Milburn (Mib) A. Beal, age 70, from Maryville, was called home by the Lord unexpectedly on Thursday, December 2, 2021. Mib was a kind and sweet soul who never met a stranger. His departure leaves a void for many friends and family. Since his retirement as Garage Mechanic at the Blount County Sheriff’s Office, Mib has enjoyed working on his farm caring for his many horses, dogs, and cats. He also enjoyed fishing in local ponds, lakes, the ocean, motorcycle riding, wood-working, and camping. Mib was very proud of his military service in the United States Marine Corps. He is preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Jett Beal. Mib is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 24 years, Wendy Bass of Maryville; sister, Lavon Ward; brothers, Donnie Beal, David Hatcher and Darrell Beal, all of Maryville; and a large extended family. The family will receive friends on Monday, December 6, 2021 from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM at Smith’s Trinity Chapel with a funeral service at 7:00 PM. Family and friends will assemble on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 1:00 PM at Piney Level Baptist Church for a graveside service. The family is very appreciative of the community of love formed by his many friends and family. In lieu of flowers and in memory of Mib, the family requests donations be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
