In memory of
Edward A. "Eddie" Becker Jr.
Edward (Eddie) A. Becker, Jr. was called to Heaven on November 11, 2020. He was 41 years old. A lifelong resident of Kenner, he attended St. Lawrence the Martyr Catholic Grammar School and graduated from Archbishop Joseph H. Rummel High School in 1997. Eddie was a gifted athlete who excelled at baseball as a young man and was consistently recruited to play in both recreational and competitive softball and sand volleyball leagues over the years. But Eddie's true love was the outdoors. An avid hunter and master fisherman, he never turned down an opportunity to beat the dawn and hit the duck blinds at the start of the season in the coastal marshes near Venice, or to limit out on the speckled trout down the bayou in Delacroix. Many a transmission were close to burning up with fuel tanks on "E" towing boats over the Industrial Canal coming back with an ice chest full of big reds. Annual trips to the camp in Grand Isle as "Godfather" to "The Forum," a krewe of 40+ close friends, were legendary and grew bigger every year. Loved and respected by his coworkers, Eddie was a hard-working and faithful employee of the City of Kenner Department of Public Works for nearly two decades. He is survived by his wife Jessica Stafford Becker, son Justin, daughter Alexis (Lexie), his parents Edward A. Becker Sr. and Kathleen (Kathy) Heustis Becker, sister Melissa Becker Roussel (Tommy), brother Michael Becker (Emilie), niece Emily Roussel, and nephews Jacob and Todd Becker, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was the grandson of the late Jacob Edward Becker and Sylvia Rau Becker, and the late Clem S. Heustis Sr. and Emelda S. Heustis. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at L. A. Muhleisen & Son Funeral Home, 2607 Williams Boulevard with visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m. followed by a mass at 1:00 p.m. Internment in St. Patrick No. 1 Cemetery, 5000 Canal St. New Orleans LA 70119.
