Steve Beckman – 1951-2014

It is with deep sadness that I must inform South of Zero readers of the passing of my husband Steve. On November 3rd he suffered a burst aneurism and passed away two days later. He was the happiest he’s ever been in his life and told me how grateful he was that we moved to Cuenca. He wanted to live in Ecuador for the rest of his life, I only wish that he had more time to enjoy it. His brother Dave and I will remain here and honor his memory. A Celebration of Life memorial is planned for Friday, November 28th, at the Museo de las Culturas Aborigenes. Those who wish to pay their respects can attend. The museum is located at Calle Larga 5-24, between Calles Hermano Miguel and Mariano Cueva.
