Todd Beck, 51, left us to be with the Lord on December 19, 2020. He died living his dream aboard his sailing catamaran, “Rather B Here” in St. Pete, FL surrounded by his family.
Born March 21, 1969 in Magnolia, AR. He was proceeded in death by his mother Karen, stepmother Catherine and father-in-law L.D.
Todd graduated from the University of Arkansas. He met the love of his life, his wife Melanie. Their first date was attending an Arkansas Razorback football game. Together they had two beautiful children, Zac and Mikala, and embarked on 29 fun adventurous years of marriage.
Todd was a die-hard Razorback fan. Todd and Melanie recently fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning a sailing catamaran. He loved Jimmy Buffet and together they traveled the world to see his concerts.
Todd had such a strong and gentle spirit. He has touched so many lives with his bright smile and huge personality. He never met a stranger and was always willing to help.
He is survived by his wife Melanie Beck; son Zachary Ty Beck; daughter Corporal Mikala Nicole Adams of The United States Marines (husband George); two grandchildren Kaylee and George all of Orlando, FL; father R.L. Beck (wife Sue); brother Jerry Beck of Arkansas and mother-in-law, Gail Williams of Orlando.
Memorial Services will be held Sunday, December 27 at 11:30 a.m. at Collison Carey Hand Funeral Home in Winter Garden, FL. The service will be live streamed for those unable to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to one of Todd’s favorite organizations, BabyDJ.org. He volunteered last year and was looking forward to volunteering again this year. This organization makes it possible for impoverished families to provide a wonderful holiday experience for their children. Baby DJ also has several other charitable events throughout the year to assist families in need.
Memories of Todd will be treasured forever. He will be remembered by all for his love of family, many friends and crazy adventures.
The family requests that everyone dress as if you are going to a Jimmy Buffet concert.
