A celebration of life will be held April 10, 2013, at 10:30 AM at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside. A reception will follow at the Beal residence. Philippians 3:13 Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
