He was born Feb. 12, 1928, in Cincinnati to Victor and Edith Frey Beischel.

He entered the congregation in 1942 and was ordained June 2, 1956. He then was an associate pastor at St. Philomena Church, Detroit, Immaculate Conception Church, Celina, and St. Andrew Church, Orlando.
In 1963, he volunteered to serve in the community's mission in Chile, where he worked in a parish in Santiago, then in Valdivia, where eventually he became pastor of Precious Blood Church and later business manager of the diocese of Valdivia. After more than 20 years of ministry in Chile, he then became part of the C.PP.S. Mission in Peru. He returned to Chile in 1995, serving as pastor of Christ the King Church in Valdivia until ill health forced his retirement.
