Prayers and condolences to the family of Percy Tucker Jr.

I first met Percy in the summer/fall of 2000 while working in the Produce dept @ The WiseWay Supercenter off 61st and Broadway (now Strack & Van Til). Percy was always a joy to talk to (especially after finding out we knew some of the same people) and learn from at work. After leaving WiseWay, I would go on to work at Majestic Star Casinos & Hotel which is where his wife worked (or may still be working at).

Percy will be dearly missed by those who knew and worked with him.

To the family,

Percy is at peace. Think of the good times and smile. For comfort read Ecclesiastes 3:1-15,17,19,20,22. Percy and I used to have some good conversations back in the day. May The Creator bring you peace during this time.
