Timothy Lee Beck, 56, of Leola, passed away to the great trout fishing stream in the sky. Monday morning, February 19, 2018, “Tim” went peacefully from a long time illness. Tim will be lovingly missed by his mother, Sylvia D. Thomas; father, Barry J. husband of Peggy Beck; sisters, Taunja L. Beck, Tamara D. wife of Dennis Calabrese; son, Chance D. Beck; and Chance’s mother, Jennifer Lynn.
Tim was born in Lancaster, PA. He grew up in Leola where he enjoyed playing sports, including football, baseball, wrestling, gymnastics, swimming, motocross racing and fishing.
Tim graduated in 1979 from Conestoga Valley High School, where he excelled in shop class and Vo-Tech. After school Tim would work at his parent’s ARCO station pumping gas and working on cars. That afforded him the ability to buy his prized ’69 Camaro that he loved to race around town.
A mechanical genius, Tim opened his own business, “Trick Iron Motorcycle”. Tim’s true love will always be people. His big smile and charm lit up every room. Always making time for a Freeze & Frizz milkshake, Tim truly knew how to stop and smell the roses.
The Celebration of Life and sharing of memories of Timothy Beck will take place on Sunday, Mar. 18, 2018 from 1p.m. – 5 p.m. at the New Holland American Legion Post #662, 35 S. Hoover Ave., New Holland. All are welcome.
