Obituary for William Adolph Becker

WILLIAM A. BECKER of Bridgewater, VA, left his earthly home to be with the Lord on September 4, 2017, surrounded by his family, following a short struggle with cancer.

Born on July 2, 1933, in Kenosha, WI, to Adolph and Helen Becker, Bill left Kenosha High School early to join the Navy in 1950. He married his high school sweetheart, Mildred Behr, in 1952, earned his B.A. in business from the College of William and Mary in 1958 and enjoyed a successful career in the insurance industry before retiring in 1995.

Bill and Millie lived for over ten years in Williamsburg, VA, where Bill served as a president of First Night Williamsburg. In 2008, they relocated to Bridgewater, VA, where Bill pursued his longtime passions of classical music, photography, antique collecting, Bible study, and political action.

Bill is survived by his wife, Millie; son Verne and his wife Nancy; son Brad and his wife Katherine; son Greg and his wife Vicki; his grandchildren Brendan, Ben, Lucy, Kayla, Kyle, and Brady; and his sister, Patricia Jensen of Ruckersville.

Bill will be buried at Culpeper National Cemetery in a private ceremony. A memorial service will take place on Saturday, October 14 at 2 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 546 W Mosby Rd, Harrisonburg, VA 22801. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Missions Fund of either Covenant Presbyterian Church or Providence Baptist Church.
