Obituary for Dale Robert Beck

Dale Robert Beck, 68, of Idaho Falls, passed away October 24, 2017 at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center of natural causes.

He was born May 27, 1949, in Idaho Falls, to Lester Robert Beck and Pearl Richeson Beck. He grew up in Idaho Falls graduating from Idaho Falls High School.

He married Carol Lee Andersen March 2, 1974 in Idaho Falls. They were happily married for 43 years.

Dale was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was considered the neighbor watch guard. If there was a problem the neighbors knew they could call Dale. He taught his children to take care of your neighbor. He taught his children to be mindful of the elderly. He made sure our family took care of the elderly. He was known for mowing the neighbor's lawn and shoveling their walk.

He had a strong work ethic. He started working in Shelly at French's in 1969. His first position with them was a laborer. He worked his way up to be a Master Mechanic. Everyone that knew Dale knew if you wanted it fixed see Dale. He was well known for saying, “if you're going to do something, do it right the first time.” Though the company had several buyouts during his career he stayed there and retired in 2009 from Basic American Foods.

When he was not working at the plant he was busy keeping up with his three rental homes.
He also had an amazing sense of humor. He took joy in making people laugh. He also enjoyed the outdoors. He loved fishing, camping, 4 wheeling, and huckleberry picking. He loved activities the whole family could be involved in.

He is survived by his wife: Carol Lee Andersen Beck; three children: Michelle Beck, Idaho Falls; Travis (Amber) Beck, Idaho Falls; Tracey (Shane) Raber, Rigby; one brother, Scott (Carol Lyn) Beck, Pasco, WA; and 8 grandchildren.
