During his residence here Mr. Beck was engaged in the ranch and stockraising business and was numbered among the more successful farmers and stockmen of this section. He not only built up his own ranches but he was a man who felt an interest in all enterprises in the county and encouraged their advancement. He served our people as county commissioner several terms and was considered a very good official. He was a member of Canon City Lodge No. 610, B. P. 0. E. He was a devoted husband, a kind parent and a good neighbor. He was hospitable and ever charitable, being ready and willing at all times to help those in need.
Surviving are the widow and five grown children—Fritz and Joseph Beck, Mrs. M. B. Richardson and Mrs. Henry Schneider, all residing in the valley, and Mrs. Lizzie Ferguson residing in Pueblo, to whom are borne the sympathy of this community in their bour of great sorrow.
The funeral was held in Canon City at 9 : 30 a. m. Wednesday, the services taking place at the Catholic church there. "
