As a young man of 18 he married Peggy Lewis and celebrated 64 years of marriage in May 2012. He worked with his father and uncles at the furniture factory in Marble Falls making various pieces of furniture. He also helped build Max Starke and Wirtz Dams and later the IBC Bank in Marble Falls.
In 1952 he moved his family to Corpus Christi and lived there for 20 years while pursuing a career in construction. He spent his leisure time fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway.
In 1973 he moved to Laredo and spent 19 years there continuing in construction building of banks, schools, homes and other various structures. While living here, his fishing slowed down and his love of hunting took over and his trophy deer prove this. Bob taught his sons the love of fishing and hunting and his daughter the love of fishing.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Joe Becker and sister Wilma Tatum.
Survivors include his wife, Peggy Becker; brother Kelly Becker and wife Jackie of Montrose, Colo.; sons: Dan Becker and wife Sheila of Corpus Christi, Jerry Becker and wife Paulette of Hitchcock and Steve Becker and wife Veronica of Laredo; daughter, Barbara Newcomb of San Antonio; 11 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild.
