Brian Beatty, known locally by some as "BB," passed away unexpectedly on Sept. 10, 2020, at the age of 72. He was a very gentle giant and lover of the earth and all that is good. Brian is survived by six nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Homer G. and Louisa G. (nee Pupke) Beatty; his brother, Oliver Glenn; and his sisters, Kim, Lynn, Blythe Cheslin and Gayle.
Celebration of life will be 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Cedaredge park at the pavilion. Please join a few family members and other local residents to remember this kind man that we will all miss so very much.
