Stanley Ray Becker, an outdoorsman and adventurer who served both his country and his community, passed away on Nov. 18, 2018 at home after an extended illness. He was 81.
Born on Oct. 29, 1937, Stan graduated from Jeromesville High School in 1955. Two years later, on March 16, 1957, he married Treva June Davis and together they would spend the next 61 years exploring the world.
A lifelong farmer, Stan plied the land and traveled with his wife and three children, Aaron, Cheryl and Brian. They criss-crossed the country in a blue and white Chevy van, marveling at the geysers in Yellowstone and dipping their toes into the Gulf of Mexico.
Stan was an avid fly fisherman and taught his love of animals to Cheryl, who would become a veterinarian. Aaron is a psychologist and Brian a physician.
Later in life, Stan and Treva would travel by train through the Copper Canyon in Mexico and along the Pacific Coast in British Columbia. They watched whales in Maine and spotted brown bears in Alaska. Then they flew to Australia and to New Zealand.
But for all of Stan and Treva’s adventures, none has been greater than the one provided by their five grandchildren, Amanda, Alex, Cruz, Meredith and Justine. Nothing made Pa-Pa happier than taking the grandkids for a tractor or four-wheeler ride around the family farm outside of Jeromesville.
He and Treva lived in the same home just south of town for 59 years.
Stan served in the National Guard before being honorably discharged. He was a longtime member of the Jeromesville Volunteer Fire Department.
In addition to his wife of 61 years, Stanley is survived by his children, Aaron (Melissa) Becker, of Jeromesville, Cheryl (Curt) Conrad, of Mansfield, and Brian (Johanna) Becker, of Naperville, Illinois, as well as his five grandchildren and a sister, Shirley Banks.
Stanley was preceded in death by his parents, F. Ray Becker and Frances Meeks, stepmother Carol Becker and brother John Becker.
Calling hours will be from 10 a.m. to noon Monday at the Jeromesville United Methodist Church, with services to follow. An interment ceremony will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Jeromesville Volunteer Fire Department.
Fickes Funeral Home in Jeromesville is honored to handle the arrangements for the family.
