Hi, my name is Daniel Zaiter and I'm fundraising on behalf of the Randolph Police Department for Officer Michael Beal who was tragically killed in a car crash Saturday, May 14, 2022 at the age of 61. I am a coworker but more importantly a friend and if you've read this far, please continue because this "kind" soul leaves behind 8 children, 5 grandchildren, and a wife of 36 years.
Mike was close to retirement and proud of all 8 children, the youngest of whom, Thierry was graduating that fateful day. He was on his way to pick up his wife Carol when he was involved in a crash. Carol was dressed and waiting for Mike so they could attend Thierry's graduation from Nursing School at UMass Lowell. Thierry, on stage searching for her parents in the crowd, located her brother Liam in tears. As you can imagine, no words are able to convey how a day of celebration turned into a living nightmare. What makes this travesty even worse is who Mike was as a person.
"Kind" is the word that keeps coming up when Mike's name is mentioned. He was a devoted husband, caring family man, loyal friend and courageous police officer who devoted his professional life to serving the Town of Randolph for over 35 years. Whenever a member of the police department was in need, Mike was one of the first to give...whatever he could. I ask everyone reading this to donate "whatever you can" for a man that did the same.
All funds will be given to the Beal Family and used for funeral services and all of life's unexpected expenses. On behalf of the Randolph Police Department, I thank you for supporting a man who supported so many throughout his life. Mike leaves behind his wife Carol, his children Courtney, Brittany, Kellsey, Kiernan, Liam, Ainsley, Hayley, and Thierry as well as his grandchildren Steven, Salvatore, Finley, Michael and Maeve.
