I am saddened to hear of Mitch’s passing. He was a wonderful man with a positive and buoyant personality. We were fellow chairs at CCSU, he of Special Education and me of Counselor Education. We traveled to Croatia together for a research project and published a couple of articles together. I heard that he was a pretty good racquet ball player. Having played quite a bit, I challenged him to a game. He showed up with a beautiful racquet and I knew I was in trouble when he said it was free because the company had sponsored him in some tournaments. I believe I may have scored only one or two points. Please accept my sincere condolences.

My sincere condolences to Mitch’s family. Having lost my spouse a year ago I know how surreal this can be. As a fellow LSCI Master Trainer, Mitch’s guidance was invaluable to me. Memories of many fun times at LSCI Conferences over the years.

So sad to lose him. His dedication to LSCI, and our students was amazing, along with his sense of humor. Just a stellar human being all the way around!

I am so sorry for your loss. I learned more from Dr. Beck and his stories about what “really” happens in the world of special education than I did in any book I read or class I took at MacMurray. He is the reason I got a second special ed. degree and have been teaching elementary learning disabilities since graduating from Mac in 1989. He was true trailblazer in the field of special education, a wonderful mentor, and a friend with a big heart of gold. He will be missed!? ??

I was able to get to know Mitch through our mutual work with LSCI. He was always insightful, kind and clearly committed to making the world a better place for young people. He will be missed greatly. My condolences to his family, friends and congregation.
