Obituary for WILBUR MCKAY BEVERLY, JR.

Wilbur McKay Beverly, Jr., was born on March 15, 1966, to Wilbur McKay Beverly, Sr. and Lois Beverly of Lusby, Maryland. He transitioned from this earthly life on February 16, 2016, at 8:20 a.m. after a lengthy illness at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Wilbur, affectionately known as "Do Right," "Big J," and "JR" attended Calvert High School in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Wilbur was active in many sports and particularly enjoyed playing baseball and basketball. When Wilbur was a young boy, his attention span was rather short. On many occasions, in the middle of a game of tee-ball, Wilbur was known to find more interesting things to do on the field like playing in the dirt or just kicking his feet up in the air. Never mind that the ball was making a b-line straight at him to catch. His great-grandfather, Daddy Willie, would have to yell out, "boy get the ball" to bring his little wandering mind back to earth. Oh, trust us, he quickly snapped back to reality! Wilbur also enjoyed fishing on his grandfather's boat named "Miss Maxine." Even though Wilbur was petrified of the spot fish flopping around and carrying on as they reeled them into the bucket, he always seemed to muster the courage to grab his trusty old baseball bat and try his best to beat the "catch of the day" to death right on the boat floor.

As a young man, Wilbur always had drive and ambition. At the age of 15, he started his first job working at a laboratory in Solomons, Maryland. He maintained a number of jobs in various fields, showing his true determination. His passion to become an electrician eventually led him to a vocational program at Great Mills High School. His hard work paid off when he became a long-time employee with The Architect of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Wilbur retired from the electrical field, only when his health began to fail.

At the age of 20, Wilbur became a devoted father to his beloved son, JR. Wilbur and his son were a matching set, you never saw one without the other. They shared the same love of sports. As a matter of fact, the same way that Daddy Willie yelled out to Wilbur during teeball is the exact same way he yelled at JR during his basketball games (now isn't that something_?) There is something to be said about a man and his love for his children, so much so that Wilbur strategically added a daughter to his family, Aliyah. She held such a special place in his heart. She adored him, and he adored her. Later on, the apple of his eye, the lovely Miss A'Daytra came along and, oh wasn't he smitten with her! She was with her Dad 24/7, and he loved every minute of it. In 2008, another special little girl named DeAndrea came into Wilbur's life, and she was destined to become his daughter and he would become her daddy too.

Wilbur's personal relationship with God was developed at an early age, and he was a faithful member of Greater Mount Zion Church until his health started to decline. Wilbur enjoyed listening to all types of gospel music, but the old-time spirituals were his favorite. It was actually at church that Wilbur met Lisa Brown in 2008, and the next Harlequin Romance Novel was fated to begin. They were inseparable. Wilbur adored Lisa and she adored him, so much so that on Christmas Day 2011, Wilbur proposed.
Oh boy, wasn't Lisa the happiest lady on earth! She just wondered what took him so long. She said "yes" and on August 30, 2013, Wilbur and Lisa married on Solomons
Island and blended their loving families together.

Wilbur made an impact on every life he touched by his jokes, smiles, and genuine love for others. Our lives will never be the same without him. He leaves to cherish fond memories: a devoted wife, Lisa Beverly; mother, Lois Beverly; father, Wilbur McKay Beverly, Sr. (Rose); one son, Wilbur McKay Beverly III; three daughters, A'Daytra, Aliyah, and DeAndrea; three grandchildren, Jordan Beverly, Jada Baker, and Nahla Baker; two grandmothers, Edith Taylor and Ernestine Beverly; two brothers, Clinton Beverly (Ingrid) and Bryan Parker (Traci); sister, Michelle Niles; mother-in-law, Maxine Brown; father-in-law, Joseph Brown, Sr. (Glenda); godmother, Celeste Weems; sisters-in-law, Angela Brooks (Kevin), Mercedes Beverly, and Teona Brown; brother-in-law, Joseph Brown, Jr.; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
