Jose Becker had been declared missing on Wednesday at around 5pm local time after going swimming at a dam on his property near Rincao do Inferno, and his body was found several hours later following a search.
Jose Becker was a former amateur goalkeeper in the city of Rio Grande do Sul and is cited as having a strong influence on his sons – Alisson and Muriel – who both grew up to become professional goalkeepers.
After the news of Jose Becker’s death was reported, Brazilian team Internacional – where both Alisson, 28, and Muriel Becker, 34, began their careers – tweeted their condolences to the family.
“It is with great sadness that we received the news of the death of José Agostinho Becker, father of our former goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel,” the club tweeted in Portuguese.”
