Bob was one of those people you never forget. Calvin and I both spent some great times with Bob. There were car shows, motorcycle rides and even a vacation cruise. Bob was always ready to go anywhere, just had to tell him the time and place. The thing we remember most was that we always had to stop for ice cream on the way back home from a ride, even if we had done lunch. He will be greatly missed by all.

As recent as one month ago, I spoke with Grandpa about how many motorcycles he owned throughout his lifetime. Without any hesitation, he proclaimed, "11!". He took me on a stroll through memory lane as he began to accurately rattle off each motorcycle's make, model and year followed by a short anecdote before moving on to the next one. He started back in the late 1940s all the way up until present day 2021. He had been riding for over 70 years and tallied up over 100,000 miles on the road. As I sit there stunned, I thought to myself, “…Wow, that’s incredible. He absolutely loves riding”. 

The entire time I couldn't look away from the massive smile on his face during this hour-long segment. It was quite infectious, there was no way around it…I couldn’t stop smiling.

For me, I’ll always think of how much peace and happiness that brought Grandpa to ride on his motorcycle. It’s a great reminder to never trade or give up the small things in life that make us happiest. Love you, Grandpa - thanks for sharing this with me.

  Bob had a most wonderful spirit about him! Not only was he was friendly and cordial to me when I moved here 8 years ago from NYC and made me feel like a true member of the family, but he was simply fun to be around and always up for any type of game or activity!
  The first Father's Day I was here, Bob, Gregg, Barb, Becky, Maxx, Jillian, myself and my girlfriend at the time, Karen, who is Gregg's sister and now my wife, took the Segway Tour of Downtown Cincy and it was a blast! I marveled at how well Bob did on the Segway and how great a shape he was in for his age, and thought to myself, "I hope when I'm that age I can have the courage to try a physical activity like this and pull it off as well as Bob did!" I say, "Bravo, Bob!" It was a testimony to a life well-lived!
  After the Segway Tour, we all went back to Gregg & Barb's house and celebrated Father's Day with a wonderful meal amid a festive atmosphere and I very much enjoyed being around Mr. Becker right from the start! Having no living family members of my own, it was heart-warming to me to be a part of such a loving and delightful family and the relationships have only gotten deeper and more loving over the years!
  So, I proclaim my infinite gratitude to all of you, and especially at this time to the patriarch of your wonderful family, Mr. Robert Becker! Karen & I and all of us will miss you very much and the Holidays will not be the same without you!
  Thank you, Bob for your service to our Blessed Nation and the friendship and love you bestowed upon me!
  May you rest in God's Peace and Love, unto Eternity!
