Christopher “Chris” Lee Beck, 42, saw his last sunrise Monday, Sept. 30, 2019. He was born Aug. 4, 1977 in Port Lavaca to the late Judy and Patrick Beck Sr.
He lived and survived a tough life that consisted of many losses, hardships, struggles and a lifetime of illnesses. Throughout all the hardships, Chris always had the innate ability to make everyone around him feel loved and bring a smile to everyone’s face despite the situation. His one of a kind soul will never be replicated and will always be missed. He was a loving father, husband and grandpa. He met the love of his life, Stephanie Beck, while attending Calhoun County High School, and shortly after, they had their only son, Derek.
Chris was a “jack of all trades.” There was nothing he could not do with a hammer and nails. Chris helped build beautiful homes, created breathtaking gardens and could even re-build cars. Chris enjoyed traveling with his wife, hanging out with his son and nephews, watching the Astros and more recently, spoiling his beautiful grandchildren.
His memory will live on through his wife, Stephanie; son, Derek (wife, Tara); brothers, Patrick Jr. “Bubba” (wife, Wendy) and Jesse (wife, Amanda); nieces, Kayla and EmmaLeigh; nephews, Brenden, Sean and Nate; and his grandchildren, Kaia and Kole Beck.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Judy; father, Patrick; grandparents, and several other precious family members.
