Raymond Lee Beck, 78, of Dawsonville - master fly-tier, biscuit maker, fisherman, deer hunter, and die-hard Georgia Bulldog and Atlanta Falcons fan - died at home with his family on August 3rd, 2020.

Raymond was retired from Lucent Technologies where he worked for 30 years.

Raymond loved anything involving food - especially birthday parties with cake and family gatherings with banana pudding. He was especially fond of Denise’s Coconut cake, Susan’s German Chocolate cake, and Gaye’s mashed potatoes and gravy.

He was a master craftsman, talented artist, and animated storyteller.

Raymond is sadly missed by his wife, Jean, of 47 years; his children, Rodney & Lisa Beck - Flowery Branch; Denise & Cliff Heard - Thomasville; Robin & Rodney Mathis - Gainesville; Susan & Randy Allen - Gainesville; Kristen & Dustin Gee - Dawsonville; Katrina & Matt Koppin - Lula; special daughter, Harmony Gee - Dawsonville; and his constant companion and best friend, Sam the Golden Retriever.

Above all, his Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren were his absolute pride and joy. Grandchildren: Melissa & Andy Chapman; Dustin & Tiffany Heard; Robby Mathis; Patrick Allen; Caleb Heard; Clara-Rae & Bonnie Koppin; Jackson Gee. Great Grandchildren: Anabelle & Brady Chapman; Tristan & Tatum Heard.

Raymond is also survived by Brothers and Sisters: JW & Gaye Beck - Oakwood; Linda & Jim Jahnke - Gainesville; Sandra Chapman - Gainesville. He was proceeded in death by his brother, Horace Beck.

He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family and friends. His sweet smile, gentle eyes, caring heart, loving embrace, and unconditional love will not soon be forgotten. Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate his life and find comfort that he is in heaven watching over us where he will finally get the big buck, cast the perfect fly line, and have a skybox view when the Dawgs win the National Championship and the Falcons win the Super Bowl.

The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Tuesday August 4, 2020 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Bearden Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday August 5th, 2020 at 2 p.m. at Bearden Funeral Home Chapel. Rev. Cory Gilleland and Rev. Scott Wilson will officiate. Interment will follow at Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery.

Raymond used to love to come to our house on Saturday mornings and eat breakfast. He enjoyed eating as much as anyone I ever knew. In all the years I knew him, I never recall him ever being mad. He was such a gentle soul and will greatly be missed. I wish we could have spent more time with him in recent years. His service today was so sweet and totally Raymond. I believe he would have been so pleased. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love to you all.

I will always remember my uncle Raymond. Special times and fishing trips out on his boat with my daddy. I looked up to Katrina and Krissy so much just like they were my big sisters along with my big sister Katrina. I always thought it was such a treat to get to stay the night with uncle Raymond and Jean. Even as I got older, If I was in need they were there. When I got old enough to have my own home for the first time and be able to be living by myself, I didn’t have a couch. Robin sent me her daddy’s number and said I think he has some help for you, he wants you to please give him a call. I called and they had me come get their living room couch out of their house to take home with me. It wasn’t much but it was just what I needed and they were there for me when I needed it. As they always have been. Raymond was one of the kindest man that I had ever met. He always made me laugh. Everyone knew he was an avid fisherman. He will be dearly missed by all of the Beck family. Such a gentle soul. .

When Linda and I would visit Jean and Raymond. He would make sure that we would go out to shop so he could show me his fishing lures and would tell me how he made them. He would show me his favorite lures and showed how they would move in the water. He will be greatly missed.
