Joe Becker – My Dad

For years, I have been gathering information about my dad that I have been planning to compile in some way and share with my family. Sharing the resulting story with him was always a part of the plan, but since we never want to consider that we may lose our family, I have always found it hard to get started, even when my dad is in his nineties.

Because of my being a genealogist and family historian, and because of my fascination with technology and my always wanting to “kill two birds with one stone,” I have decided that blogging about my dad, while he is still able to read and understand what I’m writing, will be the best way for me to begin.

Being so close to him now, and being somewhat of a timid writer, I don’t know that I will be able to adequately articulate all that should be said about my dad, who is known to many people in the Tulsa area – especially the sailors. But I think that if I can at least get started I will be successful in some way, and my dad will be able to read and see the photos, which should bring back some happy memories.

He introduced lots of people to sailing, helping to match them to the right boat, and in many cases to the right sailing club or marina. He was well known to the sailing community, even after we closed the family sailboat dealership, Tulsa Sail-Craft, in 1998. Although he lost his “equilibrium” several years ago, limiting his ability to get around and forever tearing him away from sailing, my dad will always identify himself as a sailor. I hope he knows that his impact on the local sailing community will not soon be forgotten.

I took a sailing class from Joe in about 1986 or so. The lake session was on a Capri 25 at Windycrest. I really liked that boat!

I didn’t remember that, Joe. He only taught a few sailing lessons. I’m glad you were a student. And, the Capri 25 was a really cool boat!

It encourages and inspired all of us to seek the stories……..whether we just keep them in our heads/hearts or learn to blog…….I know for sure we need not be afraid to start sharing and asking them to share some of their fondest times and memories during their life! Enjoy the journey!!! LOVE the photo! Could be from a movie!!
