Donald "Don" L. Becker

January 13, 1936 - April 4, 2022

Donald “Don” L. Becker, age 86, of Frisco, Texas passed away on April 4, 2022. He was born on January 13, 1936 to Anna (Olson) and Walter Becker in Ilwaco, Washington. Don was raised on a farm in Luray, Kansas, where after a hard day’s work, he rode his beloved Indian motorcycle or drove his ’57 Chevy at dangerously high speeds. On May 24, 1959, Don married Lois Dean Ens in Wichita, Kansas. He worked as a machinist for Boeing and Texas Instruments. Don had a heart for carpentry and in his retirement volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Hope Park, and his church (Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco) where he used his skills to help those in need. 

Don is survived by his wife of 62 years, Lois Becker; his daughter, Coleen Roudebush (Dave); his four grandchildren: Amanda Richens (Charles); Zack Richert (Loretta); Stephen Roudebush, and Suzanne Roudebush; his three great-grandchildren: Oliver, Stephanie and Forest; and his two siblings: Carole Hall and Marilyn Whited. 

Don was preceded in death by his daughter, Stephanie Richert; and his parents, Walter and Anna Becker.

Don was our double cousin (dads were brothers & moms were sisters), so we grew up being together all the time…every Sunday and holidays. He was the only boy of the older ones so had to put up with all of us girls. We spent a lot of time with Don & Lois through our years of living in Liberal, KS, after moving a lot and also going to Texas to see our son & family! We’re so sorry he died so suddenly but thankful we’ll see him in Heaven! Love to Lois & family! Bill & Deanne Mills, April 19, 2022
