Richard Joseph Becnel, 63, of Lutcher, LA passed away Monday, Jan. 7, 2013.

He was the son of the late Mrs. Rita W. Becnel and the late Joseph H. Becnel of Paulina.

He proudly served his country in the United States Army for twenty years, obtaining the rank of First Sergeant before his retirement in 1988. He worked for the State of Louisiana until his second retirement in 2013. His love for his country was only surpassed by his love of family. He was a hard worker who enjoyed life to the fullest and a great provider for his family. In his spare time he enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson, and spending time with his two grandsons.

He is survived by his wife, Masami Yamashiro Becnel; his son Chad Becnel; daughter in law, Annette Becnel; grandsons, Jason and Justin Becnel; siblings, Jerry Becnel, Joycelyn Becnel Accardo, Charlie Becnel, and Rose Becnel; brother in law, Dale Accardo; sister in law, Marion Becnel; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Paulina on Tuesday, Jan. 15, from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., followed by a funeral mass at 11 a.m. Interment will take place at a later date.
