Ralph Leon "Beanie" Ward Obituary
Ralph "Beanie" Leon Ward, age 70, went to be with his Lord in his home in Lecanto, Florida surrounded by his family on April 14, 2018.
He was born on August 18, 1947 in Martinsville, Indiana to Ralph Ervin and Wilma (Medley) Ward. He attended Martinsville High School where he left his senior year to join the Navy. Beanie served as a Navy Seabee during the Vietnam War and continued his service retiring after 21 years as Chief Petty Officer. On December 14, 1974 he married the love of his life Nancy Rosalyn Patterson and together they raised one daughter, Crystal, a true Daddy's girl. Beanie and Nancy enjoyed family vacations and time spent with family and friends. Beanie worked as a construction project superintendent for over 30 years.
As the eldest of six children he is survived by his wife, Nancy, daughter, Crystal, a sister, Betty Jo, brothers, Victor, Donnie, and Ronnie, his mother, Wilma, and loving grandson, Noah, along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.
It was Beanie's love for his family, pride in his work and military service, along with his infectious laugh that made him a truly great husband, father, brother, and Papaw.
