Obituary of Robert G. Becker

Robert G. Becker Jr., 71, of Stowe, PA, passed away on February 4, 2021, at Seasons Hospice – Phoenixville Hospital. He was the husband of the late Brenda J. (Pogue) Becker, who passed in 2015. 

Robert, known lovingly as Bob or Bo, was born on July 16, 1949, and raised in Media, PA. He was the son of the late Robert and Eileen (Smith) Becker.

Bob had a passion for building things: residential and commercial buildings such as Pulsations Night Club or the round Sheraton (now Radisson) building aside Rt. 422 in King of Prussia, vehicle bridges between islands in his beloved Florida Keys, a humble shed for his tools at his old home in Douglassville. He built friendships and was a rock and example of fortitude to many who needed guidance and fellowship and a new way of life. He built his own body back from the rubble of three organ transplants and gave his family the gift of three more decades with him. Bob was a tall, bending oak that, despite having weathered so many storms, stood steadfastly against the wind.

He is lovingly remembered by his daughter, Sarah Becker-Fralich, Stowe, PA; his son, John Becker, husband of Mandy Noll-Becker, Fleetwood, PA; his granddaughter, Kylie Fralich, Stowe, PA; and his precious dogs, Petey and Daisy. 

In addition to his wife and parents, Robert is predeceased by his sister, Patty Ann Morrison.
