Paul V. Becker
December 19, 1917-June 6, 2013

   Paul V. Becker, 95, of Manteca, CA passed away peacefully on Thursday June 6, 2013.
   Born December 19, 1917, he joins his loving wife of 63 years, whom he missed dearly since her passing on February 8, 2013.  Paul and Ruth were married in Idaho, but soon made their home in California where they raised their six children.  They were both members of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, where Paul was active in St. Vincent de Paul, and joyfully attended mass every day that he could.  He made many friends through the church organizations, and especially loved attending Ada Van Ryn’s prayer group.
   Both Paul and Ruth were World War II Veterans, Paul served in the Army earning two Purple Hearts, and Ruth served her country in the Marine Corps.
   He is survived by his loving children, Paula (Bill) DeGroot, Mark (Patricia) Becker, Patti (Marty) Hartt, Kathie (Jim) Browning, Carolyn (Rudy) Morel and David (Lori) Becker.  He was extremely proud of all of his 16 grandchildren and 12 great- grandchildren.
   Family and friends are invited to the funeral mass, Friday, June 21st, 10:30 am at St. Anthony’s Church.
   The final resting place for both Paul and Ruth will be at the San JoaquinValley National Cemetery in Santa Nella, where once again, they will be side by side.
