Jim’s Story

Site created on August 19, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.  Thank you for visiting.

My world changed one Wednesday morning on my way to work, My daughter tells the story in the first journal entry below.  We are in the middle of this journey and are very hopeful of its outcome. I cannot express how much I have appreciated all of the support, prayers, emails, texts, cards etc., I have gotten from family, friends and others. It provides me with the strength I need to push forward. I may not have been able to respond to each one individually so ---- Thank You so much. And thank you to the medical staff that has kept me alive with commitment and kindness and hopeful with trust.
Please pass this site on to others in your family as I probably don't have email addresses for most.

Journal entry by Niki Becker

It is with a heavy heart I write this. I wanted to let you all know that Dad passed away yesterday morning. 
He fought a long and hard battle and I couldn’t be more proud of him. But he was tired and ready. He went peacefully in his sleep as he wanted, knowing he is in a better place and there is no more pain is a comfort to us all. 

He was the most amazing man... husband, dad, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, son, uncle, friend. 
We will all miss him so very much. ❤️

Below is a link to his obituary on the funeral homes website, it will be printed in the star tribune tomorrow. 

Thank you you all for always sending him positive thoughts and prayers, I know he appreciated it very much.
