Marvin A. Becker, 68

Marvin “Marv” A. Becker, 68, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 23, 2013, at his residence. He was born on March 8, 1945, to Phillip and Dorothy Becker (nee Hassinger). Marv was passionate about snowmobiling, tractors, gardening, farming, fishing, hunting and being up north on his pontoon boat with a pitcher of old-fashioneds. He enjoyed traveling to Yellowstone Park and Alaska. He also enjoyed serving pancakes at the Allenton Car Show. Above all, Marv was very proud of his grandchildren.

He was a member of Allenton Lions Club, RATS (Restored Antique Tractors), Lily Sno-Birds Snowmobile Club, Tombstone Pickerel Snowmobile Club, the Oldsmobile Club of America Inc. and a proud member of Laborers Local 113. He loved working at Pabst Brewing Company for “31 years, three months and 12 days.” He also was happy working at Zuern Building Products. He currently worked part time “full time” at QuadGraphics in Hartford. Marv was a hard worker, “where you find work, you will find Marv.” Marv’s favorite saying was, “Anybody can do a bad job.” He is survived by his wife, Jane (nee Discher); children, Wendy (David) Reese, and Steven Becker; grandchildren, Morgan and Mason Becker, and Sarah Johnson; brothers, Allen (Anita) Becker and Dale Becker; and brothers-in-law, Larry (Cathy), Rick (Sandy) and Bud (Anne) Discher. He is further survived by cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends.
