Funeral Friday in Pineville for sailor dead in Mobile storm
PINEVILLE - A funeral will be held Friday for Kris Beall, one of at least three sailors who died in a fierce storm that blew up suddenly during a regatta in Mobile Bay.
Beall's wife, Amanda Allbritton Beall, says the funeral will be at 10 a.m. Friday at First Baptist Church of Pineville, with visitation Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Hixson Brothers Funeral Home in Pineville.
Beall will be buried at Greenwood Memorial Park in Pineville.
He was on the church building fund steering committee, and the family asks for donations to the fund in lieu of flowers.
Beall owned Kris Beall Construction LLC. His wife says the business grew from an enterprise he started as a high-school sophomore, building fences and caring for lawns.
