Very sad to hear of Fr Jim's passing. I worked with him for many years at Joliet Catholic and married my wife and I in 1978. My prayers are with him.

I worked at MGH from 1987 to 1994. I didn't know Jim very well, but he was so friendly and funny, I liked him very much. I'm from Chicago, and my father was from Joliet, so we seemed to have a bit in common. We also had a friend in common - my parish priest at the time (St. James Parish in Charles Town, WV) was Fr. Bert Valdes. Apparently Jim and Fr. Valdes were in seminary training at the same time decades earlier. I thought that was an amazing coincidence. I was looking up Jim tonight to give him the sad news that Fr. Valdes died of cancer on February 18, 2011. But in locating Jim Becker online, I discovered the unhappy news that he himself had died almost exactly a year before Fr. Valdes did, another odd coincidence. May the angels lead you into paradise, Jim and Fr. Valdes. I have many fond memories of you both. Maura
