Born in Shillington, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Roy Beatty and Margarite Harbster Beatty.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Dr. Dawn Marks.

Dick was a graduate of Valley Forge Military Academy, attended Bucknell University and graduated from Upsala College with a degree in business administration. He spent 17 years at Scott Paper Company in human resources before striking out on his own and becoming a number one best selling career author, appearing on “Good Morning America,” starting Brandywine Consulting Group and founding InterviewNow.com, a technology start-up in 1999.

Dick was a beloved husband, father, mentor and friend to many. He was always there to offer his time and career guidance to those in need. Dick was an avid outdoorsman, who often enjoyed camping, fishing and spending time enjoying the beauty of nature.

His infectious laugh, easygoing demeanor and intellect will be forever missed.
