Brian John Beck Jr. passed away on May 19, 2019. In his 31 years of life, Brian John lived an amazing life of love, friendship, and service to others.
Born May 4, 1988, in Phoenix, Arizona, Brian was not only a third-generation Arizona native but also a third-generation Phoenix firefighter. Brian knew from the minute he could talk that he wanted to be a Phoenix firefighter; he never considered anything else. He was a member of Local 493.
He grew up in north Phoenix and attended Deer Valley High School, where he dominated the football field and took 4th in state as a heavyweight wrestler. Still, the most important thing he did there was meet the love of his life, his incredible wife, Sarah. Together their dreams came true when they welcomed their three beautiful children, Emery Olivia, Evie Sue, and Brian John Beck III.
Brian was quickly well liked by anyone who met him. He was known to always have a smile on his face and was kind to everyone he met. Brian was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed spending time hunting and fishing with his many friends and family. He could often be found working on projects for others and spending good times around the firepit at his family cabin in Happy Jack, Arizona.
His legacy will live on through his greatest blessings, his children, as well as the many people he inspired through his genuine goodhearted nature. Brian will be greatly missed but will never be forgotten.
