Pool+Spa is saddened to report that Ben Beale of Aquatic Leisure Technologies has passed away. The 47-year-old died suddenly of a suspected heart attack on 24 April while holidaying with his family.

Beale was training for a charity boxing match to raise money for the children’s charity ToyBox, following his son’s battle with a rare form of bone cancer. While his son made a full recovery, Beale was inspired to raise money for those families who are not so fortunate. His fundraising page is still live; to donate, visit https://rqcc2017.everydayhero.com/au/toybox-fundraising-3.

In a family statement, Beale’s father Lew said, “One of my great joys of life has been coming to work together on a daily basis in the family business. At the moment we are wrapping our arms around his wife, Sarah, and his children.”

“He was my brother first but also my business partner. We were extremely lucky to be able to work so closely together in business and still enjoy a glass of red together as a family. We are devastated to have lost a great leader, family member, colleague and friend,” said Lynley Papineau.

“Ben was a people person and built many strong business relationships that formed the platform for success for ALT. We will all unite together at ALT and continue to build the business, taking strength from Ben’s legacy.”

Our thoughts go out to Beale’s family, friends and colleagues.
