CHICAGO, Ill. – Jonathan Llewellyn Beal, 37, most recently of Chicago, Ill., beloved husband, brother, uncle, friend and son, passed away after taking a fall on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013.

Jonathan was born Nov. 27, 1976, to Ann Dickinson and Harley J. Beal in Greensboro, N.C., and grew up on the campus of Chatham Hall in Chatham, Va.

He attended Woodlawn Academy in Chatham, Va.; Sacred Heart School in Danville, Va.; and George Washington High School in Danville, Va. He received a BS from Wheaton College in Norton, Mass., where he was a Balfour Scholar and a founding member of the rugby team.

He was a steady presence who loved the outdoors, was a fantastic cook, a loyal and generous friend and the best uncle a child could ask for. Jonathan was deeply loved and admired by so many and will be dearly missed.
