IN MEMORIAM: Patrick E. Beckles (1928-2017)

Community Board 3 mourns the loss of longtime Board Member Patrick E. Beckles

Patrick E. Beckles was born in Guyana, South America, moving to Barbados as a teenager, eventually settling in New York City where his parents had moved. Patrick worked as a civil engineer at the Department of Environmental Protection and retired from that agency. Having lived in the community for over 45 years, Patrick was very involved in civic and community activities. He was the president of the Ditmars Boulevard Block Association, volunteered as an auxiliary policeman with the rank of sergeant at the 115th precinct, and was a member of Community Planning Board 3, Queens as well as the East Elmhurst-Corona Civic Association, all in which he has held various positions.  Patrick was actively involved in the revitalization of the Flushing Bay and spent many hours working with the Army Corps of Engineers on the project.  In 1967, he co-founded The American Small Craft Association (TASCA), which continues to be a not for profit, 100% volunteer organization dedicated to the teaching of sailing and boating safety.

Patrick was predeceased by his wife of close to 60 years, Claudine and survived by their three children, Dianne, Nicola, and Pat.
