Tim Becker

Timothy Edmund Becker, son of Edmund and Ella Becker, was born April 10, 1946 in Aberdeen, SD. He left this life to join his parents as he passed away at Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, IA on April 9, 2014, the day before his 68th birthday.

Tim graduated from Clearfield High School in 1965 and served with the National Guard, doing an 18 month tour in Germany. Following his service time he did various jobs, but really enjoyed driving truck.

Tim lived a full, hard life - some by choice, some by challenge, but always with a smile. Several of his greatest moments and fondest memories were of time spent with his family and many friends.

Survivors include his son - Chris (Sarah) Becker of Ottumwa, his daughter - Julie (Andy) Johnson of Ankeny, former wife & mother of his children - Janet Becker of Hedrick, three beautiful grandchildren, Landon & Emma Becker and Jasper Johnson, and three sisters - Maxine (Paul) Whitmore of Stuart, Penny (JD) Blevins of Lillian, AL and Lori (Janae) Becker of Clearfield; also eight nieces and nephews, eight great-nieces and nephews, and many other friends and relatives.
A memorial fund has been established to the family to be decided later.

Tim was a good friend. He always spoke no matter where he saw you. I don''t remember seeing him without a smile. If you had problems he always had time you for you. Many, many friends will miss Tim.
