Bernie was born on November 1st, 1942 in Covington to John (Fritz) Beck and Helen Maloney Beck . A firstborn grandson on both sides of the family, he was a “big” deal despite the fact that he was vertically challenged. He was a proud Covington Catholic Colonel, and he graduated from Villa Madonna College (now Thomas More University), and Salmon P. Chase College of Law. Bernie served in the US Navy from 1961-1967 on the USS Independence. At the tender age of 32, he married Ann Litmer, one of his luckiest days. He practiced law on his own and in various firms. Bernie died unexpectedly on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Edgewood, KY. He was predeceased by his parents. Bernie is survived by his wife, Ann, sons, John (Linda), Jeff (Judy), and Tom (Amanda). He also leaves his sister, Judy Walker, and his beloved grandchildren: Alex, Sadie, Emmie, and Lucia. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, services will be private. Bernie was most proud of his 10 plus years of sobriety and happily mentored other members of the AA fellowship.
