Bruce A. Beihl

Bruce A. Beihl, 84, son of Lola Beihl (nee Zierer) and John Beihl, of Batesville, Ind., and brother, Brent Beihl, of Berkley Springs, W.Va., passed away peacefully following a prolonged illness, in his home in Lithia, Fla., on July 2, 2017.

He is survived by his daughters Amanda Corbett and Sandie Chasey; five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren; and his partner, Judy Woolheater, and her daughter, Leila, and son, Steven, all from Florida. Also surviving are his sister, Barbara Wintz of Indiana, and his sister-in-law Lee Ann Beihl, of Berkley Springs, W.Va.

Having counseled many clients as an attorney in estate law, Bruce prepared instructions regarding his final arrangements. To the end, he was practical, thorough, and not without dry humor. His wishes will be carried out: A “cheap” cremation, no funeral or graveside service, no flowers or requests for charitable donations, but “if (we) must, a death notice saying something insipid, like the usual survived by loving family…”

That family however, while lifting a glass to toast an amazing person who is now journeying on his next adventure will pore over old photos, share his coming-of-age stories, and remind each other of his many interests, from motocross racing and scuba diving to metaphysics and organic gardening.
