Mike was employed with several security companies, was a weapons trainer and a courier. He attended Indiana State University and Indiana University with an interest in pre-law. Michael was proud of his Native American heritage and studied the ways of the people. He lived with the Sioux at one time, and participated in their ceremonies, cherishing his gifts from them. Michael was a devoted Catholic, and a member of Sacred Heart Church since his baptism in 1963.

He is survived by his mother, Mary Catherine Beatty of Clinton; father, Carl E.

A private family celebration of life will be held. Michael’s friends and music buddies have created a memorial Facebook page (Mike Beatty Memorial) and plan to share music memories at a later jam. His family suggests that he be remembered for his laughter, sense of humor, singing, kindness to animals and helping friends in need. Please plant a tree or butterfly bush in his memory.
