Bobby Becker would hate that you’re reading about him right now.
The 26-year-old did not make a big deal out of having epilepsy, and while his friends could always count on him, he didn’t like to be the center of attention.
Bobby’s parents, Denise Fenton and Bobby Becker, acknowledge that, but they also know their son would want to help others, and they and their friends have organized a golf tournament in his memory to raise money for the Epilepsy Association of Western New York. The tournament and lunch will take place Oct. 7 at Brierwood Country Club, just over two months after Becker collapsed and died in his mother’s Hamburg home.
As a victim of epilepsy myself I suffered for many years with complex partial seizures ever few days. Finally I had a brain tumor removed and have been seizure free for over 18 years. I’m sorry this youth did not have that opportunity. I don’t golf but if they ever do another fund raiser for the EAOWNY I hope I can participate. That helped me too.
