Obituary of Raymond P. Beck

Raymond P. Beck, 83, of Gilbertsville, PA, passed away on August 23, 2022, at 6:35 a.m. at Reading Hospital.  


Ray was born in South Philadelphia, and lived in the Mayfair section before moving to Gilbertsville. In his early years, he worked as a delivery helper for St. Vincent de Paul. He loved watching old television shows like I Love Lucy, The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, and Gunsmoke; he thought they were still alive and examples of reality. He could always be found singing a tune with a smile on his face, especially when he had his favorite candies, M&M’s and circus peanuts. Ray’s continuous joy, kindness, and loving heart will be missed by all who knew him. 


He is lovingly remembered by Timothy and Sheila Oliver of Gilbertsville, and their family, Olivia, Tyler, Aaron, Amanda, and Sarah.
