Patrick G. Beattie, 64, passed away early Monday morning following a brief battle with cancer, surrounded by his family. He was born on January 22, 1954 in Appleton to Maxwell G Beattie and Elaine (Hoffman) Beattie. Patrick proudly entered the Marine Corps at the age of 16 and 10 months. He was honorably discharged as a Sargent in the motorpool in March of 1975. Pat ended his career as a respite care provider for Winnebago County becoming “Uncle Pat” to hundreds of special needs children throughout the Valley.
Pat is survived by his daughter Sheana (Tyler) Laszinski, grandsons; Evan and Ryan, siblings; Jane (Jesse) Schiltz, Frank Beattie, Susan (Mark) Tillman and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
