John Robert Beaty

June 27, 1941 - July 28, 2015

John Robert Beaty of Carrollton, Texas passed away on July 28, 2015 at the age of 74. He was born on June 27, 1941 to Jim S. and Anna Bella (Burton) Beaty in San Antonio, Texas. He grew up in College Station and was an Aggie from day one. John married Jeanette Pfeiffer on August 4, 1973. She preceded him in death on November 23, 2008. He was a member of the Church of Holy Communion in Dallas, Texas.

John is survived by his children, Raychel Lee and fiancé Chris Lee of McKinney, Texas, Anna Finder and husband Kenny of Lewisville, Texas, John R. Beaty II and wife Tanja Nagels of Houston, Texas and Ruth Clevenger and husband Dale of Frisco, Texas; grandchildren, Jonathan Beaty, Katy Sutton, Sara Sutton, Jake Lee, Robb Lee and Amy Clevenger.

He was adored by many, especially his children who feel he taught them the true meaning of unconditional love. Upon reaching adulthood and having extensive family and friends of their own, they then understood the true meaning of sacrifice, and realized how pure that type of love is.

John fought for everything he ever had, and sacrificed so much so that his children would have a better life. His lasting legacy is the love shared by all who knew and loved him. He was larger than life and lit up the room with his personality and character. This loss will be deeply felt.

A memorial mass will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, August 8, 2015 at The Church of Holy Communion, 17405 Muirfield Dr., Dallas, Texas 75287.
