Tommy Cluck, 75, passed away on July 30, 2018 in Bentonville, Arkansas. He was born on January 22, 1943 in Ft. Smith, Arkansas to the late Tom and Katherine M. (Phillips) Cluck. He was a loving husband of 58 years to Carolyn (Mulkin) Cluck. Tommy loved to spend time with his family and never knew a stranger. He was a mountain of a man, who always brought excitement to a function as he enjoyed pulling pranks and was quite the jokester. His favorite place to be was at the “Deer Woods” with his grandsons and closest friends. Sitting by the camp fire, listening to music, and riding the trails. He owned and operated Avoca Auto Sales now for more than 15 years. He owned and operated Tommy’s APCO and Wrecker Service in downtown Rogers for 15 plus years. He and Carolyn founded Cluck’s Fireworks Stand more than 47 years ago. He will be greatly missed by his family and all those who knew him. He was preceded in death by his parents; infant daughter, Sandra; and 6 siblings. Tommy is survived by his wife, Carolyn of Rogers; daughters, Cynthia Hatcher and Tommy of Rogers; Cathy Fellers and Chris of Rogers; and Cheryl Cluck and Gary Hawkinson of Rogers; 3 brothers, Jessie Cluck of Colorado, Orville Cluck of Texas and Doyle Cluck of Texas; one sister, Patricia Gauwain of Texas; 7 grandchildren, Kevin and Kyle Dixon, Thomas James (TJ) Cluck, Garrett and Caitlin McAfee, Trey and Jayke Cluck; and 6 great grandchildren, with 2 special arrivals to come later this year. Visitation will be on Thursday August 2, 2018 from 5-7 at Rollins Funeral Home Chapel. Funeral service will be on Friday 11:00 am in the Rollins Chapel with burial to follow at Ruddick Cemetery in Garfield, Arkansas. Online condolences can be made at
