Giants owner Peter Magowan also attended the services at a Scottsdale mortuary.
Beck was found dead in his northeast Phoenix home Saturday. He was 38.
Police don't suspect foul play and the medical examiner is awaiting results of toxicology tests to establish a cause of death.
Beck, a three-time All-Star, was a closer for 13 major league seasons.
Nicknamed ``Shooter'' and well-known for his fondness of country music, cowboy boots and cigarettes, Beck pitched for the Giants, Chicago Cubs, and the Boston Red Sox before finishing his career with the San Diego Padres in 2004.
Beck is survived by his wife, Stacey, and two daughters.
