Don Tucker Obituary
DON TUCKER April 24, 1949 October 15, 2012 A Riverside native, Don has lived a life filled with variety, love and excitement. In his youth he paid for his high school education at Notre Dame by mowing yards at Queen of Angels where he also directed choir. He moved on from mowing church courtyards to joining the landscape crew at the Mission Inn. Passionate for landscape and design he pursued and retained a Landscape Architecture Degree from Cal Poly Pomona. He then joined the San Bernardino County Regional Parks Department in his early 20's and began to truly live his dream, planning themed events. All of life's puzzle pieces fell into place when he found and married his soul mate and with her support he became the creator and coordinator of some of the largest, longest running special events in the country. Don's life was always a festival waiting to happen and through his efforts as a leader in Southern California he has effectively impacted millions of lives across the country. Don is survived not only by his best friend and loving cheerleader of 36 years, his wife Barbara, but also his adoring children Brian and Breana (Bree). In addition, his brothers and sisters, Dale and wife Rhea, Dianne, Dave and wife Ruth, Loren, Lowell, Carol, Lynne and husband Ron Barile, and Joe (Terry) and wife Bev, as well as Barbara's sister Donna and her husband Paul Gillum, and two generations of nieces and nephews.
