BECK—Richard Alan Beck passed away November 26, 2021, at the age of 64, following severe brain trauma.
Rick was born August 18, 1957, in Monterey, Calif. The family moved to Nevada City, Calif., October 1972 and got their first taste of life with four seasons. It was the record coldest winter in 100 years!
After high school, Rick attended trade school in Phoenix, Ariz., for heating/air-conditioning. In 1977, he married Pam Carmen and they had three children. He started his own heating/AC business. They later divorced.
He went on to obtain his stockbrokers license and worked for AG Edwards. He eventually moved to San Jose, Calif., and obtained his realtor license. He was property manager for a commercial real estate company.
In 2005, his mom and dad moved to Florence, Ore., and bought a boat. Rick moved up, and many fishing and crabbing trips followed. He loved Florence and the coastal weather. His parents utilized his skills.
His sister, Dawn preceded him in death in 1987. He is survived by his parents Lloyd & Lois Beck; three children, Mandi Karsikas, Cyndi Beck and Adam Beck. Also, three grandchildren; Emma, Ella and Cassius. An Uncle George Beck (Priscilla); Aunt Geri Harren, and numerous cousins.
His valued friends include those who gather at Bridgeport Market at the Port of Siuslaw River.
He is dearly loved and sorely missed. Our comfort is, that he is with God and has his heavenly body. The family will have a memorial in Grass Valley, Calif., at a future date.
Burns's Riverside Chapel Florence Funeral Home is in charge of all arrangements.
