It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our beloved partner and friend, James A. Becker, Jr.  Jim was 86.  He practiced law at Watkins & Eager from 1958 until his retirement in 2011.  Jim was an excellent trial lawyer and thoroughly enjoyed mentoring young lawyers.  He endeavored to live life to the fullest and loved his family and multitude of friends.  While we mourn Jim's death, we celebrate the way he lived life.
