Becker, Leon C. "Lee"
Lee passed away on Saturday, May 31, 2008 at the age of 65 after a long battle with emphysema. Born on May 15, 1943 in Rochester, NY, he was a resident of the South Bay for more than thirty years. He is survived by his wife, Vicki, of Redondo Beach, sister Cathy, and brothers Dick (Elaine) and Brian (Marta), all of Rochester, NY. He was preceded in death by his father, Leon, his mother, Jean, and his daughter, Brandy.
Lee owned his own machine shop and had a lifelong career as a tool and die maker. After retiring, he became a boat broker and owner of Blue Pacific Yachts in Redondo Beach. An avid golfer in his early years, he will be remembered for his sense of humor, and love of boating. Often sighted on his scooter, Lee enjoyed visiting friends, shopping and fishing on the pier during his expeditions around town. He also traveled throughout the U.S. and enjoyed many cruises.
A celebration of his life will take place at noon on Tuesday, June 24 at the King Harbor Yacht Club with a reception to follow. Casual attire is requested. His ashes will be scattered at sea. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Lung Association. Please check back to view the Video Tribute.
