Don Beck, age 88, entered into rest on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.
Don was born in Findlay, Ohio to the late Charles Glenn Beck and Mae Elizabeth Johns Beck. He proudly served in the United States Navy and was a member of St. John United Methodist Church. He loved to boat and fish on Lake Erie, and was a loving husband, father, and “Grandpa”.
He is survived by his wife of nearly 61 years, Dorothy Beck; three children, Georgia Vesely (Richard) of Evans, Duane Burgoyne (Dar) of Riga, Michigan, and Glenn Beck (Teri) of Mantua, Ohio; ten grandchildren; sixteen great grandchildren; brother, Thomas Beck (Bev) of Leesburg, Florida; sister, Marlyn Gensler of Monroe, Michigan; and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial celebration will take place at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, April 20, 2019 at St. John United Methodist Church with Dr. Jody Alderman officiating. Because Don’s life will be celebrated rather than his death mourned, the family requests that no black be worn to his service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to St. John United Methodist Church, 736 Greene Street, Augusta, GA 30901.
