Paul James Tucker, 94, of Barnesville, Ohio, passed away Sunday, October 10, 2021. He was born in Bannock, Ohio November 7, 1926 to the late Hugh and Freda Gauth Tucker. Together with his parents, preceding Paul in death was his daughter, Karen Taylor; sons, James and Michael Tucker; four brothers; and three sisters.

A good and decent man devoted to his family; Paul made an impact on those he loved. Never asking too much of anyone, he led with faith and wisdom. He was never afraid to roll up his sleeves and put in a good day’s work and after many years of dedicated service, retired from Saginaw Mining Company. Two of his greatest pleasures was time spent on his riding mower and sitting on his front porch.

Paul’s presence, love, and kindness will forever be with those who survive; his wife of 72 years, June (Marmie) Tucker; daughters, Cindy (Roy) Friend, Judy (Charles) Campbell, Tina (Roger) Holskeybendel, Robyn (Todd) Duranty, Tammy (Tim) Sharp, Shawna (John) McIntire; son, Todd (Tina) Tucker; and many, many grandchildren, great – grandchildren, and great-great- grandchildren.
