Edwin Monroe Tucker, a resident of Social Hill, AR for the past 56 years, passed away Wednesday, April 26th, 2023. He was born October 22nd, 1940. He grew up in Friendship, Arkansas and attended Ouachita School.
He spent many years in the boating industry before switching to construction. He helped build the first Wal-Mart in Malvern, CHI and National Park Hospitals - jobs from Little Rock, Arkansas to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee.
He was known as mayor to some of his friends and has been known to give some a bar of soap to encourage clean language. Once you meet him, you have a story to tell.
He is preceded in death by his parents Amos and Opal (Lewallen) Tucker, and brothers Ray and Manuel Tucker.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Ann (Pilcher) Tucker, his daughter, Sabrina Hathcock (Rick), 3 sons, Stephen Tucker (Sheila), Jay Tucker and Hunter Tucker (Heather). He is also survived by his grandchildren, Trevor Fleming, Cody Tucker, Andrew Tucker, Sabra Tucker, Kristin Nuño, April Lanier, Merissa Whitfield, Trista Tucker, Tori Rhea, Allisa Miller, Hannah Hathcock, and Chase Tucker, great-grandchildren, Kayden, Kennedy, Kylie, Karter, Yaretzi, Ulysis, Emilio, and Naomi, plus two on the way, his sister, Vonnie (Keith) Langley, sister-in-law Pat Tucker, and several nieces and nephews. There was a special bond between himself and his Dodge truck riding buddy and pet "A Boy Named Sioux."
He had a strong faith in his God, Jehovah, and a sure hope in a resurrection.
Service will be Saturday, May 6th, 2023 at 2:00 PM at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 140 Malvern Rd, Caddo Valley, Arkansas with Brother Bud Thornton officiating.
