Obituary of Joseph J. Beck, Jr.
Joe, affectionately known as “Papa”, age 80, previously of Glastonbury and Hebron, Connecticut passed away peacefully after his battle with Alzheimer’s disease on January 5th, 2021. Joe was a courageous man who was proud to have served our Country in the United States Marine Corps. He had an incredible work ethic as evidenced by his long career in Construction Management with Turner Construction. Joe had a passion for challenging projects and was known for his ability to apply his technical expertise and years of experience successfully managing large projects across the Country. Joe was an avid golfer, fisherman, and enjoyed trap shooting as a longtime member of the Andover Sportsman’s Club. Joe loved spending time with his family and making everyone around him laugh. He would generate hearty laughter each holiday season with the delivery of his “Three French Hens” line in the family’s annual rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Camille of 48 years; his children, Melissa Rath and husband Howard of Hebron, CT, Lonette Gloss of Glastonbury, CT, and Joseph Beck III and wife Nicole of Smithfield, RI; his grandchildren Kelsey and husband Aaron, Corey and husband Kevin, Alexandra, Samantha, Aidan, and William; his step-grandchildren Jacob, Macey and Maggie; and his great granddaughter Mackenzie. Due to COVID-19, there will be no public services and burial will be private. If you wish to make a memorial donation, the family kindly requests it be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, www.alz.com, using the tribute page created in Joe’s memory, to help those affected by disease and to support research for a cure. SEMPER FI!
