Dear Erika, Stephen, Maggie, Jeffrey, Tobi, Kimberly, Adam, Margot and Tyler,
What a loss! We are not meant to be here forever and thankfully Bob lives on thru all of you!!!
To everyone Bob was a brilliant, handsome and humble family man. To me he was unforgettable since our first meeting! From the time my sister Maggie married into the wonderful Becker family, till the last order I worked on with him at Client's First, Bob Becker was always a gentleman. Bob never made me feel like I was placing his smallest order...no matter how tiny my business was he made me feel important. As a family member Bob arranged for me to get his parents car when I was going thru a tough time. He was so kind.
At family gatherings we talked about the 4 homeruns his Grandchildren are. How proud he was of each one of you! How blessed you all were to have such an involved Grandfather. I loved his words describing the first time he saw Erika. Love at first sight for sure!!!
My prayers to everyone. God got a very special guy in Heaven today.
Gerie (Maggie's sister)

Even though we only meet face to face a few times I always enjoyed our talks on the phone, you always made me feel like I was talking to an old friend instead of a client. You will always be my favorite customer/friend.
I will keep you and your family in my thoughts forever. Rest in peace.
