  • Our Management and Ownership

    Jim and his wife Nancy, and their children Anna and Amelia live in Woodway

    In 2006 Jim and Nancy Letson purchased Beck’s and Restlawn Memorial Park. With an extensive background in funeral home, cemetery, and crematory operations, they brought a commitment to helping Beck’s Funeral Home evolve to better serve the changing needs of our community. Their purchase preserved not only the values that have sustained Beck’s Funeral Home for over 60 years, but set the stage to introduce new and more personalized services under the name Beck’s Tribute Center.

    Our Pre-Planning Staff

Barr, Greg Carlson, or Julie Hartman. They are all licensed insurance agents who can assist you in sparing your family some of the burden of paying for funeral or cremation services.

    We are proud to be assisted by the following part-time staff members.
