Brock Emery Beagle, 40, passed away on June 27, 2022 at Novant Health New Hanover
Regional Medical Center with his loving wife, Caroline, by his side.
Brock suffered a massive stroke on June 8, 2022. He fought hard for weeks but was unable to recover from the damage he sustained from the stroke.
Brock was born on November 14, 1981 in Norfolk, Virginia to Sharon Buckner and Wayne Beagle.
Brock loved the water from the first time he encountered it until his last day on earth. He grew up surfing and skateboarding with his brother, cousins and friends. He graduated from Frank W. Cox High School in 2000. After graduation, Brock moved to Lake Tahoe for the ski season before moving to Wilmington, North Carolina where he spent the remainder of his life. Following in his father’s footsteps who was a builder, Brock became a skilled framer. He had remarkable talent with many plans and hopes for the future. Brock was full of life and loved by all. He spread his joy with his contagious laugh and smile. His presence constantly reminded others of the happiness in the world. He was genuine, kind and
sincere; but Brock’s greatest gift was his unconditional love for his family and friends and most of all his wife, Caroline. Brock found the love of his life three short years ago. Caroline and Brock married in October 2021. The love that they have for one another is a love that is searched for and rarely found. Brock touched the lives of many with his generosity and passion for life. His loved ones will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest.
