Coyt F. Beck (86) of Mobile, Alabama passed away peacefully on Sunday May 14, 2017 with his family by his side. Mr. Beck was an Air Force Veteran of the Korean War, Fuel Farm Manager at the United States Coast Guard base, and avid golfer. He was beloved by his family and took great pride in the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren.
Mr. Beck was predeceased by his wife of forty-eight years, Charlotte Lewis Beck. He is survived by his son Charles Beck, daughter Robin Beck Leffard, son-in-law Gregory Leffard and three granddaughters: Megan, Ashley and Bayley Leffard. The family will receive relatives and friends from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. on Friday May 19, 2017 at Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home in Mobile, Alabama. Graveside Services will immediately follow at 12 p.m. in Mobile Memorial Gardens. The family invites loved ones to celebrate Mr. Beck's life at Ralph and Kacoo's at 1595 Battleship Parkway from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. following the service. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in his honor to The American Heart Association or the American Cancer Society.
While serving in the Coast Guard at Aviation Training Center, Mobile, I got to work with Mr. Beck during my twenty-one years at the base. He was johnny-on-the-spot with the fuel truck when an aircraft landed at the base. He was a hard worker and seem to be dedicated to his job. Haven't seem him since my retirement in 1989 but still remember him quite well! I can still picture him on the flight line! My condolences to the family. I'm sure he will be missed by many!

Robin and Charles, so sorry to learn of Coyt's passing. I know that you all have some wonderful memories of Coyt and Charlotte. They were two very proud grandparents. Sorry I can not make it to the service but your family has been in my prayers. Your mom and dad were great friends. I still miss Charlotte so much.
