Mr. Beck was born to the late Mr. and Mrs. Fred Beck in Hildebrand. The elder Beck arrived in the United States from Germany in the 1880s and homesteaded in the Hildebrand area.

The young couple moved to Hilt, Calif., where he worked for a year in a mill and for the railroad before taking a ranch job near Medford.
