James Henry Tucker, affectionately known as “Fir” and “Stiffie”, departed this life at his residence in Blackstone, VA on December 17, 2022. He was born to the late Roy Nathaniel Tucker and Bessie Fannie Claiborne Tucker. He was married to Mary Elizabeth Tucker, who preceded him in death, for 70 years. James was one of seven brothers and a sister and was also preceded in death by Roy “Shorty” Tucker, Tom Tucker (Aretha), Clifton “Head” Tucker (Doris), Willie Tucker, Sr, Lewis Tucker, Sr (Grace) and Harold Claiborne (cousin/brother).

His professional journey included serving as a Master Sargeant in the United States Army and as a “Master” Mechanic with Hammock and Rand for several years until he retired.
James was always available to anyone to lend a helping hand, a word of advice, a listening ear or just a good laugh. He and “Baba” had many, many children to come to them for many years and they loved them all. His legacy will live on and his memories will be forever cherished by his brother; Cloyd “Pecker” Tucker (Inez) and sister; Shirley Hardy (Robert); a sister in law; Mae Tucker and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
