From: Rheanne Perry
My deepest condolences to the Beck family, Mr.Beck will be greatly missed. He was a staple of my childhood on Boundary Rd. Always there with a smile, wave and a shout of hello as my sister and I walked home from school, an open wallet when we came around for school fundraisers, and heartfelt compliments for our Christmas cookie baskets. I'll remember him for his birdhouse out back he was always inviting us to see, his bicycle rides with Charlie, and his ready smile and kind personality. He will be greatly missed.

Our most sincere condolences to Elizabeth, Andrew, Arthur & families.  Our friendship with Olef began when he resurfaced our driveway with stone. We were not only impressed with his skilled workmanship but who he was as a human being. He was hard working, disciplined, generous, kind and truly a role model to us all. As a neighbour we often would cross paths out walking in the worst snowstorms because we knew exercise was important. Olef often spoke fondly of his adored Elizabeth and his two boys. He will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.  Linda & Gord
