Betsy, so sorry for your loss. Your Dad’s love of nature was what I most respected about him. He passed that on to many people at Westside.

I have great memories of Mr. Beck. He was a great, strong (and strict) 6th grade teacher and had a great sense of humor. He would not put up with much misbehavior but he also knew how to talk to kids, get their respect and be in their corner. He will be greatly missed and was a great role model.

Everyone has a teacher that they enjoyed learning from the Best, that would be Mr. Beck. He was my 6th grade teacher at Kingston. He just made the class enjoyable. I talk about how important to have a teacher who not only teaches but for students to enjoy their teaching. He was the Man! To me he was the Man of the Year!!! God Bless Him. To the Beck family, you had Incredible Dad!!!!! He was respected by many!! To the West Lafayette Community he will never be forgotten.
