Beck, William F.
William F. "Bill" Beck died peacefully in Wallingford on 05-05-2013 at age 86.
He was born in Brooklyn NY to the late William and Helen Beck. The family later moved to Stamford CT where he was raised. After WWII service in the Pacific Theater with the US Navy, Bill worked as a dairyman for Bordens Diary in Stamford for 35 years. Moving to Wallingford in 1978, he retired from Veterans Memorial Medical Center at age 70. When younger, Bill loved driving vacations (Maine, Missouri, Texas and other places). He also enjoyed walking along Durham Rd, Friday night church dinners at United Church in Durham, and engaging friends and neighbors in jokes and conversation. Bill is survived by his sister Mary P Ball of Connecticut, brother Thomas C Beck (Grace J.) of TeXas, and many nieces and nephews, all of whom grieve his loss and miss him every day. His family would like to express their thanks to the staff on Tamarack floor at Village Green for their exemplary care in the last months of his life, and to his neighbors for their kindness and attention during his illness.
