Carl Beckstedt Obituary

Beloved husband of 60 years to the late Joyce Traylor Beckstedt. He was a tirelessly devoted father to his children Dan (Maria) Beckstedt, Dianna Erickson, Timothy Beckstedt and Bihl (Terry Bowdell) Beckstedt; adored grandfather of 12 grandchildren Jennifer Erickson, Marie (Tommy) Davenport, Kelly (Allen) Rowe, Kimberly (Antonio Magana) Beckstedt, Kelsey Beckstedt, Katie (Kevin) Murray, Matthew Erickson, Evan (Erin) Beckstedt, TJ Beckstedt, Carl Beckstedt, David Beckstedt and Emma Beckstedt; and 8 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Carl and Florence Janning Beckstedt and his seven siblings.

Carl served in the United States Army as a Staff Sergeant during the Korean War, stationed in Germany. He obtained degrees in Accounting and Economics from Xavier University. In 1960, he was hired by John Shillito, original co-founder of Federated Department Stores (now Macy’s Inc), and had a long, prosperous career retiring in 1989. In his spare time, Carl could be found coaching his children’s sports, bowling with his Norwood buddies, or on a golf course as, aside from his family, golf was a life passion. He proudly both bowled a perfect 700 game and obtained a hole-in-one in golf. He was a devoted Catholic and volunteer and Deacon at both St Dominic and St Vincent de Paul churches.

In life, Carl was a kind, calm, loving man. Carl always gave what he could and put others before his own needs as a caretaker as a son, a brother, a father, a friend. He lived. He loved. He golfed.

Carl passed away Saturday, March 2, 2024 at age 94. Memorials may be made to Tunnel to Towers Foundation or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
