Dr. Norman Becker

Well Known Dentist

 

Dr. Norman Becker of Marblehead died at home surrounded by his loving family after a brief illness on February 23. He was 86 years old.

Known as “Tuny” to his friends, he was a kind, warm, selfless man whose quiet demeanor and joy in his profession and life inspired countless others to pursue their dreams. He was the definition of a role model. He always had a joke to tell and a quarter to magically find behind someone’s ear.

Norman Becker was born in Chelsea on May 11, 1924. He graduated from Chelsea High School in 1941 and from the Indiana School of Dentistry in 1946. While at Indiana, he played football under legendary coach “Bo” McMillin. An Army veteran of World War II, he also served in Japan during the Korean War.

Dr. Becker was in practice at the same locations in Revere and Boston until December of 2010 doing the work he loved for more than 60 years. When he retired, Dr. Becker was in practice with his son, grandson and a partner he considered a son.

Active in the Massachusetts Dental Society for decades, he served as a trustee on its board. He was editor of the Journal of the Massachusetts Dental Society for over 25 years. Under his watch, the Journal progressed from a small newsletter into the highly regarded publication it is today.

Dr. Becker received many awards for the Journal and he served as president of the American Association of Dental Editors. He was also involved with the Yankee Dental Congress, one of the largest dental conventions in the nation. In 2004, he was awarded the prestigious New England-wide Etherington Award for his contributions to his profession. In 2006, he was named the Distinguished Alumnus of the Year by his dental school. Dr. Becker was a fellow of the American College of Dentists, the International College of Dentists, the Academy of General Dentistry and the Pierre Fauchard Academy.

Perhaps what Dr. Becker is most known for professionally is his contributions to jazz with his then-partner, Dr. Anthony Minichiello.  These dentists were pioneers in the treatment of musicians, as they were experts in the relationship of a mouth to a musical instrument. For their contributions to jazz, Drs. Becker and Minichiello became the only non-musicians to be inducted into the International Press Club Jazz Hall of Fame. Dr. Becker once hosted a barbeque at his home in Marblehead for Louis Armstrong and his entire All-Star Band.

Dr. Becker was also a 56-year member of the Society of American Magicians  and he used his skills in magic to delight and calm his patients. He frequently lectured on the use of magic for patient management. In the 1960s, he was a regular guest on The Bozo the Clown Show where he taught children about dental hygiene while entertaining them.

He was the devoted husband of 63 years of Barbara (Ludwig); beloved father of Matia Angelou and her husband, David Osmond, David Becker and his wife, Jackie Belf-Becker, Susan and her husband, John Grant, Ellen Becker-Gray and her husband, Robert Gray, and Charles Becker. He was the brother of the late Etta Siegal and Rosalyn Sweet-Rappaport. He will be missed by his grandchildren, great grandchildren, friends, colleagues and patients.

Graveside services were held at Temple Sinai Cemetery, Danvers. Expressions of sympathy may be donated the Massachusetts Dental Society Foundation, 2 Willow St. #200, Southborough, MA. 01745. Arrangements were entrusted to Goldman Funeral Chapel, Malden. For online condolences go to: www.goldmanfc.com
