Larry V. Tucker, 75, died Friday, February 25, 2022 suddenly at his home. The oldest child of Vernon and June (McNamara) Tucker, Larry was born in Lincoln, Maine, moving to Franklin, NH with his family as a child. He attended Franklin High School and joined the Army at an early age, serving in the 25th division in Vietnam from 1964-1966. After Vietnam, he was stationed at Fort Monmouth, NJ and remained in the Army until 1974. Larry remained in NJ with his family where he became a plant manager and did coating for his company for many years. He later became the purchasing director and continued work in this field after his retirement. He and his wife moved to South Carolina in retirement to be closer to family.
Larry is predeceased by his sisters, Annette Tucker, Bonita Tucker and Melody Tucker and a brother, David Tucker. He is also predeceased by his son-in-law, Mark Eichelberger just a brief time ago.
Larry married the love of his life, Alberta (MacDuffie) Tucker in 1966 and they shared more than 55 years together enjoying life and adventuring together. They shared a love most only dream of in this life. They spent many great times vacationing and discovering new places with family and friends. Larry always had the time for a family member or friend in need. He made it a point in this life to make sure everyone he loved knew that he loved and valued them. He had a love for fast boats, the water, good food, good times and enjoying the life he was given. He could often be found playing a round of golf with friends, a game of pool or darts and making friends. He is a well-loved man by the many family members and friends in his life. This is because of the loving uncle, cousin, brother, father, husband, and friend he was to all in his life. We all have countless stories of the laughs, joy, tears, adventures and mischief we shared with him and we will forever carry those treasured memories with us. He believed fully in living your best life and enjoying every moment of the time we have. We will continue to do just that in his memory.
Along with his wife, he leaves behind the light of his life, his daughter Cristina Tucker of Irmo, South Carolina; his brother, Ernie Tucker of Franklin, NH; brother-in-law, William MacDuffie, and his wife, Sharon of Salisbury, NH; his niece, Lyn Tripp and her husband, Roy of Franklin, NH; nephews, Aaron Tucker and his wife, Erika of Centennial Colorado, William MacDuffie II of Salisbury NH, and David MacDuffie of Salisbury, NH and many great nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
