Is the newest member of Becker Family Funerals. Dan is a local Biripi man who joined us in March 2020 and is already an extremely valuable addition to our funeral home. Dan began his working life as a concreter at the age of 15 and became an accomplished concreter who has worked on many homes and buildings in the Manning Valley and surrounds. Dan has played football for Old Bar, Taree, Wingham and is an avid Rabbitohs supporter. Dan is married to our daughter Olivia and together they have three children, Talayah, Kyren and Mahlu. Dan’s priorities are his wife, family & work and he delivers in these areas without compromise. We are very proud of Dan in this respect. Dan’s parents are Clayton Thorpe & Coral Ridgeway and Dan is one of ten children. The Thorpe household was and is a very busy place. Dan’s decision to leave the concreting industry was made difficult because of the respect he had for his employer and also that he loved working with his dad on the job, but Dan realised the rewards that were to be gained for himself and his family by taking the new opportunity in his life. We embrace Dan and see the potential in him as a future role model within our wonderful...
