Donald Lewis Tucker

March 3, 1942November 15, 2018

On November 15, 2018 the angels rejoiced as Donald Lewis Tucker Sr. joined our Lord in Heaven. Tears of loss fall from those of us left, but tears of rejoice in Heaven. He was born on March 3, 1942 in Dallas, Texas to Margaret Louise & Mike Mitchell Tucker. Donald was unique in this world. He was mostly found on his lawnmower. If he wasn’t home he was mowing. He liked making noise like starting a chainsaw or a weed eater in the middle of someone’s conversation. Over the years we have watched him grow in many ways. From a loner to a member from a prisoner of his heart to a praying, faithful Christian. He is preceded in death by his parents, Margaret & Mike Tucker; & sister, Debi Tucker. Donald is survived by his loving wife of 42 years, Mary Arline Johnston Tucker; children, Doni Tucker, Tanya Tucker, Sheri Ellen Tucker, Michail Leon Tucker, Christopher Pierce Tucker, Tammy Arline Land-Greene, John Wesley Tucker, & Vicky Diane Tucker Chapman; grandchildren, Kimberley, Shawn, Jennifer, Patrick, Shelby, Kristen, Amber, Chyeanne, Emily, Nikki, Arial, Rocky, Heather, Ashley Tessa DeNae, Bonnie ReNae, John Wesley Jr., Dusty Lee, Vince Isaac, Allison Paige, Randy Jacob, & Zach Mitchell to cherish his memory. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 2 p.m. at Faith Temple Baptist Church in Terrell, Texas with interment to immediately follow at Campground Cemetery in Poetry, Texas. The family will receive friends on Monday, November 19, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. at Anderson-Clayton Bros. Funeral Home in Terrell, Texas.

Arline, our family is so saddened by the loss of Don. We are praying for all of you, and want you to know we will miss him so. He was such a special friend. Don was the watchman of the neighborhood, and showed all of us what being a neighbor really is. When Jesus was asked what was the Greatest Commandment, He replied, " Love God with all your heart, and Love your neighbor as yourself." Don fulfilled that commandment, and because of him, I will try to be the best neighbor I can. I am sure when Don arrived at his heavenly home, he was welcomed with "Well done, My good and faithful servant". We loved Don, and I expect he will be one of the greeters when I arrive. Love to you and your family.-- Stella, Eddy, and the Prochaska family
