Mrs. Tucker and Family
I used to work for Dr. Tucker is Abilene, while my husband was stationed there in the mid 90's.
I am saddened to hear of your loss. He was such an amazing presence and an accomplished individual. I have thought of him and your family often over the years. I count it as a blessing that I was able to know him briefly.

Diana & I just got back into the country and were shocked & saddened to read of Jim's passing. I have always had a great deal of respect and admiration for him. After all, he brought me to Abilene to be part of the physician community and the community in general. I could never thank him enough. He was also a great mentor to me in the early years of my practice with advice and assistance. I felt privileged to consider him a friend and colleague. Diana & I want you to know that you all are in out thoughts and prayers.

Sending sympathy at Jim's loss. We lived on the same street in Abilene and Suanne, our
daughter, was one of his first patients when you moved to Abilene in '64. Suanne and I, Evelyn Spires, send out sympathy. What a wonderful family you have!
The Montgomery Bridge Club lost one of its best with the passing of Jim Tucker. An expert player and formidable opponent, he exhibited the best that competitive bridge has to offer. We'll miss him and fondly remember as he usually asked with one table to go: "How are you doing? Do we need to crank up our game?" The answer was seldom: "Yes." Jim was always at the top of his game.
My heart and prayers are with you all. Uncle Jim was always laughing and always making us laugh.

Dr. Tucker was one of the pleasant people at the Montgomery Bridge Club. He will be missed.
To the family of Dr. Tucker I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Tucker was a good man and always made me feel so special. He was my eye doctor my whole life. In 1969 at the age of 9 months old he performed my first of three eye surgeries and continued to treat me up until his retirement. When I would go for my yearly eye check ups Dr. Tucker would sometimes let me wait in his office instead of the waiting room. I loved looking at all the USAF stuff and would talk his ear off asking questions. He was so good to me. Dr. Tucker will be missed. The family will be in my prayers. God bless.
Jim was one of those people you meet that are "bigger than life". He was a friend for life, and will be sorely missed by a wide circle of people that he touched.
