William "Bill" Beil, 55, of Millsboro went home to be with the Lord, Monday, June 9, 2014. He was surrounded by his loving family.
Bill was born Aug. 7, 1958, in Germany to the late Geraldine (Reckart) Beil and Willis Alonzo Beil who survives him. In addition to his mother, Bill is also preceded in death by his brother, Michael Beil.
Bill was a 25-year veteran of the trucking industry and a retired Teamster. He was an avid NASCAR fan and loved working on his antique car and attending the annual Hot Rod week in Ocean City, where he was lovingly referred to as "the real Beil" by his friends.

Bill had three wonderful grandchildren, Kennedie, Sydney and Alexis and was anxiously awaiting to welcome "Will" into this world in September. Bill adored his godchildren, Seth and Miranda Spangler and his loving sister-in-law, Susan Spangler and her husband Danny, who was his best friend. He is also survived by his sister Marcia Tiedemann (Ron) of Glen Allen, Va.; and his brother Bernard Noyes Jr. of Virginia Beach, Va., as well as his loyal canine companion Maxi.
