Farrell C. Beals

Farrell C Beals was born November 22, 1935 to Charles "Chuck" Solon Beals and Roziel Cluff in Pima. He was the fourth of six children: Chlorine, Florine, Solon, Farrell, Alden, and Darrell. He grew up on the family farm in Pima. He attended Pima schools and played football. He graduated with the class of 1953. He married his sweetheart Sandra Annette Mulleneaux on January 18, 1955 in the Mesa, Arizona Temple. They resided in Pima most of their married life. They had six children; Monty, Rick, Tammy, Tracy, Tonya, and Shane. Farrell loved going hunting with his dad, brothers, and son's. The family had a cabin on Mt Graham and had many wonderful memories there fishing, playing card games, and sitting around telling stories. Farrell was a "Jack of All Trades". He did a little bit of everything and could do almost anything. Some of the jobs he had were running the Brooks Daley Dairy, homesteading a potato farm in Idaho, driving a cement truck, working at the packing plant in Safford, Lindsey Creamery, Weech and Taylor making brick and construction, Surveyor at M&M Sundt, drove cement truck at Portland Cement Plant, CKC, Owning and operating the Richfield gas station, Surveyor at the State Highway Dept., Selling Beehive food, he was a mechanic and drove train at Phelps Dodge, built cabinets with Ross Smith, and he owned his own janitorial business for 20 years. On August 5, 2000 Sandra passed away which was a very difficult time for Farrell. He spent most of his time after that serving in the temple. He would drive to Mesa each week to attend the temple. Once the Gila Valley Temple was built he would spend Tuesday- Friday doing service in the temple. He loved being at the temple where he could feel close to his Savior and his sweetheart. Farrell passed away January 22, 2021 at his home in Pima surrounded by family. He is survived by: his children, Monty (Loa), Rick (Christi), Tammy Kendall, Tracy (Patricia), Tonya Larson (Royce) and Shane (Brandy); 26 grandchildren; and 21 great-grandchildren; and one on the way. He was preceded in death by: his wife, Sandra, a son-in-law, Reginald Kendall; grandchildren, Ashley, Jeffery, Vangaleih; his parents; and his siblings. What a grand reunion they are having.

Lots. Of sweet memories of your Mom and Dad! They used to come visit us when we lived in Widows Cove and we played cards and visited. They only had Monte and Ricky then. We had our Reecia girl. I remember your mom telling the boys now you boys behave! I always enjoyed our friendship and I missed them when they moved to Idaho. I loved to hear your dads jolly laugh! Later it was my pleasure to have your dear mother as a councilor in the Primary. We also did Relif Society music together. We shared our secrets about our forthcoming babies. Wonderful memories of your mom and dad and their friendship with Reece and I. My love to you all. Together Again.

Before I was old enough to go to school my mother, Wyona took me with her to visit with a neighbor, Roziel Beals who lived in a small wooden house just south her new home that was under construction. From that visit and further experiences I was convinced that she was my aunt, because only an aunt was ever that nice to me. As I grew older I was taught in a Primary class by the mother of Chuck Beals, I believe her name was Mary. I don't remember any lesson from a book but I do remember the thrill I felt from hearing stories of her youth in the South, being taught by the missionaries and moving to Arizona. Also the experience of being in her home on special occasions. One day I ran to my dad and told him that there was a tractor working across Chuck's field without a driver! He laughed and told me that Alden was driving it, he was just not big enough to bee seen. In those days we walked a lot. To school, the swimming pool, the movie theater, scout meetings.... Even at night I felt safe that friends were near when I walked past the Beals's on my way home. It was fun to watch Solon and Della walking between her home in town and his home on the hill when they were still in high school. It was fun to see the big smiles of the faces of Farrell and Sandra as they drove by. It was good for me to travel with Alden from here to Salt Lake where we learned personally from our visit with Spenser W Kimball of his friendship with our parents. Alden went on to Mexico and I went on to Great Briton. Always a friend of the Beals Family. Ben N. Bryce.
