David earned two degrees while attending Michigan State University and worked with several companies during his career. He enjoyed traveling to many destinations in the United States and he took numerous ocean cruises, visiting many countries throughout the world. David battled diabetes throughout his life, starting at age 19. He overcame many obstacles from diabetes to live an active life.

The Beattie family would encourage any donations to be submitted to the American Diabetes Association (diabetes.org), or a charity of your choice. David was always a giving person and in the end, he donated his organs and his tissue to hopefully help others in their lives. David will be laid to rest in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, next to his beloved parents. May he be in peace and join with our parents in heaven.
