Hi, my name is Tyler Beck and I am asking for help to cover costs for my Dad's memorial service. My Dad contracted COVID a few weeks ago and had to be hospitalized, eventually needing to be put on the ventilator, dialysis, and other various treatment. Unfortunately, the treatment only caused further complications and he passed on October 9th, 2021 at 1:30 am at Frederick Health Hospital.
My Dad was born May 6th, 1960, and grew up all over the country as a military brat. He served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years after joining soon after High School, following in his father's footsteps; right before retiring from the Navy in 2000, he met my mom and they fell in love instantly. They had me shortly after meeting and had my sister, Caitlynn, a couple of years later. He was a great man that always found humor and joy in every situation. No matter where we were or what we were doing, he would make us laugh and embarrass us with his over-the-top, loud laughing. My favorite childhood memories are him taking my sister and me to our backyard late at night when it was dark and playing flashlight tag for hours, or him taking us to the park simply to chase us around yelling, "Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, I'm going to bounce on your head until you look dumb!" (corny, yes, but always made us laugh), or him playing The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and us watching him play for hours and hours, eventually making our own characters and delving into the game for years to come. My Dad was hardworking, dedicated, kind, and caring; everyone that knew him would say he was the kindest person they knew, always making dumb little jokes (most being inappropriate lol), and spreading joy wherever he went. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, coworkers, and every person that he came in contact with in life.
I am asking for help to assist my mom with paying for his memorial service and associated costs. This would be of great help to my family and take a very large amount of stress off of our shoulders in this very difficult time. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated, no matter the amount.
