William Beck, 69 of Attica, passed away on Thursday September 18, 2014 at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. He was born June 4, 1945 in Attica to the late Albert (Frances Peuckert) Beck Sr.. Mr. Beck is preceded in death by his siblings Peter and Edward Beck; Lynn Kammerer.

William Beck touched the lives, homes and businesses of many people throughout his industrious career as the head of “Beck’s Carpentry”. Not one to embrace new technology, he preferred to renovate the old. His fingers were stained with the grease and dirt of his labors. Bill was a lifelong farmer and lover of animals including cows, pigs, goats, alpacas, chickens, dogs and cats. He also loved to garden and briefly operated the vegetable stand “Billy’s Farm Market” in Attica. His vehicle of choice was a Dodge Ram truck, but a tractor, four-wheeler or snowmobile would suffice. Bill was a successful turkey hunter and dabbled in golf and fishing. He enjoyed baseball, bowling in a men’s league and loved throwing horseshoes.

Bill greatly relished his family’s tradition of hard cider, wine making/sipping, as well as maple syrup production. He came from a large German family and had a large family of his own. He was proud of his heritage and fascinated by his grandchildren. It is true that a carpenter’s house is never complete and in his later years Bill remodeled and resided in the early 1900’s farmhouse in which he was born and raised. He always referred to it as “down home”.

He is survived by his children Julie A. (Frank) Makson of Attica; William J. (Brenda) of Attica; Thomas M. (Tracy) of Lancaster; Christopher A. (Melissa) of Attica; Joseph R. (Kelly) Beck of North Java; siblings Carl (Nancy), Albert (Jeanne), Fred (Melody), Mike (Julie) Beck, Gretel (Larry) Laing, Frances Beck, Pat (Dan) Racine, Edith Haise; 9 grandchildren,1 great-granddaughter, along with many nieces and nephews.
