Terry Tucker Obituary
Terry Clifton Tucker, 68, of Canon City, passed at home peacefully in his sleep to the hands of his Heavenly Father surrounded by his family on Jan 11, 2013. Terry was born in Canon City on Mar. 25, 1944 to Nadine G. (Diamond) & John A. Tucker, Sr. He grew up in Canon City & attended local schools. At 17 he joined the Navy & was stationed with his older brother John on the USS Ticonderoga where he proudly served as a Shipfitter 2nd Class for 4 years & was honorably discharged in 1965. Terry often said the Navy saved his life & taught him how to be a man. After the Navy Terry joined Local 20 Plumbers & Steamfitters Union as a pipefitter/welder & worked on various jobs throughout Colorado before obtaining his Master Plumber & Gasfitters license in 1991 & started his own plumbing business from which he retired in 2005 due to his declining health. Terry loved to hunt & fish & was most proud of the black bear he took by bow & arrow in 1984 & the bear is hanging on the living room wall to this day. His special friends Warner Davies & Bud Green were usually his companions on the hunting & fishing trips. He also loved Nascar, especially #14 Tony Stewart & the Denver Broncos...yay!!! He was a man of honor & integrity & always tried to do the right thing. He will be greatly missed by his family & friends. He married Janice Allen in 1965 and they had 2 sons, Terry Jr. & Kelly. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Jeanie, his 3 sons Terry Jr.(Geri) & Troy of Canon City, & Tracey (Lisa) of Colorado Springs, 4 grandsons, Tyler, Tate, Taylor & Tegan, his sister, Joanne Whitcomb of Canon City, & special friends Warner Davies, Bud Green, Leroy Painter & Chuck Purdy He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother John, his sister Colleen, son Kelly & his beloved Grandma Diamond. No services are planned at this time at Terry's request & his ashes will be scattered in Hawaii by the US Navy. All Veterans Cremation & Funerals handled the arrangements. Many thanks to Sangre De Cristo Hospice & his nurse Stacy, who helped him immeasurably, not with just his medical needs but his spiritual needs as well. We love & miss you already Terry but are thankful your suffering in this life is over...
