The following obituary of Robert Tucker was supplied by a friend of the Tucker Family of North Platte who is doing family research. Robert was a twin to Delbert Tucker and son of Alvie and Lucille Tucker, who lived in Haigler at one time.



Robert Lee Tucker, 54, of North Platte, died Sept. 15, 2003, at his home.
He was born May 12, 1949 in Wray, Colo. to Alvie and Lucille (Straub) Tucker. He attended grade school in Oshkosh and graduated from North Platte High School in 1970.

On Sept. 11, 1970, he married Marjorie I. Goff in North Platte. He was a diesel mechanic for the Union Pacific Railroad for over 17 years, retiring in 1985.

Mr. Tucker was a member of the Moose Lodge, active in softball and T-ball where he was a coach, a scout master, was the treasurer for Referrals Information Training Education and Support for families of children with emotional, behavioral, and mental health disorders, and was also a state representative for that organization. He was also on the advisory board for Respite and an honorary member of the Platte Valley Auto Club. He was also an avid out doors man who enjoyed hunting and fishing.

Survivors include his wife of North Platte; two daughters, Kami (Chuck) Snare of North Platte and Kerri (Keith) Skinner of Lincoln; a son Benjamin Lee (Andrea) Tucker of North Platte; three grandchildren, David Michael Dorsart, Jr., Terri Jo and Jorden Lee Snare; a twin brother, Delbert D. Tucker of Dillon, Mont.; special friend David M. Dorwart, Sr.; two sister-in-law, Vivian Goff of Paxton and Karen Speicher of Fort Morgan, Colo.; and a brother-in-law, LeRoy Goff of Sumner, Wash.

He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Donald Tucker and his father and mother-in-law, Carl and Marge Goff.

    I am Kerri Koch (Tucker) and Robert was my father. My parents were married in 1970, not 1979.

    I love this site. I loved seeing my father and my uncle's name in the "twins". It's been almost 5 years now since Daddy left and we all miss him so much everyday. He has two grandsons that he would have loved to have played with. My husband never got to meet him. Thank you for having this on here. It meant alot to stumble across it :)
