  • Robert Russell Becker

    Robert Russell Becker, 57, of Marietta passed away suddenly on December 8, 2022. He was born in Marietta to Robert Larry and Kay (Dotson) Becker on October 15, 1965.
    Bobby was a 1984 graduate of Marietta High School where he excelled in football, baseball and most importantly a friend to all. After high school he attended Ohio University and majored in business and had too many crazy stories to mention.
    Following college, Bobby went to work at Marietta Industrial Enterprises where he worked for 5 years before taking a position with Globe Metallurgical in Beverly in 1993.   He worked his way to the position of Head of Purchasing for all of North American Ferro Globe facilities.
    Bobby was an avid bourbon collector and enjoyed telling everyone about the rare bottles he managed to procure. He once won a chance to purchase a very rare and sought after bottle of 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle. The catch was that he had to fly to Boise, ID to get it. He was so excited to have this chance and made it happen.
    Bobby was a huge sports fan as well. He enjoyed watching football and baseball anytime he could catch a game in person or on TV. He was a loyal OSU fan …. “Go Bucks!” and loved the New York Yankees. His greatest love of all though, was his family.
