OBITUARY

Kimberly Douglas Cecil Tucker

October 4, 1953June 14, 2020

It is with immense sadness we announce the passing of Kimberly Douglas Cecil Tucker on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at the age of 66 years.

Kim was predeceased by his parents Lillian and Keith Tucker. We are certain when Kim gets to where he is going his parents will have a cold Coca-Cola and lemon/pumpkin pie waiting for him. Kim is survived by his sister Judi Tucker (Ivan); niece Jamie Dark (Kerry); nephew Travis Ekelund (Valerie), great-nephew Desmond Dark; and brother-in-law Andrew Ekelund. Throughout his life Kim was fortunate to have many friends and caregivers that cherished and loved him.

Kim was born on October 4, 1953 in Edmonton Alberta. Growing up in Calgary and well into his adult life he was an active member of the community. Kim had a passion for all sports, music, his many dogs, great food and celebrations.

Kim’s passing has left a huge void in our lives, life is forever changed. His kind, clever, playful personality had a profound impact on all those who were fortunate to cross paths with him. His spirit would light up a room. He left a mark no matter where he went and truly touched so many lives. Kim loved the times where he could sit in front of a fireplace with a coke in hand, a whistle in the other while watching a sports game on TV and enjoying a good chat with a friend.

Strong, resilient and sometimes stubborn Kim was determined to fight to the very end. He was running a marathon and eventually his lungs decided it was time. We have comfort knowing he passed peacefully and can now rest.

Kim’s family is forever grateful to all the dedicated caregivers and advocates over the years that supported him throughout his life. Special thanks to Dr. Christopher Morse and Dr. Michael Hill for their continual support along with the compassionate team at the South Health Campus.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Kim’s name to Options Rehabilitation Services, https://optionsredayprogram.square.site in addition donations may be put towards a service dog – something that would be meaningful to Kim

Kim was one of my favourite clients to work with. Our favourite thing to was to go to the Brentwood Hockey arena during our lunch period and afterwards watch the scrimmages on the ice. Of course, Kim had to have his whistle with him. He was a favourite with the players also, because he always offered to hold the door for them as they got on the ice.

Judi and family,

My deepest sympathies for the loss of your brother, my cousin, Kim. The last time I saw him was at the Spruce Grove Vet clinic when he got a new dog. I remember the fun and laughs we had as kids when our families got together. My most vivid memory of Kim was his love for Tinker Bell and his plastic gun. And he loved Uncle Ken's truck.

Much love,
Kenda and family

I have many fond memories of Kim from the times our families spend together in Weyburn and Calgary . One of my favourites was the cat fights that Kim mischievously orchestrated between our family pets Fluffy and Tinker Bell. Kim would quietly open the basement door separating the two cats and sit back and wait for the fur to fly and the ensuing panic of Our moms trying to separate them. Never a dull moment with Kim.
Our condolences.
Barry and Berny
