Becker, Nils “Folke” III (4 MAY 1957 - 27 MAY 2013)

Nils “Folke” Becker III, 56, Edgar, died Monday, May 27, 2013, at home under the care of Ministry Home Care Hospice and his family.

Folke was born May 4, 1957, to the late Nils Folke and Jean (Boos) Becker Jr. in Minneapolis, Minn. He married Cheryl Andreske on October 1, 2011, in Wausau.

Folke was a 1975 graduate of D.C. Everest High School. He worked for NAPA Auto Parts, for several local farmers with their ginseng, and lastly at Menzner Lumber in Marathon, where he retired early due to his illness.

Folke loved riding his motorcycle, especially when taking trips with his wife, Cheryl. One of his favorite trips was to New Orleans. They fished together and he really enjoyed Cheryl’s cooking.

He also enjoyed downhill skiing, heavy metal and rock n’ roll music. He especially loved spending time with his family, friends and playing cars with grandson, Lucas.

Survivors include his wife, Cheryl; his daughter, Breanna Olig, Wausau; step-daughter, Becki (Josh) Blaubach, Wausau; step-son, Jason Rhyner, Wausau; two grandsons, Lucas and Ryan; and a brother, William (Marie) Becker.

Memorial services were held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 1, 2013, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 725 County U, in the town of Rib Falls. Rev. Terry Reich presided. Visitation was from 9:30 a.m. until the time of services at the church.

The Brainard Funeral Home, Wausau, assisted the family with the arrangements.

The family would like to thank Ministry Home Care Hospice and nurse Bonnie, for their wonderful care and kindness during Folke’s illness.
