How Did We Do?

William "Bill" Gordon Becker, 63 of Winona, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, May 6, 2017. He was born on September 4, 1953 in Winona to Malcom and Patricia (Maynard) Becker. Bill graduated from Winona Senior High and attended Winona State University. On March 31, 1983, he married the love of his life, Laurie Kohner. Together they shared 34 wonderful years. In September of 1974, Bill started working for Fastenal and was the longest tenured employee, starting out as a part-time employee, and held many positions over the years. He was currently the Cost Savings Manager. Bill was not only a motivator in his professional life, but for everyone he touched. One of Bill's lifelong passions was weight lifting. He set many records across the United States and World. He was a member of the United States Power Lifting Association and the International Power Lifting Association. He loved outdoor grilling and his McDonald's Cokes, but most importantly he loved to attend his grandchildren's sporting events. Bill was extremely loyal to his family and friends. Bill is survived by his greatest love, Laurie; children; Ryan (Maria) Becker and Jenny (Kevin) Suber; grandchildren, Isaiah, Landon, Aria, Alivia, Ashlynn, Samaya, and Makai; his father, Malcom; brother, Rich Bearbecker; brother-in-law, Dan (Debbie) Kohner; mother-in-law, Jane Kohner; and many extended family and friends. He is preceded in death by his mother, Patricia; and father-in-law, Edward Kohner.
