1942 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
THOMAS BECK Thomas Eldon Beck, 75, of Boulder City, passed away January 26, 2018, after a long battle with heart and lung problems. He was born October 26, 1942, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Eldon and Florence Beck. Thomas had four sisters, Dorothy, Linda, Christy and Shirley. After high school, he joined the U.S. Navy and went on to complete four years. While on leave, he came home to marry his school sweetheart, Oleta. Thomas completed carpenter school and then worked at Capp homes in both Iowa and California, as well as Beck Built with his father before he and his family made the big move to Nevada, where he worked as an apartment manager while putting himself through HVAC school and finally working for the Fashion Show Mall until his retirement. Thomas and Oleta were married for 53 years and had two beautiful daughters, Kimberley and Rhonda; five grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. After his wife's passing in 2014, Thomas found a closer relationship with his church and God that brought him comfort during the years without Oleta. Thomas was a selfless family man who was strong but silent and he touched every life he came in to. He will be missed and cherished by all. Service will be at 11:30 a.m. Friday, February 2, at Bethany Baptist Church, 210 Wyoming St., Boulder City.
