Obituary for GEORGE BECKER

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of George Becker, on July 24, 2023. Born in Parkdale in 1933 he was a long time employee of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company.  On July 5, 1958 he married the love of his life Mary and raised his family in Etobicoke.  Much loved father of Jill Tocher (Paul), Sue Connor (Andrew), Wendy, and Peter. Beloved Grandpa to Victoria, Rebecca, Meagan, Nicole (Simon), Paige, Danielle, Emily, Lucas and Evelyn and Great Grandpa to Colby. 

George had a good sense of humour, loved playing solitaire, cribbage, or a good game of SCAT. He loved Fall and Thanksgivings in Chesley, apple picking and roasting hot dogs and making S’mores around the fire pit.  He enjoyed the simple pleasures of life and spending time with his family.
