Member Spotlight

What do you appreciate most about Rotary?

I appreciate the friends I have made as a result of my membership. I still have very good friends that I keep in contact with from my old Rotary club which haven’t been a member of for 19 years.

If you could give just one reason for joining Rotary, what is it?

I was a young man in my early 30’s when I first joined Rotary.  I originally joined as a way of making business contacts in the community.  I soon found out however that the business relationships were only a very minor part of the benefits of membership.  As I became more involved in the club, I developed my leadership skills and improved my public speaking skills. The membership was always supportive and encouraging to me and gave me the confidence to grow and develop my skills. In addition the fellowship and mentoring I received from members helped me immeasurable in my business career.   Fellowship, service to the community are important to me and the fact that the club brings in quality speakers every week allows me to be informed about topics and issues I would not have direct knowledge of otherwise.  .

Tell us about one of your hobbies?

I am an avid golfer, always trying with minimal success to lower my handicap!  Although, I have had 2 holes in one at Robson Ranch this year! 

If you could have a conversation with someone living or dead, who would it be?

When I was a teenager I read a book by Irving Stone titled The Agony and the Ecstasy.  Its about Michelangelo, his life and times. He was a creative genius and I’ve always thought it would be fascinating to meet him.  The other person I would like to meet is Susan Sarandon,  I’ve had a crush on her since I first saw Bull Durham.  LOL 

Twenty years in the future, what do you think will be most memorable about your life now?  

I have 4 grandchildren, 2 of them were born in the last few months.  20 years from know they will be grown and I believe they will be very proud of all of them.

Assistant Chief David Becker began his career with the Denton Fire Department in April 1996. 

Prior to joining the fire department, he served as a Military Police Officer and received an Honorable Discharge after 8 years of service. 

His love of public service led him to a career in the fire service. He has proudly served over 21 years in Fire Operations. Chief Becker has worked in each fire district in the Denton, as he promoted through the ranks from Firefighter up to Captain. 

His experience in Fire Operations exposed him to the unique culture and diversity of Denton. 

In October 2017, he was promoted to EMS Chief, a position in which he served for almost 2 years, before his appointment to Fire Marshal/Assistant Chief over Support Services. 

His current mission is to provide a safe and healthy community for citizens, visitors, and for Denton Fire Department members as they serve to protect lives and property in our community.
