Memory Eternal Frederick Beckmann......

This morning, family, friends and fellow parishioners of St. John’s gathered together to say good-bye to Frederick Beckmann, 87, who fell asleep in the Lord on January 9, 2020. He was the beloved husband of the late Anna Mae Lesko Beckmann. Frederick is survived by his loving daughter Linda and her husband Garry; and two sons, Daniel and Frederick John and his wife, Mary Ann. He leaves behind his grandchildren, Christina and her husband Adam, and Thomas and Francine. He is also survived by his sister, Marion Jacobs and many nieces and nephews.

 

Fred was devout in his faith to God and was a member of St. John’s where he was a Trustee for many years in the past. As a trustee, he assisted in many maintenance projects around the church and, as a master gardener he excelled in helping beautify the grounds of the church. Fred will be remembered for loving and appreciating God’s creations. He loved the outdoors and the creatures that bounded around his home in Cedar Grove and in the Poconos. His professional life consisted of graduating from New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering. He spent his life in engineering sales and retired from E.I. Associates as an Assistant Vice President of Sales.

 

“O God of spirits, and of all flesh, Who hast trampled down Death, and overthrown the Devil, and given life unto Thy world; Do Thou, the same Lord, give rest to the soul of Thy departed servant, Frederick, in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sorrow and sighing have fled away. Pardon every transgression which he hath committed, whether by word, or deed, or thought.” May his Memory be Eternal!

St. Gregory the Theologian -  By words of theology you unraveled the complex webs of the orators,  glorious Gregory,  and adorned the Church with the robe of Orthodoxy woven from on high.  Wearing it, she cries out with us, her children:  “Rejoice, O Father,...
