What a wonderful man. He certainly had an impressive career.
It is a privilege to read about him.
Thinking of my friend Barbara tonight, and sending her and her entire family my condolences and love. I only met Bob Beck a couple of times, but on one occasion when I picked Barbara up in Los Altos, he was cooking away when I arrived. The kitchen smelled like heaven, and he immediately offered me tastes. I have loved hearing Barbara talk about Mr. Beck and her mom over the years. What a wonderful home and life they made for their kids.
I worked for him at the Palo Alto Lab, and thought him a wonderful man and manager. Pat Cook
To all the Becks -
I'm so sorry that you've lost a husband, father, grandfather. I know that you'll miss him a lot. May happy memories help you in this time of sorrow.
