Ted was born Teddy Wilbur Tucker on January 6th, 1945, to George “Nate” and Beulah Tucker and graduated from Bridgewater Fontanelle High School. One of Ted’s greatest accomplishments was recently celebrating his 55th wedding anniversary with his wife, Judy. He also enjoyed family, gardening, gospel and anything western-themed, some would say too much western! He lived a full life with many obstacles, but with his faith, anything was possible. Ted closely followed the scripture Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthened me.” Ted will be always remembered for his strong faith in the Lord, his generosity and his overwhelming love for his family.

He is survived by his wife, Judy Tucker; 2 daughters: Angela Tucker and Marcy (Jason) Ross; 3 granddaughters: Brianna Tucker, Nicole (Clayton) Bryan and Brittany (Devon) Vaughn; 1 grandson: Drake Ross; 3 great grandsons: Landon Vaughn, Layton Vaughn and Wyatt Bryan; two sisters: Dixie (Mike) Sorensen and Joyce Christensen and many special nieces and nephews.

Ted is preceded in death by his parents, Beulah and George and his grandparents, Dora and Walter.
