Garland Scott Tucker , Jr.
The term gentle-man best describes Garland. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Wilson in 1967 and immediately knew he was a man of integrity and deep faith. He knew how to stand firm on principles without demeaning or judging others and the good works he did lives long past his life on this place. He truly ran the good race and made this world a better place. We will all miss his presence but will have a strong example to follow.
Sarah and Macon, my deepest sympathy to you and your families on the loss of your father. My parents try to keep me informed on news of my classmates and it was with regret that I learned this news. My thoughts are with you and other of our classmates that have lost their parents.
Uncle Garland,you have always been so very special to me. I will always be able to hear your kind voice and see that crooked grin and twinkle.
”And Jesus said to him,”Assuredly, I
say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
My love and thoughts are with all that will miss you.
Our deepest sympathy to the Tucker Family.
Barry and Barbara Carroll
I met Mr. Tucker while working with The Salvation Army. He was always kind and encouraging. I worked with him on the Raleigh and Wilson boards. He was supportive of my professional growth and always on-top of my moves and plans. 15 years later I serve as the VP of a non-profit and count Mr. Tucker as one of my early champions. God's blessings on your family and his legacy of caring.
