On Potter County Today we note the passing of Joe Becker. He was a terrific guy.
In case you'd like this photo I took last year, it shows Joe presenting a certificate of appreciation to Tina Franklin for her work with the Gold Star Mothers.
March 7 marked the fourth anniversary of her son's death in Iraq (Army Specialist Mike Franklin). Joe was very supportive of the Franklin family after Mike's passing.
Tina has served as a Gold Star Mother, consoling families of other war casualties and visiting the wounded at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
We'll miss Joe and he has left behind big shoes to fill.
Joe Becker's life was memorialized today in a service in Galeton, PA
