Ronnie Darrell Beck

June 22, 1956 - June 15, 2016

Ronnie Darrell Beck of Leonard passed from this life, surrounded by family on June 15, 2016, after a long battle with cancer.  He was born in McKinney to J.T. and Mozelle Stewart Beck on June 22, 1956, the 9th of 14 children.  He loved his family and friends dearly and would go visiting every chance he got.  He married the love of his life, Brenda Sadler, on October 6, 2004 after having dated for many years.

He was a proud man and a hard worker who would do anything he could to make a living.  He worked in the oil field for a time and worked hauling custom cabinets across the United States for JB Commercial Mill Works.  The thing he loved doing the most was junking.  He would get out and drive all day trying to find an old vehicle or pile of metal to haul off.  During his illness this was one of the things he missed the most.

He was preceded in death by his parents, J.T. and Mozelle Beck, a brother, Dale Beck, a sister, Sue Burke, a granddaughter, a great grandson, a niece and two nephews.

Family visitation will be Monday June 20, 2016 from 6 until 8 p.m. at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Chapel in Leonard.  Funeral services will be Tuesday June 21, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at the First Baptist Church located at 302 N. 2nd Street in Trenton.  Interment will follow at Burns Cemetery in Trenton.

Brenda and all, So very very sorry to hear of Ronnie's passing. I just loved him. He was a trooper! Many thoughts are with you at this time Janet @ Mercy Cancer Center Janet Jones, June 22, 2016 I only knew Ronnie for a short time when he would come in to the cancer center here in Ardmore for a treatment or a doctor visit. He always had a kind word to say, and would always tell me my hair looked great, I had cancer as well and had lost all of my hair. I work at the front desk in the radiation department. Ronnie will be missed, God Bless. Robin, June 22, 2016 God put his arms around you, and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered “Peace be thine”. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. My prayer for the family is that God gives you peace for the pain. I pray you are comforted by God in this time of sadness. May our fathers loving arms wrap us all in love. God bless and keep each of you, in Jesus name - Amen-

RIP Patsy hunter, June 18, 2016 Uncle Ronnie was one of the most amazing men we ever knew. He never met a stranger and always had a smile and a laugh to share with everyone. I can still see him now in his blue jean shirt and cowboy hat holding a cigarette and a cup of coffee. He will be missed so dearly. Praise God he is no longer suffering. We love you Uncle Ronnie and Aunt Brenda. Cindy and Doug Rogers, June 18, 2016
