Obituary for David B. Beck
Judge David Bruce Beck, the Dancing Bear, faithful husband, loving father, and grandfather left this world on Saturday, September 2 after a courageous, hard-fought battle with ALS. Dave was born on November 19, 1947 in Sharon, PA to his loving parents, Skip and Moie Beck. Dave was an avid athlete, runner, biker, and swimmer until his last days. He loved football, his family, and sitting on the porch listening to the rain. He was a dedicated volunteer coach with the Special Olympics, a selfless servant on many boards and organizations, and was connected to countless individuals and communities through his service. Dave was an alumnus of Seabreeze High School, Lafayette College, and UF Law School. He served as a 1st Lieutenant MP in the US Army during Vietnam. The Volusia County Veterans Court was named in his honor. His hilarious sense of humor, humble heart, free and loving spirit lives on through the countless lives he touched.
