Guestbook for Becker, Anthony (Tony) P.

7:48AM Oct 3rd, 2017
Uncle Tony Becker will be remembered as the kindest, sweetest and smartest man I have known. He was a huge influence and role model for me. Soft spoken, but every word and thought he expressed was powerful and I listened intently. You are with Aunt Margaret now, where you both may rest in eternal peace and happiness. I love you!
