December 1, 1931 - October 16, 2016 Walter Roy Tucker passed away in his home in California October 16th at the age of 84, but his larger-than-life persona and trademark smile & wink will not be forgotten. Affectionately known as Papa by his family and many friends, Walt had a playful and irreverent outlook towards life, an attitude that he was fortunate enough to retain right up until the time of his death. Walter was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Evelyn Tucker, son Craig Tucker and his loving wife of 40 years Shelly, and is lovingly remembered by his son Curtis, his daughters, Cathy and Carin, grandsons Ryan, Andrew, and Noah, granddaughter Emily and extended family of Anh, Nicholas, Matthew, Mark and Justin. Walt was in the auction business, owned a machinery sales company and had a tour & travel business, but his favorite occupation was yelling at referees & umpires while cheering on his grandsons as they played ball. Walt was an extremely charitable man who left his mark on the world. The funeral service will be held Friday, October 21st, 10 am @ Mount Sinai Memorial Park. Interment to follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
