Members of George Becker’s family,
We were saddened to learn of George’s death. We had the privilege of knowing George over the past 25 years. We often visited at Jack’s Restaurant which was his local haunt. We all liked George and he had many interesting experiences to share with us. He was at a loss with the death of his dear, Phyllis, and often spoke highly of their lives together. He had a wonderful sense of humor and we all enjoyed him. He was a fine man and a loyal resident of Rapid River. Our prayers and sympathies are with all of you. Our presence will be in spirit and prayer due to the distance we are currently from Rapid River. Know of our best wishes and good thoughts your Dad. Sincerely,
Deacon Bill and Chetti Green
