 12/12/2017 - 01:43

Larry Tucker, age 76, of Saline, passed away after a brief illness on Sunday, December 10, 2017 surrounded by his family.

Born September 11, 1941, Larry was a devoted family man, always putting the needs and wants of his family before his own.

In 1963 he married his high school sweetheart, Bette (Feldkamp) Tucker, and over the next 54 years they built a wonderful life together.

Larry was a very hard working man and proud of the over 40 years he spent as a machine builder at Uniloy/Johnson Controls/Milacron. He will be remembered as a patient, kind, and loving husband, father and grandfather. We will miss his goofy smiles and sayings, his laid back demeanor, and his gentle heart.

His legacy lives on in those who love him.

Larry is survived by his loving wife Bette Tucker; beloved children, Stacey (Steve) Brown, Trisha (David) Raft, Kristi (Don) Lupi and special grandchildren, Brittney 23, Alyssa 21, Brandon 19, Jordan 17, Makenna 13, Adelyn 8, and Delaney 6. He is also survived by his brother Ron (Janet), sister Joanne (Jerry), brother-in-law Ray (Janet), brother-in-law Duane (Bev) and 8 nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Lawrence and June Tucker, and niece Tonya Tucker.
