Mr. Marvin Becker

June 3, 1932 — October 1, 2018

Mr. Marvin Becker, 86 of Navasota, passed away Monday, October 1st at Baylor Scott and White Hospital in College Station. A celebration of his life will be held at 10:00 am Saturday, October 6th at Salem Lutheran Church in White Hall, Texas with interment to follow in the church cemetery. Rev. Chris Richardson will officiate. Arrangements are under the direction of Nobles Funeral Chapel.

Marvin was born in White Hall on June 3, 1932 to Reinhard and Minnie (Hille) Becker. He proudly served the country he loved in the U. S. Army and was a Korean War veteran. He married Carolyn Shiflet on January 18, 1969 in White Hall. He worked as a foreman at Trinity Industries in Navasota for 37 years, until his retirement in 1997. Marvin enjoyed being outdoors, raising his cattle and road trips; he and Carolyn travelled to Colorado in their travel trailer several times. An avid classic country music fan, he discovered Branson, Missouri in the 1990’s and the couple travelled there several times a year, though it was his home in the country and his cattle that he always returned home to; his devoted canine companion, Susie always at his side.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Carolyn Becker of White Hall; daughter and son-in-law Vickie and J. Bittle of San Diego, CA; son and daughter-in-law Ronald and Kathy Becker of New Waverly; grandchildren Austin and Steward Bittle and Megan Powell; great-grandchildren Titus and Cora Powell and his beloved dog, Susie.

Serving as pallbearers are Robert Norsworthy, Hoyt Wichman, William Gorner, Woodie Land, Johnny Ray Abke, Hector Valadez and Gerald Shiflet.

Mr. Becker was preceded in death by his parents; brother Alfred Becker; sister Loraine Molitor and grandson, Ben Becker.
