Terry Dean Becker was born November 16th, 1946, to David Becker and Virginia (Lagge) Becker in Beulah, ND.
The best day of his life, and the worst day for his loved ones, was August 11th, 2023, when in the comfort of his home and surrounded by his family, Terry was welcomed into heaven to be with his Lord and Savior. He bravely fought cancer for 10 months. He is now free from pain and enjoying being in the presence of God.
Terry was a devoted husband, loving father, and faithful friend. He loved to visit with friends and family and was known for his hard-working ethics and his willingness to always help someone in need. As quoted by a neighbor, “Terry could fix anything”.
He loved a good hard day of work, whether it be in his chosen occupation as an electrical contractor or as a farmer/rancher on his Pine Hills property. He took pride in whatever he did. His family was the light of his life, and he looked forward to time spent with them. He loved a good game of cards, and early on, his grandchildren learned to hide their cards or “Papa might peek”. Restoring antique farm equipment, camping, and yard/garden work were a few of his favorite pastimes.
Terry is survived by his wife of 58 years, Wilma (Beebe) Becker, their son Thad Becker of Sheridan, WY and their daughter Kristen Becker of Helena, MT; four grandchildren, Andrew Battin of Helena, MT, Amanda Battin of Helena, MT, Warren (Wynona) Becker of Sheridan, WY and Julie White Hawk of Sheridan, Wy; 4 great grandchildren, Serene, Ivyn, Rhilynn, and Lakiya, all of Sheridan WY. He also leaves a sister, Peggy Utsler of Havre, MT, a brother Robin Becker of Great Falls, MT, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, David and Virginia Becker, a sister Harriet, and brothers Donald and Stephen.
Because Terry was a kind and humble man and disliked being the center of attention, his wishes were to have only a short, informal, Celebration of Life. This celebration will include a time of food, fun, and fellowship at Grace Bible Church on September 7th, at 11:00 a.m. Please come prepared to share your favorite memories of Terry.
