Albert George Beale (1870–1923)

from Register

Mr. A. G. [Albert George] Beale, head forester of the Bundaleer Forest, died on Friday last week. He had not been in good health for a considerable time, but on the day of his death followed his usual routine of work until about noon, when he complained of being unwell, and retired to his house. He did not rally, and died a few hours later. The late Mr. Beale was born at Glen Osmond 53 years ago. When he was five years of age the family removed to Mount Gambier, his father being connected with the Forestry Department there. On leaving school he entered the post office service, but subsequently changed over to the Forestry Department as a cadet under his father. From there he went to Wirrabara, later to Bundaleer Forest where he completed his training, and afterwards to Redhill, Mount Brown, and Quorn, and then as head forester at Belair. From there Mr Beale went to Port Lincoln, and afterwards to Mount Gambier succeeding his father, who had retired, and 14 years ago he went to Bundaleer Forest, where he carried out his duties as head forester in a most conscientious manner. The deceased was a member of the Masonic craft, and was a Past Master of Port Lincoln and Mount Gambier Lodges. A widow and a family of six survive, the oldest of whom is 16 years of age.
