Rev Tucker and his wife were my customers both at Revco and later Kroger pharmacy. What a wonderful man! The motto for Ferrum College is Not Self, But Others. That exemplifies Rev. Tucker's life. Mrs. Tucker, since your husband's death, I've learned that my son Marc took care of your husband at Westminster Canterbury. He also speaks highly of a gentle soul. God Bless. Anne-Marie

Sorry to hear about the passing of Rev. Tucker. He was very special to me. Rev. Tucker gave me Sacrament of Holy Baptism in 1953. He would let me help him ring the bell in front of the church. He would come to the farm to check on my grandparent's (Anthony & Annie Croonenberghs). He was also the speaker at my mother's (Anne) memorial service in 2005

Dear Family of Beverly Tucker,
It hardly seems possible that your father and grandfather is no longer with us on earth. In the short time we knew him, we came to appreciate his kindness, warmth, sense of humor, concern for others, and faith. He was a patriarch in every good way, and we will miss seeing him and interacting with him when we visit you again.
Though we can't be there for the funeral, please know that our prayers and thoughts have been with you all and will continue (especially for Julia) as you move forward and grieve for your precious father and grandfather. He will be sorely missed.
Blessings and love,
Steve and Kathy Hooks
