Michael F. Tucker Esq. Obituary
Michael F. Tucker, Esq.

AGE: 82 • Wilmington, De

Age 82, of Wilmington, DE, passed away at Christiana Hospital on Sunday, March 12, 2017.

Born in Wilmington, Michael was the son of the late Leo and Alice (Browning) Tucker. He attended Christ Our King elementary school and was a 1952 graduate of Salesianum School. After graduation, he served his country proudly in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. He then earned his Bachelor's degree from University of Delaware, and, thereafter, earned his J.D. from George Washington University Law School.

Michael practiced law in Delaware for many years, first at his office in the City of Wilmington and later at his office located on Maryland Ave. Following the loss of his wife Jean in 2002, Michael closed his private practice and served with the Public Defender's Office in Delaware from 2000 until his retirement in December of 2013. Michael also dedicated many years of his life and countless hours helping the many friends he met through Alcoholics Anonymous, an organization to which he was deeply and personally dedicated.

In addition to his parents, Michael was predeceased by his wife, Regina A. (Dobraniecki) Tucker in 2002 and his brother, John Richard Tucker. Michael will be dearly missed by his son and daughter-in-law, Shawn and Michele Tucker of Wilmington; his granddaughter, Madison A. Tucker; his sister, Joan Fedorkowicz of Annapolis, MD; many nieces and nephews; and many close friends.

A Funeral Service will be held at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 9th and DuPont Streets, Wilmington on Monday, March 20th at 12 noon where friends are invited to visitation after 10 AM. Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, and in keeping with Michael's wishes, the family suggests contributions to Alcoholics Anonymous, 21B Trolley Square, Wilmington, DE 19806. Online condolences may be made at
