Roy Vincent Tucker, Jr.


Roy Vincent Tucker, Jr., age 93, passed away Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at Oakmont at Gordon Park, Bristol, Va.

Roy loved his Lord, his family and his country. He was a long-time member of Marion Baptist Church and could always be counted on. He and his wife, Joan were proud of their son, Mark and his wife, Diane. Roy enjoyed his family and watching their grandson Chase play sports - in fact, from Kindergarten to High School, they rarely missed a game. Roy proudly served in the Air Force during the Korean War and was a member of VFW Post #4667 and the Marion Lions Club. After serving, he and his cousin C.W. started Tucker's Food Distributors Inc. Through the years he was an owner / operator for Malone Freight Lines, Mason Dixon and Schneiders. Roy was convinced that the only truck was a Mack Truck. After retirement, you could usually find him loafing at Mutt's with "The Gang" telling stories. Roy joins a host of family and friends in his Heavenly Home and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 65 years, Joan S. Tucker; parents, Roy and Cleo Tucker; three sisters, Mary Heath, Helen Hayes and Dorothy Ernest.

Roy is survived by his son, Mark Tucker and wife, Diane of Marion, Va.; grandson, Chase Tucker; step-granddaughters, Tasha Wolfe and Haley Smith; six step-great-grandchildren, Lilli, Harper, Ava, Delaney, Olivia and Brenner.

The family will receive friends Saturday, March 26, 2022 from 5 until 7 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel. Funeral services will begin at 7 p.m. with the Reverend Dr. Charles Stuart officiating. Graveside services will be held Sunday, March 27, 2022 at 2 p.m. at Rose Lawn Cemetery with Military Rites conducted by the U.S. Air Force Funeral Honors Guard and VFW Post #4667.

Shortly after my Dad ,Mutt ,passed away. I went to the shop and Roy was there he liked the window seat, He was talking about his incident at the Cadillac dealership I believe in Bristol. It was pouring rain on this particular day ,I told Tucker that those weren't raindrops they were Mutts tears falling from heaven because he was laughing so hard.. My dad loved Roy. They were friends forever and I know it was hard on Roy when Mutt passed. But I know that they are all at the shop in heaven and laughing at each other..
The world will never see again the wonderful men that each of them were.
My heart is with you.
But I know there are alot of smiles in heaven. And Roy probably has his window seat there if Mutt has anything to do with it..
God Bless you all

I was do sorry to hear your dad passed away. I have always felt like your whole family was part of our family.Our parents were such good friends. I remember when you were real little you would sometimes come to our house when your mom went to work and curl up beside me and go back to sleep. My favorite thing about your dad was his laugh. I could listen to him laugh forever. It made me always laugh when he did. Both your mom and your dad were the sweetest and kindest people I knew. I loved to hear your mom laugh too. It always brought a smile to anyone who knew her. My deepest sympathy for you and your family. I pray that God will give you the strength to do all you need to do in the days ahead and know that you have that promise you will see them again. Love you and your sweet family. Linda Willis
