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.

  • Christine Wiese : Words cannot express the sorrow in my heart for this posting. Even though I knew it was coming I was never ready for this news. Thank you for letting me care for him. It was an absolute pleasure. He was amazing. He was one of those people that brightened my day. He would come up even long after I discharge him from the hospital and say hi and give me a hug and was always so kind, and a gentle soul. he will be missed dearly. As we said our last goodbye, we left it at see you later. Big hugs to all of you. With tears and blotchy eyes after writing this, know you are thought of. He loved you all so much. Take care, Christine NP

  • Dan Becker : From the Memorial Mass for Jim: "God saw that you were getting tired And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you and He whispered, "Come with me." With tearful eyes we watched you suffer And saw you fade away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best." Rest in Peace, James Michael Becker, and may God welcome you into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain, but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever. We lift up his wife, Barb, daughters Nicole, Tasha and Shana, grandchildren Autumn, Aliyah, Jasmine, Layla and Saylor, great grandchild Harper, parents Clem and Imelda, siblings Mark, Marlin, Randy and Lynette, and all of Jim's other relatives and friends, May God gently wipe every tear from our eyes, make our faith strong, wrap His arms around us, and be with us, and through His Son, give us comfort in our sadness, courage and strength to live through this hour, and peace. Amen

  • John Hammett : I knew Jim through business. I met him through a project for Jim and his partners about 10 years ago. We have stayed in touch over the years since then. I came to know him as an honest man who cared for his employees and for his customers, for his family and for his business partners. Jim was thoughtful in his decisions and modest about his successes. He was smart and he was trustworthy. I enjoyed every interaction that we had. I will miss Jim, but I am thankful for having him as a friend while he was here.

  • Sue Johnson : ‘The most amazing man. . .’ Add to that list: Jim was the most amazing business partner. The ‘three legged stool’ of Airtech—Jim, Denny, and Bruce! These three men worked tirelessly to creat, implement, and run a successful HVAC company for over 25 years. They leave quite a legacy. We are saddened beyond words to learn of Jim’s passing. It was an honor to know and work with him. May God’s comfort and peace strengthen your family as you grieve the loss of this ‘amazing man’. With sympathy, love and respect, Bruce and Sue
