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.
