Donald Glenn Beaty
Donald (Don) Glenn Beaty died peacefully in his sleep after a long illness at the age of 65 on July 22, 2022, in Orofino, Idaho.
Don was born on September 25, 1956 in Fort Dodge, Iowa and was preceded in death by his parents.
After graduating high school Don enlisted in the United States Army in August 1974. He completed Basic Training at Fort Polk, Louisiana and the Basic Airborne Course at Fort Benning, Georgia. Don was then assigned to Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 60th Infantry, 172nd Infantry Brigade (Airborne), Fort Richardson, Alaska where he spent his entire enlistment. His decorations and badges included the National Defense Service Medal, Basic Jump Wings, Canadian Jump Wings, Expert Shooting Badge (Rifle and Pistol), and his coveted Expert Infantryman Badge which he was very proud to have been awarded. He separated from the Army in 1978 with the rank of Specialist.
For many years after his time in the Army, Don worked numerous jobs in Nome and Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. In 1981 he traveled to the Philippines for the first time and made Angeles City, Pampanga his second home. He would work long hours during the summer months in Alaska and would return to the Philippines during the winter months to relax and enjoy himself. He had a larger-than-life personality and loved driving his 1944 Willies Jeep and Harley Davidsons around town visiting the many friends he had made over the years.
Don was cremated and his ashes were returned to his home in the Angeles City, Philippines where they will be watched over by his loving wife Maricris Beaty, daughter Marlliane Beaty and son Leo Beaty. He will be missed by his many friends around the world.
