  1. CandleImageTom Tucker is one of the most calmest, coolest, compassionate and caring men i have ever had the privilege of knowing. I am proud to call him my Uncle and he will always have a special place in my heart the way he did my entire life especially when i was a kid . The things that stick out in my mind is his Truck datsun i think ? his perfect lawn and just the entire yard front and back always so perfect! BBQs , my Auntie Carols Zucchini rice with cheese or baked Macaroni! and Lemon iced Tea listening to George Straight on the living room stereo the steep stairs to the basement with diamond sparkle in the ceiling. i had a great child hood and My Uncle Tom was definitely one of the reasons why ..

  2. Tom and I were best friends. We rode to school together every day in high school, we played football together, and worked at Safeway together. I am sorry we lost touch as we grew older.

    Tom was a good guy. I am sorry for your loss.
