RON TUCKER, beloved Husband and Father passed away suddenly November 12, 2017 at the age of 77. Ron was born to Mary and Monty Tucker at Wells, B.C. on February 21, 1940.
When Ron was very young he had Perthes Disease and spent 2 years in the Queen Alexandra Solarium on Vancouver Island. When he returned home he had to use crutches and attended school in Salmon Arm, B.C. Then he went to Calgary Tech School. Ron worked for Parker Motors in Penticton and while Toots was working for Kenworth in Penticton they met and got married June 5, 1965. Our amazing and beautiful daughter Cheryl Lynn was born in the Penticton Hospital in 1967. Ron and his buddy, Jerry managed and operated a service station on Main Street in Penticton. We moved to Calgary and bought a 12 wide 52 foot Mobile Home. Ron worked for Atco Trailer Leasing and Sales in Calgary, Regina and then was sent to Vancouver with no place to park our Mobile Home. After 9 days we found a lot at Garibaldi Trailer Park in Maple Ridge that backed onto the Yennadon Elementary School Yard, where Chery attended school. We lived there for 15 years. We then built a house on 124 Avenue. Ron worked for Britco Trailer followed by Northern Trailer before his retirement.
Chery became a Barber and had a huge clientele. She married David Holt. Chery was diagnosed with a brain tumor and passed away January 28, 1999 at the age of 31 after 3 operations and radiation. All of this was totally devastating to us.
Ron touched a lot of lives in his journey. He was a gentle sweet, kind and caring man.
I am so grateful for all the family and friends who came into our lives and stayed in our lives.
My husband Ronald Tucker passed away on November 12, 2017.
I would like to thank the young Fireman who brought Ron home and who with his wife, got Ron to the hospital.
I would like to thank all the Paramedics, for all their help. Also, the Nurses, Firemen, Police, RCMP and everyone who helped him in any way. I’d also like to thank the Social Workers and all the caring people who gave us hope. It is nice to know we live in a community where we can find such caring people.
