Tanner Cole Beighley was born Wednesday, March 3, 1993 in Bemidji, MN to Randy and Marilyn (Stout) Beighley. He grew up in Bemidji and attended Paul Bunyan Elementary, Northern Elementary, Bemidji Middle School and graduated from Bemidji High School in 2011. While attending school, Tanner held jobs at KFC and Tires Plus. After graduation he went to Fargo, ND to work for Ellingson Drainage then moved on to North Star Field Drainage. Wanting to get out of the cold, Tanner decided to move to Florida for 4 months from October 2015 to January 2016. Not finding Florida to his liking-nice place to visit but didn’t want to live there- he moved back to Fargo and began working for Master Construction. Tanner loved his cars, snowmobiles and motorcycles and enjoyed working on them as well. Tanner learned many stunts on his bikes, practicing until he had it perfected. He loved his many, many friends and co-workers like family. He enjoyed laughing, joking, pranking and hanging out with his family and buddies. Tanner had a generous spirit, always living in the moment and doing what made him happy-living life to the fullest with a big grin on his handsome face!
He is survived by his parents, Randy and Marilyn Beighley of Bemidji; brother, Dustin Beighley of Bemidji; black lab, Mia of Bemidji; paternal grandmother, Edna Beighley of Blackduck; aunts and uncles, Peggy (Darrell) Gross of Blackduck, Susan (Todd) Wallin, of Wamego, KS, Jackie (Harold) Ferdig of Blackduck, Stacy (Clint Reeves) Lossing of Blackduck, Tiger (Joleen) Stout of Bemidji, Marlene (Bill) Kaushagen of Thief River Falls and Melissa (Tim) Jackson of Bemidji and numerous cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Jake Beighley; maternal grandfather, Pat Stout; maternal grandmother, Margaret Stout; maternal great-grandmothers, Lila Stout and RoseAnn Hamlin and uncles Gary Beighley and Scotty Beighley.
