“I’ve run by that (park) so many times with Alyn and we talked about taking our kids there,” Nicole Beck said of newly christened Alyn Beck Memorial Park, near Fort Apache and Iron Mountain roads. “This means so much. Thank you.”

Alyn Beck, 41, was gunned down along with his partner, Igor Soldo, 31, while eating lunch at CiCi’s Pizza, by anti-government, anti-police zealots were found dead after a shootout with police at a nearby Wal-Mart.
