Ted was born on April 11, 1947, in Mobridge, South Dakota to Reverend Samuel Theodore and Mollie (Wonnenberg) Becker. He married MaryAnn Nuss at Gering Zion Church on June 25, 1977. MaryAnn brought with her a daughter named Suzanne, who Ted lovingly adopted. They welcomed two more children: son, Aaron, and daughter, Jennifer.
Ted was a graduate of WNCC and Chadron State College, receiving degrees in both Business and Accounting. He worked at many places throughout his life, but most notably, Panhandle COOP, Burlington Northern Railroad, Western Sugar, and Walmart where he finally retired.
Ted was a lifelong learner. He enjoyed reading in his spare time and always had a book by his side. He loved to hike the Scottsbluff Monument, Wildcat Hills, and surrounding areas. His kids and grandkids often accompanied him on these nature walks and enjoyed hearing stories of the history of the area. These memories will be cherished by all.
Ted is survived by wife, MaryAnn; son, Aaron Becker; daughters, Suzanne (Chad) Dunkel and Jennifer Minzey; granddaughter, Abigail; grandsons, Jadon and Brady Minzey; brother, Duane (Beverly) Becker; and nephews, Shawn (Karen) Becker and Tyson (Katherine) Becker.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Allen Becker.
The family would like to thank Regional West Hospice for their services.
