BECKER, William John June 16, 1928 - November 11, 2017 After a courageous battle with ALS, C/Supt William J. (Bill) Becker ret'd, passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the Maplewood Residence on November 11, 2017. He was in his 90th year. A loving and devoted husband to Mabel (predeceased), the best father anyone could ask for to his son Scott (Denyse), a loving and doting grandfather to Kimberley (Sebastian) and Jonathan, and a loving and supportive brother to Ileen (Grant) and Dolly (predeceased). Bill was a dedicated and proud RCMP officer with an illustrious 36 year career, and was instrumental in the creation of the RCMP National Memorial Cemetery at Beechwood. He will be remembered for his strength and courage, as a leader, role model, an officer and a gentleman with an infectious smile whose generous and compassionate nature brought joy to his family and friends alike. The family would like to thank Dr. Farey and the nursing and care staff at the Maplewood Residence, Lia Eichele and the RCMP Veterans Association, Barb MacDonald (OT), Veterans Affairs Canada, and the ALS Society for their excellent support and care for Bill over the course of his illness. Friends and Family are invited to visit at Beechwood, Cemetery and Funeral Services, 280 Beechwood Avenue, Ottawa, from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, November 19, and from 11:30 a.m. on Monday, November 20, until time of Funeral Service in the Sacred Space at 1 o'clock. Attending veterans are encouraged to wear blazers with large medals. In lieu of flowers a donation to the ALS Society would be appreciated.
