A wonderful Uncle, a great friend and an amazing man, who will be greatly missed. He was also there when you needed him. One of my fondest memories was playing pool and he would cross the table trying to distract you with his dentures, always one to make you laugh and feel special.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Aunt Cecilia, Bradley, Jeffrey and the family in these difficult times.

Lots of love, Ginger & Ron

Our hearts are broken. Walter was a good man and friend. We always enjoyed each time he sat at our kitchen table for a visit. He enjoyed making other people laugh! Small in stature but "larger than life" personality!

I had the privilege of Walter and his family being our neighbours growing up as a kid. Two memories that stand out when I think of Walter is him saying his famous Fonzie, "Ayyy!" and playing soccer with his sons in their front yard with Walter playing in his steel toe boots!
Walter was exactly the type of neighbour everyone wanted, always willing to help, easy and to talk and kind-hearted.
You will be missed!
Prayers to the Becker Family,

We are very heart broken on over losing Walter Becker. He was a super big brother and brother in-law too us. We are very fortune to have shared time with Walter and his long time sweetheart of his life Cecelia. When we went south to Bradenton Florida for the winters, it was always a special time of sharing when we play games at night. Walter enjoyed any new game and adjusted quickly to the rules. One old game was always special to him and that was the game of euchre. He would very seldom turn it down on his turn at dealing and was very good at making his three tricks. Walter was always busy at doing something to help the cause and making new friends was always at the top of the list. Walter has a very wonderful wife and two son ‘s Brad & Jeff. We will always have a special spot in our hearts for them and always think of all our special memories we have had with them. With all our love and prayers Rodney and Kathryn. Love you Guy’s.

Turkey Point will not be the same without Walter. Always ready to help a neighbour and never sat still. Whether he was cleaning the beach or sweeping the road he always stopped to chat with everyone. He will be sadly missed.
