May 6 2018: BEAVER, Michael Phillip



Michael Phillip Beaver, age 39, of Acme, PA, passed away on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.  Born in Mt. Pleasant, he was the son of Linda Susan (McNair) Beaver and William R. Beaver.  He was a graduate of Saint Vincent College where he studied Political Science with a minor in Graphic Design and earned his Juris Doctorate from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.  He was a member of the Ohio and California State Bar.  Most recently, he served as the Assistant Parliamentarian for the U.S. Senate.  Prior to that, he served as Deputy Legislative Counsel for the State of California.  Aside from being a brilliant attorney, Michael was passionate about hockey and music, a talented cook, avid gardener, and gifted artist.  He was a loving husband to his wife Gilda, and he was a caring, fun, and patient father to his two young boys, Bradley Dastan Beaver (age 3) and Connor Milad Beaver (age 2).  His smart wit and dry sense of humor will be sorely missed.

In addition to his parents, wife, and children, Michael is survived by his brother Christopher Beaver and wife Eunice, nephews Benjamin and Aaron Beaver, his aunt Diana and uncle Bob Durbin and their children, mother-in-law Shahla Alishahi, father-in-law Reza Mossadegh, sister-in-law Mahsa Mossadegh-Sorn, nieces Isabella and Alexandra Sorn, and many other family and friends.
