They had three children: Larry Hugh Beall, Constance Angela Beall and Judith Susan Beall Brown. Hugh farmed, raised dairy cattle, worked for the Atomic Energy Commission in Los Alamos, N.M., and as a construction superintendent for Beall Construction Co., Lincoln, and Central Contracting Corp., Kearney, Neb. Angeline pre-deceased him, and Hugh later married Melissa L. Christensen in Lincoln on March 13, 1971.

Hugh was an excellent communicator who loved life and people. Hugh and Melissa traveled extensively, attending hundreds of communication organization conventions all over the world. The onset of polio in 1952 only briefly slowed him down, and he returned to work within 10 days of being released from the hospital. Hugh's friendly smile and love of people made him a favorite of others. He loved gardening, travel and visiting with others.
Parrott and Wood Chapel of Memories, an Overton Family Service, assisted the family with arrangements.
