Obituary: George Beck, Jr., 65, of Free Soil. 

George A.

George was preceded in death by his father George Sr., and his son George Beck III.

He will be greatly missed by his son Robert (Malgorzata) Beck of Manistee; his daughter Tammy Block of Arizona; his grandchildren Parker Block, Matthew Cohen, Madisyn and Riley Beck; his mother Doris Sherman of Allegan; his stepmother Sharon Beck of Muskegon; and his sisters Carla Milbourn of Lansing, and Ginger Primich of California.
