Arthur K. Becker


Arthur “Art” Kenneth Becker, 77, of Laramie, WY passed away Saturday, June 5, 2020, at Ivinson Memorial Hospital.

Art was born January 4, 1944 to Arthur and Dorothy Becker in Minneapolis, MN, where he grew up with his two sisters. On June 24, 1966, he married Carol Koontz in Minneapolis, MN.

He received his bachelor’s degree in business administration at University of Minnesota and worked in advertising, sales, and marketing. He lived the majority of his life in Minnesota, with his early years in Minneapolis and later moving to Brainerd to pursue his true passion, fishing…. He was an avid bass and walleye fisherman, but never turned down the opportunity to chase a northern or even a few sunfish. He was a true outdoorsman who also enjoyed hunting, snowmobiling and gardening. He moved to Laramie, WY last year to be closer to family.

Art was compassionate and gave back to his community in a number of ways. He was an active member of SERTOMA in Brainerd where he looked forward to hanging Christmas lights every December. He also volunteered at Camp Confidence for over twenty years, helping disabled children enjoy fishing. He guided fishing trips and was one of the fish cooks for the Camp Confidence fundraisers as well.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by his wife, Carol; sons Scott (Natalie) Becker of Broomfield CO and Steven (Marnie) Becker of Laramie; grandchildren Bryce, Libby, and Seth Becker; sisters Gretchen Louise (Don) Semler and Ruth Phoebe Becker; and niece and nephew Carolyn (Kai) Sakstrup and Aaron (Carri Stuhr) Pyles.
