A silly repeat of Fred Bauer’s Shazzam pose – from memory. I posed and Jean took it when we were headed for Bellingham in 2005 either to take shots for the book “Washington Then and Now” or to lecture – or both. By then Larry Beck was long gone both from his bank and from this moral coil. Larry – Lawrence – died in the spring of 1994, and his passing was noted with a great wake at Golden Gardens. Part Alaskan native his ashed were distributed in Puget Sound – delivered by a very long and large dugout canoe moved by many paddles. Larry “left his mark” with a piece of permanent art at Golden Gardens, 12 feet of steel and named Atala Kivlicktwok Okitun Dukik, “The Golden Money Moon.” (Look it up.)
