Stephen E. Becker Obituary
Stephen E. Becker, 61, of Clifton Twp., died Sunday evening at his home after a brief illness.

Born Nov. 7, 1952, in East Orange, N.J., son of the late Edward and Mary Connors Becker, Stephen was a graduate of Essex Catholic High School and attended Rutgers University.

Stephen made his career as a musician. He traveled around the world as the drummer for Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes.

He opened for such bands as the Rolling Stones, Journey, J. Geils Band and Led Zeppelin. In addition to headlining venues, making numerous television and radio appearances, he also owned his own recording studio that catered to the likes of major artists of the '70s and early '80s.

Stephen also had a professional career as a telecommunications engineer for Bell Atlantic and Comcast.

Surviving are his son, Stephen N. Becker, Clifton Twp.; brother, Harold Becker, Riegelsville, Pa.; niece, Kimberly Becker-Miller; great-nieces, Jordan and Avery; and many cousins.

Graveside services and interment will be conducted today at 1 p.m. in St. Catherine's Cemetery, 1247 Drinker Turnpike, Covington Twp., with the Rev. Robert Simon as officiating clergy.
