David Beckett Obituary

David Allen Beckett passed away Thursday December the 28th, 2023 at the age of 82, in La Jolla, California.


Adopted at three years old during World War II, his parents, Lucille and Charles, offered both he and his sister Jeanne a better life.  Dave served four years in the Air Force and later worked for two decades at Xerox.  In recent years he retired and moved to Mexico.


He is survived by his daughters Teresa and Wendy and his four grandchildren, his sister Jeanne and her extended family.  All send him their love and prayers on his way to a happier place.


A memorial service for the departing of his soul is scheduled for January 2, 2024 at  Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church in San Diego with Father Clement.   When it becomes available, his family will accompany his remains to his final resting place in the Arlington National Cemetery as per his request.  At that time, his family will celebrate his life in a reunion.  All family and friends interested in accompanying us, please contact one of his daughters.


While David suffered from years of depression, he was deeply loved and will be missed.  We wish you much love and peace on your next journey.
