September 20, 1964 ~ May 7, 2022 (age 57)


William Carroll Tucker Jr was called home to the lord on May 7, 2022, while peacefully resting in his home he shared with his wife.

William was born in Hampton, Virginia on September 20, 1964, to Sheila and William Tucker Sr.  William attended high school in Hampton before moving to the Eastern Shore and settling on Chincoteague Island. William gave his life to the lord and joined the Union Baptist Church in 2007. There he would teach Sunday school, assist with outreach ministries, and serve in any way he could. From there, Will attended Dallas Seminary College where he completed their Seminary program, and thoroughly enjoyed continuing studies of the Bible and its many messages.  He began his love for wood working and construction while building cabinets as a young man in Hampton, and he would eventually go into business for himself. On April 22, 2021 Will would go on to marry Christine Tucker and they would continue to work together and lived on Chincoteague.

He was predeceased by his father Bill and his Grandmother Bessie Tucker but is survived by his mother Sheila Bloxom and her husband Eugene, his son Alex, his beloved Wife Chrissy, her daughters Alexis and Gena, and countless friends.
