He was active with the Amherst, NH Recreation Baseball League and the Bedford, NH Blackflies AAU Baseball Team. He also served for several years as the President of the Amherst, NH Baseball Club.

Beck and his fiancée Hannah Smith of Manchester, NH; a sister, Patricia Johnson of Old Orchard Beach, ME; a brother and sister-in-law, Robert J. and Barbara L. Beck of The Villages, FL; a brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Richard F. and Kathleen C.
