Gerald Francis 'Taunttaunt' Beatty was born in Baton Rouge, served in the Coast Guard and retired from Dow Chemical after 35 Years of service. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 969. His "entire" world was his wife Janice. Family was everything to him. He wanted nothing more than to see our smiles and it was his mission to make our days better. He touched the hearts of everyone. His teachings are to be used as a gauge, to live our best lives, and to make him proud. He counted family by the memories made together, not the blood running through our veins. He was happiest outside in the yard, he could make anything grow. He was always busy tinkering in the shed, much to his family's dismay. Fixing things that weren't always broken and rarely were they put back together. What a life he lived! He was cared for by Jackson Veteran's Home for several months by a wonderful staff and passed peacefully at the Carpenter House on May 14th, 2019. The love of his life Janice Marie McCartt, married 68 years. Children: Janice Marie Day, Laurie Ella Keller and her husband Bob Kelleher.
