Randy Beck, 65, of Oshkosh, passed away suddenly at home on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021.

Randy was born on May 18, 1956, to Rueben and Eunice (Wendorff) Beck in Fond du Lac. After graduating from Lomira High School in 1974, he went on to be an extremely faithful employee of 40+ years at Fives – Giddings & Lewis, Inc. in Fond du Lac.

On June 15, 1996, he married Patsy (Tichonchik) Beck at Elo Methodist Church. They were overjoyed by the birth of their only child, Stephany Beck, on August 27, 1999. Over the summer, the family celebrated Stephany’s college graduation, Randy’s 65 birthday, and 25 years of marriage.

Randy, a quiet man by nature, was determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. He was a longtime member of the Utica Volunteer Fire Department, and member of Calvary Lutheran Church. He was often found tending to his lawn – fighting dandelions, riding the lawn mower, and harvesting leaves and hickory nuts. Additionally, Randy enjoyed watching MeTV and cheering on Wisconsin sports – especially the Green Bay Packers with Stephany. He loved sitting outside at the cottage spending time with Patsy and family.

Randy was also an avid Wisconsin foodie – a lover of cheese, hotdogs, ice cream, apples, and Blatz beer. He enjoyed monitoring the stock market, keeping up with politics, driving the Ram, family vacations, and Friday night fish frys.

Anyone who knew Randy knew that he was the most loving father and husband. He was extremely proud of his daughter.

Randy is lovingly survived by his wife, Patsy Beck; daughter, Stephany Beck; sisters, Nancy and Karen Beck; brother-in-law, Paul Tichonchik; sisterin- law, Kay Tichonchik; nephew, Tim Tichonchik; and niece, Anne (Luke) Linsmeyer.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Rueben and Eunice Beck; his mother and father-in-law, Mike and Billie Tichonchik; and brother-in-law, Jim Tichonchik.

A funeral service for Randy will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home, 100 Lake Pointe Drive, Oshkosh. Visitation will be at the funeral home on Wednesday from 3 p.m. until the time of service at 7 pm. A private burial is scheduled for the following day at Lake View Memorial Park.
