Obituary

George W. "Butch" Becker III, 76, of Muhlenberg Township was surrounded by his family when he passed away January 17th, 2021 in the Reading Hospital.

He was the beloved husband of Diane G. (Guistwite) Becker, with whom he celebrated 56 years of marriage.

Born in Reading, he was the son of the late George W. Becker Jr., and Pauline M. (Schoener) Ulle. Butch was predeceased by his sister, Judith Zintz and niece Christine Zintz.

He was a 1963 graduate of Reading High School.

Butch was drafted into the United States Army where he courageously and proudly served his country in the Vietnam War.

He was employed by UPS as a driver for 30 years before retiring in 2004. After retirement, Butch continued to work and was employed by the Governor Mifflin School District and Hiester Bowling Lanes as a custodian.

Butch was an avid bowler, bowling in many leagues and tournaments. He enjoyed sitting on the sun porch watching the birds from his recliner, spending time at the beach in North Wildwood, NJ and watching the sunsets at Sunset Beach, NJ. He enjoyed cruising around Reading in his 85’ Trans AM. Butch also enjoyed trips to Walt Disney World and taking casino bus trips.

If you knew Butch, you know that he was a constant jokester. What you might not know is that he was always giving back and doing things for others. He faithfully donated blood at keystone blood bank where he donated 45 gallons of blood. Butch would also deliver meals on wheels in his spare time.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his two children, Todd A., husband of Sabrina Becker, Blandon; and Heather L., wife of Shawn P. Moliatu, Fleetwood. He is also survived by three granddaughters, Morgan, Mackenzie, Alexia and step-granddaughter, Bella. He is also survived by his sister, Michelle, wife of Mitchell Milanek, Exeter and many nieces and nephews.

I will miss hearing Butch call me Kafoopy, his nickname for me since I was a young girl. Lots of fun memories. My heart is with you, Diane, Todd, Heather and Family.

So many fond memories. We stayed many times at George and Diane's Surf Song condo. Very generous person. Butch would always tell me to leave the cash in the freezer. Such a great sense of humor. We'll all miss him so much. Wish we could be there with you in person. Much love to your whole family. Thoughts and prayers from our house to yours.

I knew George for quite a few years through bowling. We bowled in the same league and many years we partnered up and bowled in several state and local senior tournaments. George was always a fun guy to be with and we had good times while bowling. Knowing how he always enjoyed the Jersey shore, the visits there won’t be quite the same anymore. My heart felt condolences go out to George’s wife and family. Enjoy the sunsets my friend. Jerry Hudack
