Dr. Omar J. Beiler, 68, of Fishersville, Virginia, bravely passed away at home on April 29, 2020 after a brief, yet long, fight with lung cancer. He was incredibly loved and respected by his family and his colleagues for a life defined by deep intelligence, compassion, and integrity. He was a proud graduate of the University of Virginia School of Medicine and spent the majority of his career practicing in the Shenandoah Valley. His care was always gentle, full of compassion, and he gave never-ending support for every patient he encountered. He loved life, the outdoors, everything Christmas, and most of all, being Opa to his grandchildren.
Dr. Beiler is survived by his wife and greatest love, Lisa Kern Beiler; children, Kevin Beiler and wife Maja, Kristen Beiler Thomas, Linval Shakes, Ryan Shuler and wife Melissa, and Jaime Lucchetti and husband Andrew; grandchildren, Kiona and Iris Beiler, Daniel, Isaac and Grace Thomas, Rohan, Jamal, Elijah, and Braelynn Shakes, Luke and Grayson Shuler, and Isla, Liviana, and Hannah Lucchetti. He is also survived by his brothers, Mose, Phillip, Paul, and Luke, and their spouses; as well as Lisa’s family and numerous nieces and nephews.
Heaven is surely shining brighter now as Omar entered with his love of life, his smile that lit up a room, and his extraordinary personality. Memorial donations in his honor can be made to the Emily Couric Cancer Center, 1240 Lee St., Charlottesville, VA 22908; or Legacy Hospice, 14 Old Oaks Ln., Fishersville, VA 22939.
