Send Condolence

Dear Tucker Family: I am extremely sorry to see that Larry had passed. He was a wonderful man and a super boss. In 1973, Name Brand Furniture " was my first full time job and I was always welcomed at the Tucker house. I remember him: patience and kindness is what I remember most. I remember cleaning his glasses so he could read "that fine print". I remember being at your home and eating food in which I couldn't pronounce but love it just the same. He made me want to come to work everyday and learn as much as I could with the help of Al and Anne Swartz..and I can't forget SS and Irving. Good times with a wonderful man I called BUD! He will be missed by all. Love to the family at this tragic time.
