Roger V. Beatty 1942-2020

YOUNGSTOWN — Roger V. Beatty, 78, died early Thursday morning, Nov. 19, 2020, at his residence.

Roger was born March 29, 1942, in Youngstown, son of the late Vernon W. and Elizabeth Geist Beatty, and was a lifelong area resident.

He grew up in Hubbard, graduating from Hubbard High School in 1960. Following high school, Roger served in the Navy on the aircraft carrier Saratoga. He enjoyed golfing, fishing, reading and gambling. He was an avid Cleveland Browns fan and enjoyed watching the games every week. He loved to travel, especially to Aruba; but most importantly, he loved being around friends and family.

Roger was lucky enough to be loved by two women named Nancy. He leaves his wife, the former Nancy Wagner, whom he married Aug. 14, 1981, and his former wife, Nancy Schulz. Roger leaves his son, Brian (Kimberly) Beatty of Struthers; two daughter, Erin (Kevin) Kriss and Darla (Don) Hoffman, both of New Springfield; five grandchildren, Nick, Andy, Roger, Kristen and Mackenzie; and eight great-grandchildren. Roger also leaves his sister, Judith Alden in Wyoming; several nieces and nephews; and his beloved cats, and will be dearly missed.

There will be a memorial service at a later date.
