December 6, 1936 - January 6, 2022
Robert James Becker (“Bob”) passed on from this life on January 6, 2022, having succumbed to natural causes after enduring a 4-month health struggle. Born December 6, 1936, in Peoria, IL, he was the only son of Joseph J Becker and Catherine A Filzen Becker, and brother to Joanne P Becker Hill. Robert moved to Florida in 1970, and in 1974 married his sweetheart Vivian Lee Hane. Robert was preceded in death by his parents, sister, and beloved wife of 37 years, Vivie. He is survived by one cherished son, Robert J Becker II (Shannon), and 5 step-children, who he loved as his own: Pamela (Clay) Stephens, Stephanie (Robert) Ouellette, Steven (Julie) Scherer, Karen (Michael) Beard, Joan (Robert) Richards; 8 grandchildren: Christy (Dale) Baringer, Amy (Nathanael) White, Loren Beard, Brandon Beard, Robert “Casey” (Amber) Richards III, Shawnee Richards, Ed Parker, Elizabeth Salter; 19 great grandchildren; 6 great-great grandchildren; 2 sisters-in-law and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. A veteran of the US Army, Robert is perhaps best remembered for his steadfast faith and loving heart, but is also well known for his many years in the men’s clothing retail industry and as a casualty insurance marketing rep. Services to celebrate Robert’s life are scheduled for 9:30am on Saturday, January 29, 2022, at Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 121 E Duval St, Jacksonville, FL. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to honor Robert’s memory to Community Hospice of NE Florida or your favorite Catholic charity.
