Duane John Becker, the son of Ray and Louise (Berger) Becker, was born Jan. 27, 1943 in Algona. His childhood years were spent on the family farm near Wesley.

Duane moved to Dickens while working for the Dickens Elevator. He later worked construction and farmed, before working for Nolin Milling as a welder. He didn't take a lot of time off, as he always found work to be done, but when he did he enjoyed hunting and fishing.

Duane passed away Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2011, at the Spencer Hospita. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Lois Wingert.

Left to cherish his memory are his three children: Brett Becker of Fairbault, Minn., Brian (Lisa) Becker of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Beth Becker, of Spencer; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; other relatives; and many friends.

Warner Funeral Home of Spencer is in charge of arrangements.
