  1. My condolences to all the Beckwith family. I worked with Beck at SUNY Oswego and then reconnected when we wintered in Florida and ran into him at the golf course. It had been over 20 plus years but he remembered me. He was such a great guy; always smiling.

  2. I also worked with Beck waaaay back in the mid-1970s. He was a great guy; always smiling and a lot of fun. Enjoyed our time at the Rec Center at Hewitt Union and from time to time it was “Onondaga County Time!” Thoughts and prayers to his entire family
    – Steve “Hawkeye” Yablonski – and the rest of the rec crew

  3. God Bless You Beck! You were always good to my Mom and us kids. I will never forget you. Thank you for being part of my teenage life. May you rest in peace and I know the gates are fully open for you. My condolences and prayers to the family. Mike
