He was married to Delores Dixon on June 4, 1971 in Lawton, Oklahoma. Being born into the military family and traveling around for a bit played a role into him joining the military himself in which he and his family were stationed in many locations including Washington D.C., Ramstein Germany, Minot North Dakota, Muskogee, Oklahoma (where he was a recruiter), Witchita Falls, Texas, Geilenkirchen Germany NATO AFB, and ending his career at Whiteman AFB near Warrensburg, Missouri. where he resided for 30 years.

During his military career he obtained his associates and bachelor's degree from Park University. After retirement Bearl began his career at the United States Postal Service, where he worked for 18 years before retiring again. Some of his passion and enjoyment came from playing golf, attending and watching NASCAR, cheering the OU Sooners and Dallas Cowboys, spending time with friends and loved ones. He was a devout Christian. He attended New Life Church in Oak Grove, Missouri for 20+ years. His humor, generosity and love for others was infectious. Everyone loved his personality and he was always the life of the party, if you don't believe me you could have asked him. He’s the one over in the corner singing “you ain't nothin but a hound dog, cryin' all the!” For the 3 years he has resided with his sweetheart, Barbara Kappus, who was also by his side at his home going!
