Kip Lynell Beal (65) passed away peacefully on May 2, 2019 after a long-term illness. He was born on February 5, 1954 to Lawrence Raynal Beal and Lillian Mathis Beal.
He graduated from Lehi High School. Kip married Elywna Ault on May 27, 1978 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Together they raised their three kids, Quaken, Brandi, and Dewlyn in Cedar Fort, Utah. He loved his wife, kids and grandkids very much and there was never a dull moment!
Kip was an excavator in early adulthood. He went on to work at Tooele Army Depot, then transferred to EG & G. He spent over 30 years between the two jobs. In school and work, he was known for his crazy sense of humor.
Kip loved softball and he played for many years in a Men’s Fast Pitch League in Lehi. For many years he also coached the local boys’ baseball team in Cedar Fort where he lived. He loved to be with his brothers and sons, hunting, fishing, camping, and riding motorcycles. He especially enjoyed seeing just how bad he could scare anybody that would ride with him in the dune buggy.
Kip was a story teller! He had a special bond with his mom and while she was alive, one of his favorite times was to visit on Saturday mornings to tell stories and make her laugh. And if you were sitting around a campfire with Kip, you were laughing!
He is preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence and Lillian Beal, parents-in-law Duke and Hazel Ault, his niece Terris Jean Kirkham, nephew Dace David Beal and several aunts and uncles. Kip is survived by his wife Elwyna, Cedar Fort; his children, Quaken Jess Beal (Christy Nielson), Brandi May Beal Hunt (Ryan) and Dewlyn Kip Beal; three grandchildren; his brothers, Thad (Linda) Beal, Dave (Larena) Beal, Scott (Jimmy) Beal, Rick (Shannon) Beal and sister Karen (Wally Lewis) Beal; and many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
At Kip’s request there will be no formal services. The family would like to thank friends and family for their love and support.
