Eugene P. Beck, Las Vegas, NV.

Eugene "Gene" Paul Beck, Sr., Leaves a loving family and a full complement of stories of a life well lived. He passed away at home surrounded by his loving family. As his wife of 49 years, Rose (Morrow) Beck, his three children, Christine, Eugene Jr., and Richard, son-in-law Anthony, daughter-in-law llona and Greta, and his six grandchildren, Maggie, Anthony, Sebastian, Zachary, Quinn, and Anastasia can attest, "Papa" Beck was ready with a story from Scranton, a turn of phrase to make you shake your head a bit, and a beer. He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters Joan, Helen, and Roselyn.
Gene was born October 19, 1946 in Scranton, Pennsylvania to Joseph and Rose McColligan Beck. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam War and was awarded a Purple Heart medal. He and Rose married July 26, 1969. He worked for several decades at Sanvik Steel in Scranton before moving with his family to Las Vegas in 2001. He loved to fish, garden, read Stephen King, hit the early morning rush at his local Dotty's and spend time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
Funeral services pending. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
