June 6, 1941 – Feb. 22, 2018
Surrounded by his loving family, Michael A. Tucker “Mick” passed away on February 22, 2018. Mick was born in Helena, Montana to Jack and Marie Tucker on June 6, 1941. He graduated from Helena High School, attended Seattle University and Carroll College. Mick married his “Bride”, Joni, on May 21, 1971.
Over the years, Mick worked at Tucker and Clausen Distributing and was currently employed at the Sodexo School System. Mick enjoyed golfing, bowling, boating, and evenings dancing and dining with his bride, Joni. Mick thoroughly enjoyed attending the annual Lefty’s and Senior Golf Tournaments with his brothers, harassing his “older sister” Kathy and visiting his sister, Carol.
Later in life, he looked forward to spending time at Nickels with his brothers watching golf, baseball and afternoon naps with Puffer, his cat.
Mick is survived by his wife, Joni; sisters, Kathy Thompson and Carol Henderson; brothers, Tom and Rick Tucker; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and his beloved, Puffer. He was preceded in death by his father, mother and brother, John. Anyone who knew Mick also knew he treasured his family.
Joni would like to thank the people who stopped to administer first aid and drive her to the hospital. Your kindness will never be forgotten. Also, she would like to thank the wonderful staff at St. Peter’s Hospital.
