Ronald (Ron) Wade Tucker (78), Oklahoma City, passed from this life on March 26, 2022, surrounded by his loved ones.
Ron was born May 3, 1943, to C.R. and Minnie Rae Tucker in Sayre, OK. He graduated from Newcastle High School in 1961.
He married Revonia “Jolene” Cowan on October 29, 1965 at Lake Creek Baptist Church in Granite, OK. They had four children together, Ronda, Robert, Regina, and Robyn.
He joined the United States Air Force in January 1964 and was honorably discharged in January 1970. He graduated from Central State University in May 1971 with his Bachelor’s in Business. He worked in real estate and property management for 30+ years in the Edmond/Oklahoma City area.
Ron enjoyed f ishing, camping, gardening (known to his neighbors as the “vegetable man”), and spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren at the family farm. He never met a stranger, as he always had a story to tell, joke or funny comic to share, always had a smile on his face, and was beyond generous and kind. He loved big in his own way.
