Birth: Jun. 18, 1891
Medina County
Ohio, USA
Death: Apr. 1, 1967
Pueblo County
Colorado, USA

The body of Earl Henry Becher, 75, who apparently died several days ago of natural causes, was found Monday in the doorway of his cabin, 7 miles west of Rye.

Becher, a prospector who had lived in Pueblo County for 30 years, was found by a friend, John Kear of Rye. Kear said he had been checking regularly on the elderly man who had not been feeling well. Becher lived alone.

Deputy Coroner Verlyn Peterson said that Becher, who was last seen alive on March 30, apparently suffered a heart attack. No autopsy is planned.

Becher served with the Marine Corps during World War I and was a member of the American Legion Post at Rye. Survivors include two sisters, Mrs. Kathy Medill of Rye and Mrs. Bertha Vandruff of La Jara, and two brothers, Marvin Becher of Rye and Hiram Becher of Apache Junction, Ariz.
