Tony Raymond Bean, 43, of California, MD passed away on January 17, 2022. Tony was born on September 20, 1978, in Leonardtown, MD. He was born just nine blissful months after the marriage of his parents, William B. Bean Jr. and Connie A. Bean of California, MD.
Tony was preceded in death by his brother, Billy Joe Bean, maternal grandmother, Addie Marie Biscoe, paternal grandparents, William B. Bean, Sr. and Gertrude Mae Bean, and great grandmothers, Gertrude Goldsmith, Edna Fannon and Lillian Gentry.
Tony was a lifelong resident of St. Mary’s County. He graduated from Leonardtown High School in 1996. He started working for the family business, C.A. Bean Inc. while he was still in high school. In the early days, Tony and his brothers would leave school and head straight to the asphalt plant to fill silos for the next day’s work. He continued to work for the family as they expanded into paving the tri-county area. Tony did his best work when he was trying to avoid working, spending much of his time talking to everyone on the crew, inspectors, and anyone who would listen.
Tony enjoyed professional wrestling and his beloved Washington Redskins, watching both at any opportunity. Tony never met a stranger; he would talk to anyone and everyone even if it was simply to hear himself speak. The family considered him a professional joker for the sake of making others around him crack a smile. When getting the chance to speak with his nieces, he would make sure they knew he loved them and that they had the best uncles on the planet to watch over and protect them. He enjoyed spending time with his nephews and watching them fish, though he never took part himself, but making sure they had a few snacks (particularly his favorite Wendy’s Frostys).
Tony is survived by his parents; son, Riley Joseph Jones Bean; sisters, Theresa C. Bean (California, MD) and Stephanie L. Bean (Leonardtown, MD); brother, Shawn L. Bean (Leah) (California, MD); Nieces, Krishus E. Bean, Taylor M. Bean, and Laurel M. Bean; Nephews, Justin C. Harmon, Adam Vandrasco, Alex Vandrasco, and Camden W. Bean.
