John (Johnny) Marvin Becklin passed away unexpectedly on December 22, 2007, at the age of 46 years, as a result of an automobile accident. John was born on June 17, 1961 to Bill and Darlene Becklin in Braham, Minnesota. He was baptized and confirmed at the Calvary Lutheran Church of Rush Point. He attended Braham schools and began his career in construction at an early age. On May 17, 1980 he married Cindy Johnson (Yund) and of this union a daughter Danielle was born. Throughout his life John was known as an extremely hard worker and wonderful friend.

Johnny was a generous man who loved to make people smile. He had a great circle of friends and his contagious laugh and outgoing personality made him loved by many. He enjoyed spending summer days on the lake with his girlfriend Lori and riding his Harley. Johnny loved being out with his friends “visiting” and relaxing. He was excited to become a grandpa and little Grace brought such joy to his life. Johnny’s faith in God grew stronger everyday and even though the Lord took him too soon, he will remain in our hearts forever.

    I feel so privileged to have met Johnnie. He was a truly wonderful man. So generous and kind. He would greet me with open arms and had a smile that would light up a room. He talked a million miles an hour so I missed a lot of what he said. I will miss going for bike and pontoon rides with he and Lori. They made a wonderful couple and were such fun to be with. I will never forget him, he will be so missed. My deepest sympathy to Lori and the Becklin family.

    Our sincerest sympathies to the family and friends of Johnny. It was always a pleasure to see Johnny and catch up with him, he always had time to shake your hand, say hello, and ask how everybody was doing in life. I worked more than a few hours along side Johnny through the years, enjoyed hanging out with him at various locations and get togethers over the years and thoroughly enjoyed my time with him, he will be missed greatly. He was always willing to help with any projects or just stop by to say hello; he was a gentle man with a gentle soul, always a very genuine personality.
    God Bless, the Giffrows.

    Was so saddened to hear of Johnnie’s passing when I called home and my dad (Dean Wilson) told me of the news. Even though it has been many years since I had seen Johnnie, I have fond memories of our youth spent together. I remember the time he spent the night at Grandpa George and Grandma Hattie’s Farm with me when we were 6. Or the times when we were young and I played over at his house jumping on the bed, playing with Lincoln Logs and running in the woods. Or trick-or-treating together with his brothers in Grandy. My prayers and thought go out to all of his family.
    Julie
