Just found out this week that Harvey Beck died four years ago. There are several pictures of him plus an obituary (from the NLTA Bulletin) on the In Memoriam page.

HARVEY BECK, 1923-2000

On March 13, 2000 we were all saddened by the passing of
Harvey Beck, a retired teacher and well known resident of
Carbonear. Harvey was born on Sound Island, Placentia Bay
but moved to Old Perlican at an early age. His teaching
career, which spanned 37 years, began in 1942 at Braggs
Island. He later taught at Change Islands, Channel,
Salmon Cove, Grand Bank, and in 1959 came to Carbonear
where he continued to teach until his retirement in 1980.
He loved the outdoors and after retirement he spent much
time camping and fishing "on the river".

Harvey loved to teach. He was a conscientious teacher,
highly respected by his students. His understanding,
sympathy, learning and integrity were worthy of emulation.
No one who knew him can forget his sense of humor and
kindly expression. A warm handshake or gentle touch on
the shoulder seemed to win friends wherever he went.

He was a devoted husband and loving father. To his wife,
Naida, his daughter, Eileen and his son, Bruce, our
heartfelt sympathy. May you find some small measure of
consolation in the words of the poet, Walt Whitman...

"He is not gone. He is just away,
With a cheery smile and the wave of the hand,
He has wandered into an unknown land,
And left us wondering how very fair that land
May be, since he tarries there..."

(Submitted by Wm. G. Barrett, colleague and friend)

-- from the October 2000 issue of The NLTA Bulletin.
