Tommy Lee Beck of Eureka Springs, Arkansas was born July 28, 1928, in Sioux City, Iowa to Bernard (B.C.) and Thelma (Olson) Beck. Tommy passed away February 3, 2022, at his home in Eureka Springs, Arkansas at the age of 93.

Tom loved the Ozarks and Eureka Springs, he searched for people that he could help. His heart was huge and guided by God. Whom he loved deeply. He had hiked every State Park in Arkansas at least 3 times since he started coming to the state in 1970. He loved the peace and beauty you find on every turn and every trail. He could meet a total stranger and have a new friend. And if prayer is what you needed, Tom just wouldn’t say, “I’ll pray for you”. You could rest in the fact that he actually would. 

On March 22, 1975, Tommy was united in marriage to Nadine L Turnbow whom preceded him in death. He is also preceded by his parents B.C. and Thelma Beck.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to Cup of Love Ministries, 4032 E. Van Buren, Eureka Springs, Arkansas 72632. Arrangements are under the direction of Nelson Funeral Service. Online condolences may be sent to the family at
