  4. Bill Beadling’s Family
    I want to pass on my condolences to all of you with the passing away of Bill. I have known Bill for many years and had the chance to fish in the lake as a youngster and then get to work with him at Weirton Steel. He was always a pleasure to work with and was extremely helpful to me as a young engineer with the company. Bill and your mom were very special and I am sure that you as I will enjoy the fond memories of both of them as they are again together.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    God Bless,
    Bernie Kelly

  6. From Adrian Herman
    To my favorite distant cousin, many pleasant memories of times at the lake with the turtle soup and bock beer weekend parties. Also going to Pittsburgh Steeler football games with Bill and his brother Jim and enjoying fine dining afterwards. A good man to his family and friends, he will be sadly missed by all who knew him. My condolences to Bill’s family, so sorry I couldn’t be there for the visitation.

  7. I have 1000 memories of this precious man. I am not certain that I have ever met anyone who ALWAY has a smile on his face. He was so easy to get along with. He enjoyed the simple things that life has to offer. A wonderful family, good company and a great beer. I am certain that he is at peace with his lovely wife. May God bring peace an joy to the family. Bill you will always be remembered and MISSED. everytime I went back home I tried to visit with you. You always put a smilevon my face. I will see you again someday in heaven. Love, Donna Marino DeCarolis. Las Vegas
