I am heart broken tonight because I just found out about Mr Beck. I went to check on him because his phone gave a funny message. I knocked on the door and no answer my heart sank he must be in the hospital and a neighbor
Came and said he has passed. Mr Beck was our friend for a very long time. He always wanted me to have fresh vegetables from his garden, he liked to sit on his porch and talk. He loved Rocko that my daughter gave to him when his first one died. He would always ride his golf cart through our community watching out for everyone and sharing his vegetables or just lending a helping hand. I did not know his family but he was family to Rodney and I. We sure loved him and his wonderful humble spirit. Always upbeat.
The last day I saw him I was leaving and rolled my window down and he told me to have a safe trip the last time I saw him was that Sunday 11/8 as the saying goes “If I had known that was the last time I would see him I would have talked a little longer”. Rest in piece my friend.
We love you, Rodney, Jackie and Buzz.

Mr. Beck always brought a smile to my spirit! He was the most optimistic person I have ever known! His wisdom of life, work, love of the earth, and his many talents will always be with me. He will be greatly missed on OUR HILL. Mr. Beck looked out for all of us who live in our NEIGHBOR-HOOD! We will miss his stories, laughs, & some jokes that we will keep between God & Beck!
Go Rest High on that Mountain, My Friend! Your work on this Earth is Well Done.
I'll see you on that river bank in Heaven!
