Richard “Dick” Lee Becks

Richard (Dick) Lee Becks, 71, was born on May 25, 1946 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He passed away in his home on May 3, 2018, surrounded by his family. Richard worked at Newport Community Hospital as a Restorative Therapy Coordinator for 25 years before retiring in 2005.

Dick was a man of service his entire adult life. He served his country with dedication and his career with pride and commitment. But most importantly he served his family with a love that shall never be forgotten. Other passions in his life included fishing of any kind, but especially bass and perch. Whether watching or playing, golf was very dear to him too. Dicks love for the Green Bay Packers is hard to match. We all knew not to bother him for a day or two if they happened to lose. GO PACK GO!!! As tough as Dick was he was an absolute teddy-bear when it came to his beloved grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Elizabeth Johnson, his sister, Susan Kalous, and numerous Aunts and Uncles. He is survived by his wife Carol, his children Anthony/Tony (Beckie) Becks, Brian (Charmay) Becks, and Candea (Rick) Smartlowit. His grandchildren from Tony are Daisy, Jazmin, and Richard; from Brian are Jeff, David, and Hunter; from Candea are Traci, Kaylynn, Brianna, and CJ; along with six great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life will be held on May 11, 2018 at 5:00 PM at the American Legion in Cusick, WA. The celebration will be a potluck where we all can visit and reminisce about the good times. Every one of all ages are welcome.

Funeral Services will take place on May 26, 2018 in his birthplace, Green Bay Wisconsin.
