Sherman Norbert Becker was born May 1,1967, in Breton, Alberta, to Ken Becker and Gail Waniandy. He grew up in Winfield, Alberta. As a child, he enjoyed sports such as hockey, fastball, and boxing. Sherman loved spending time in the outdoors, which included hunting and trapping. As a teenager, he liked motor cycling and got into motocross racing. After graduating high school, Sherman went to work in construction, and he became a crane operator. He worked on various jobs in Alberta and British Columbia with his dad, his sister Shelly, his Uncle Doug, and his Aunt Sheila. Sherman also spent some time working in the Northwest Territories.
Sherman was always respectful of people, and he was well liked by those he met. He displayed attributes of politeness, kindness, and gentleness, and these qualities stayed with him throughout his life. Sherman was close to his grandfather, Nubs Becker, with whom he spent a great deal of time with. Nubs was like a father to Sherman, as he looked after Sherman when Sherman’s dad was away at work. He loved his grandfather and helped him with various chores around the house and yard in Winfield, or he would just spend time visiting with him. Sherman was a fan of the Edmonton Oilers and remained a fan even when the Oilers were not doing so well.
Sherman maintained his love of dogs and wildlife through the years. He would often wear t-shirts and sweatshirts that featured animals like wolves and bears. Sherman seemed to have a great deal of respect for wild animals because they were free and like the wildlife he admired, he enjoyed his freedom to live as he chose.
Sadly, Sherman passed away at too young an age, but his soul and his spirit have been freed. He is survived by his parents and stepparents, Ken and Elaine Becker, Gail and Dan Daniels, his son Skyler, his sister Shelly, his nephew Brandon, his niece Shayla, as well as aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends. Sherman will be missed by many who knew him. He will be loved forever and will always be in our minds and hearts.
Sherman’s immediate family was able to have a service for him in Leduc, Alberta. Due to COVID-19, a service for extended family and friends will take place at a date to be determined.
