Mike Becker of Summerland, BC passed away peacefully on August 25, 2014 at the age of 72 years. Remembered and sadly missed by his loving wife Patt, son Chris (Shona) and their children Jacob and Brendan, daughter Denise and her children Kaiden, Talena and Tamara, siblings Bev (Mel) of Kelowna, Darell, mother-in-law Dolly Gowing, brother-in-law Terry (Linda) Gowing and sister-in-law Carol Bigam. Mike was sadly predeceased by his parents George and Kay, sister Margaret and brother Rick.
Mike’s work life was mostly in the mobile home industry, starting with General Coach in 1968 and ending with Moduline in 1993. His work life ended when he suffered a brain aneurysm at age 51. Since then he was in care facilities: Dr. Andrew ECU, then many happy years at Villeneuve House and ending at Summerland Seniors Village. Mike was an avid outdoorsman, happiest when fishing – either for salmon around Vancouver Island or just enjoying the seclusion of the backwoods lakes nearer home. He had built a big camper for the family and most weekends were spent out in the hills. The other happiest memories were the driving trips to Reno with Patt. Thank you to all his caregivers, special hugs to Randy Villeneuve for his years of care. There will be no service. Condolences may be directed to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com
