Gordon Becker, 77

Gordon “Gordy” Becker, 77, of Kewaskum, found peace Thursday, March 17, 2016, at The Cottages at Cedar Run, West Bend.

He was born Oct. 11, 1938, in West Bend to the late Carl and Lilly (nee Donath) Becker. Growing up, he attended a one-room school in Cheeseville. He graduated from West Bend High School in 1956.

Gordy enjoyed deer and turkey hunting, playing sheepshead and gardening. But most of all he enjoyed conversations with family and friends — even with strangers — mischief, teasing and laughter with anyone. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Those Gordy leaves behind to cherish his memory include his three nieces, Bev (Jeff) Hansen of Kewaskum, Carol (Jim) Shallman of Lake Oswego, Oregon, and Donna (Troy) Scott of Pomona, Illinois, and other relatives and friends.

In addition to his parents, Gordy was preceded in death by his sister and brother-inlaw, Shirley and Don Ehnert, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A private family service will be held at a later date.

The family sends a special thank you to the staff at Cedar Community, especially The Cottages and Cedar Home Health and Hospice for all their compassionate care and support.

Memorials to Cedar Community, The Cottages, and Cedar Home Health and Hospice are appreciated by the family.

The Myrhum Patten Miller & Kietzer Funeral Homes have been entrusted with Gordy’s arrangements. Additional information and guest book may be found at
