Anthony Becker (Dad, Grandpa, Beck, Tony) was a true compass for our entire family for generations.
He is most remembered as kind, generous, brilliant and the life of the party. He gave us a life full of love and laughs - the kind that make your sides hurt.
His value system of work hard, play hard instilled growth through education, perseverance and passion. These values have empowered us to be the best we can be and our challenge now is to honor him by taking those values forward and sharing them with all we meet.
We accept this challenge and will continue to build upon the legacy he so proudly created.
