DAVID DALE BECKER
JANUARY 27, 1974 – FEBRUARY 28, 2011
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved son David Dale Becker near Chase, B.C. on Monday, February 28, 2011 as the result of a tragic accident.
A celebration of David’s life was held at the Chase Community Hall on Saturday, March 5.
David was predeceased by his grandparents: Dot Becker and David and Mollie (Mary) Dalgarno. He is survived by his grandfather Clarence Becker, wife Cindy Kenoras, son Cyrus, step-son Ryan, parents Dale & Betty Becker, brother Dennis (Melissa), niece Alyssa, nephews Dyson and Brady; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
David and Cindy loved the outdoors; he loved hunting and fishing with his family and friends. David was an optimist and had a lifetime theme of seeking excitement through taking risks and living life on the edge. He loved his guns, his fishing rods, his snowmobiles, quads, bikes, boats, etc. The greatest loves in his life were Cindy Ryan and Cyrus. David was a loving father, brother and son.
Dale and David had an even stronger relationship than that of father and son – they were best friends who worked together in the bush, and went on regular hunting and fishing trips together then spent untold hours discussing the adventures and mishaps encountered on each.
David and Dennis shared many hair raising adventures when they were growing up – a fact that caused Betty more than one sleepless night.
David was born in Kamloops and although he lived his entire life in the Shuswap region he was gifted with the ability to make friends wherever he went.
David worked for Mattey Bros. as a feller-buncher operator, however he excelled at operating any piece of equipment. Logging company representatives from as far away as Russia came to observe his work .
David’s passing has left an enormous sense of loss in the lives of all those who knew and loved him. He was an amazing young man who lived life to the fullest – in retrospect a gift to us all.
Thank you to everyone who assisted David in his hour of need.
