Our beloved Connor Glenn Beattie, 29, passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on February 17, 2023, at his home in Reno. He was born July 9, 1993, in Carson City, Nevada to Chris and Tammy Beattie. He attended Fritsch Elementary, Carson Middle School, and graduated from Carson High in 2011. He was an excellent student and athlete. He played varsity football as both running back and outside linebacker. His team won the Sierra League Championship both years he played in 2009 and 2010. He also played varsity baseball and ran track. He graduated from UNR with a bachelor’s degree in marketing. He was currently working for United Airlines and loved his job.
Connor is survived by his mother and stepfather, Tammy and Dale Hansen; his sister and brother-in-law, Megan and Aaron Satterwhite; nephews Tyler and Austin Currier all of Carson City; his Aunt Vicki Bates of Gardnerville and cousins Matt and Scott Bates; Uncle Bob Beattie and Aunt Colleen Barber of Carson City; stepsiblings Bailey, Carly and Andrew Hansen of California; dozens of cousins, plus friends he kept throughout his life. He was predeceased by his father Chris Beattie; paternal grandparents Arville “Bud” and Joan Beattie; maternal grandparents Duane and Barbara Watson; and his dear uncle Robin Bates.
Connor made friends easily, was a positive, respectful, happy-go-lucky guy with a quick wit and outgoing personality. He was a peacemaker and had no time for drama and contention. He always left us with a hug and an “I love you”. He loved to travel and was planning to go to Scotland for his 30th birthday in July. He loved museums and would read every single display. He had a special bond with his sister, even though there was an 11-year age difference. He could talk about sports for hours, and for a short time helped coach the Freshman football team at Sparks High until his work hours made it hard to continue. He played adult kickball, softball, and even trained for MMA for a minute. He loved concerts, and all kinds of music, and would sing along and dance like nobody was watching. He was our bright light, we were blessed he was part of our lives, and he will be missed more than we can express. We will cherish the fun memories he left with us.
Services will be held on March 18th at 11:00 am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 411 N Saliman Rd in Carson City.
