at a kennel near Brookville, PA where he met Patricia Jean
Miller and they joined in marriage lasting 68 years. A 12
year second career as a Lieutenant on the Phoenix, NY

in life. Carl enjoyed a long retirement that included time with
his family, cheering on the Yankees and a good game of
pitch. He was predeceased by his parents, brother Hub
Beattie, a granddaughter Megan Beattie, and a daughter-
in-law Patty Beattie. Surviving are his wife Patricia, sons
