In memoriam: JB Becker

JB Becker
Today my brother-in-law, JB Becker, passed away. He had been fighting a long battle with cancer. His melanoma was first discovered in 1998, but doctors were able to perform surgery to remove the cancer. The cancer metastasized in 2007, and JB put up a valiant fight.

He was only 35 years old, but he packed a lot of life into those 35 years. In addition to living in Minneapolis, JB also lived in the Netherlands and Philadelphia. He loved playing soccer, gardening, acting, and talking about politics and religion. JB directed a play that was part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival one year called "Will the Real Superman Please Stand Up?" I auditioned for the play, but didn't get the part.

JB even let me beat him at tennis a couple of times.

He is missed. So long, JB. We love you.
