William "Bill" Tucker Obituary
William "Bill" Tucker began his five-year stint in the National Football League in the late 1960s. Decades later, he's still remembered in his sport-oriented West Virginia hometown as a standout athlete and an accomplished artist.
After he was named a high school All-American, Tucker became his college's first football player to compete in the Senior Bowl. While he was a running back for the San Francisco 49ers, his pencil drawings and oil paintings were featured in Bay area art shows.
"He was very talented," said former neighbor and high school teammate Ted Tomasovich of Washougal, Wash. "He was a great guy and an all-around great athlete."
Tucker of Snellville died Nov. 26 of a heart attack at the age of 73. Read the news obituary
