In Loving Memory of Douglas Ray Beaty


With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, Doug Ray Beaty. Doug peacefully departed from this world on September 16, 2023, at the age of 62, surrounded by the love of his family. His legacy of compassion, dedication, and love will forever be cherished.


Born on January 15, 1961, in Farmington, NM, Doug was the treasured son of Harold and Barbara Beaty. Growing up in Aztec, NM, he attended Aztec High School, where he formed lifelong friendships and developed a deep passion for the great outdoors.


Doug embarked on a journey of shared dreams and unwavering support when he married his soulmate, Jeana, in March 1980, at the tender age of 19. With their union, they celebrated 43 remarkable years together, building a life filled with love and devotion.


A devoted father, Doug was blessed with two sons, Travis and Corey. His unwavering love and guidance enriched their lives in immeasurable ways, instilling in them the values of integrity, hard work, and resilience. Doug's heart swelled with pride as he watched his sons grow into remarkable individuals, and his love for them knew no bounds.


As a respected Gathering Tech in the oil and gas industry for over two decades, Doug found fulfillment in his professional pursuits. He approached his work with a diligent spirit, always striving for excellence and displaying unwavering commitment to his colleagues and clients.


Beyond the professional realm, Doug found solace and joy in the embrace of nature. Whether camping beneath the starlit sky, hunting amidst the beauty of the New Mexico wilderness, or casting a line into the tranquil waters, he found peace and serenity. These experiences allowed him to connect with his loved ones on a deeper level, creating cherished memories that will endure for generations. He attended the Aztec Church of Christ his whole life and helped build the current church on Ruins Road.


Doug will forever be remembered for the love he showered upon his family. His three beautiful granddaughters, Miranda, Marissa, and Makayla, were the light of his life. He doted on them with kindness and admiration, creating a world filled with laughter, love, and unforgettable adventures.


Doug Ray Beaty was a pillar of strength, a friend to all, and a compassionate soul. He will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Jeana Beaty; his devoted son, Travis James Beaty, and daughter-in-law, Andrea Beaty; his sister, Jenny Lee Megale, and his precious granddaughters, Miranda Jean Beaty, Marissa Lynn Beaty, and Makayla Ann Beaty.


A celebration of Doug's remarkable life will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2023, at 10:00 AM at the Aztec Church of Christ, located at 201 Ruins Road in Aztec. Pastor Solomon Jones will officiate the service, which will offer a space for family, friends, and loved ones to gather, share stories, and offer support to one another.


In this time of sorrow, let us all remember Doug Ray Beaty as a remarkable individual who left an indelible mark on our hearts and souls. May his memory be a guiding light, reminding us to cherish our loved ones, embrace the beauty of nature, and live with unwavering kindness and compassion.


Forever in our hearts, Doug will be dearly missed, but his spirit will continue to shine brightly within us all.
