Edward "Eddie" Bealmear, 65, of Terre Haute, passed away peacefully on September 21, 2013, surrounded by his wife of 42 years, their daughter, son, and a host of family and friends after a short battle with cancer. He was born on April 25, 1948, in Terre Haute, to Edward Bealmear, Sr. and Ruth (Banta) Bealmear.

Eddie followed his father's footsteps as a railroader with Conrail until he became disabled due to an accident. He had a great knowledge and took a lot of joy out of repairing small engines and lawnmowers. Eddie loved to reminisce about his childhood, especially all the mischief that he and his brothers got in to.

Eddie enjoyed his mother's special apple crisp. He never knew a stranger because of his friendly and outgoing nature. He had a passion for fishing, taking his boat out on the Wabash and White Rivers. He was an expert at filleting fish and his fried fish turned out perfect every time. He was an avid Colts and Nascar fan.

Eddie is survived by his wife Pamela K. Bealmear, daughter Tami Lynn (Sissy, affectionately called by her dad), son, David Lee Bealmear (who inherited his dad's love of fishing); a brother Terry Bealmear; sisters, Sally Hays, Ruthie Seeley; sister-in-law, Cheryl Bealmear; an aunt Delores (Vernon) Nelson; grandsons, Devan L. Waggoner, Justin Hild, Brady Hild, and Bryson Edward Bealmear; a granddaughter Kami N. Bealmear; and a great-granddaughter Addison Fay-Lee Waggoner; special friends Gary and Jeanie Brown; many cousins and many other friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister Donna Sue, brother Albert Bealmear, John Bealmear, Crafton "Butch" Bealmear, and a sister-in-law Sandra J. Bealmear, and a brother-in-law Steven R. Reed.

Visitation will be held from 10 until 2 on Wednesday, September 25 at Mattox-Wood Funeral Home.
