Kirby Bruce Becker

Kirby Becker passed away on July 22nd at his home in Royston, B.C. Born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan on October 5th, 1934.

Kirby was a character and a man of many careers over the years from RCMP to the proud proprietor of Kirby’s Kennels. Always tinkering away in one of his many sheds or working on a project in the yard. In recent years, with the help of his trusty riding lawnmower and customised trailer, he maintained his mobility and transitioned into a more supervisory and tool bearing role around the property. Of the many things that spring to mind about dad, these stand out, John Wayne, Johnny Cash, and John Deere. His gruff voice and cheeky sense of humour are dearly missed.

Survived by his wife, Violet of Royston, B.C., and children, Judson of Royston, B.C., and Dawn of Amsterdam, North Holland. His siblings, William and Merna of Calgary, A.B. His daughter-in-law, Natasha, and three grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life will be held on August 1st at 11:00am at Cumberland Recreation Institute 2665 Dunsmuir, Cumberland. Please join us in remembering Kirby.
