Christen Beaty, born November 23, 1973, was found dead near the intersection of 130th and Lake City Way on October 22nd, 2017. He died just a few weeks after being evicted from his apartment.
Pastor Melanie Neufeld of Seattle Mennonite Church says, “He was a gentle giant of a man from the wilds of Alaska where his ex-wife and daughters still live and mourn his passing. He came to Seattle for treatment 15 years ago and stayed. He cherished his friends and his mother, with whom he kept in constant contact. He was always good for a BBQ in the park, a conversation, or an impromptu round of golf.”
Christen’s Leaf is placed at the Mini Park in Lake City. If you have photos or memories of him that you’d like to share, please post a comment below.
