Craig Anderson Tucker

April 4, 1934 — April 7, 2024

Nashville

Craig Anderson Tucker, known affectionately as "Poppi”. His journey came to a peaceful close on April 7, 2024, in Fairview, TN. 

Preceded in death by his son Ronnie Tucker, daughter Lavon Box and sister Cynthia Mosher. 

Survivors include his wife June Tucker, son James Atherton; son in law Larry Box; grandchildren Jeanna (Doug) Turner, Mandy (Aaron) Lane, Anna (Jason) Alexander, Craig Tucker, Bridgett (Jason) Bohanan, Zack (Mariah) Sway; great grandchildren Chelsea, Katie, Hayden, Lexi, J.P., Nathan, Gavin, Kaelyn, Madison, Emma; brother Winston (Martha) Tucker; fur babies Ace and Biscuit as well as numerous friends and church family. 

Born on April 4, 1934, in Nashville, TN, Poppi was a man of many virtues. Described as quiet, caring, a deep thinker, and humble by those who knew him best, he touched the lives of many with his kindness and wisdom.

He was a dedicated owner and operator alongside his brother Winston Tucker at Tucker Service Center for over 31 years, leaving behind a legacy of hard work and commitment.

Craig's love for his faith was evident through his devotion to his Lord and his bible. As a faithful member of Cornerstone Nashville since 1997, he found solace in his spiritual community. In his leisure time, he enjoyed fishing and the excitement of watching NASCAR races.
 However, above all else, Poppi held his family closest to his heart. His love for his family knew no bounds; he adored his wife of 36 years, June Tucker. Their bond was a testament to enduring love and partnership that inspired all who knew them.
 
 In addition to June's loving presence in his life, Poppi leaves behind a legacy through his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The impact of his kindness and wisdom will continue to resonate through the generations that follow in his footsteps.
 
 Visitation will be held on Tuesday, April 16, 2024 from 3:00pm ~ 7:00pm at Harpeth Hills Funeral Home on 9090 Highway 100 Nashville TN 37221 and at Cornerstone Nashville on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 from 10:30am ~ 12:30pm with a Celebration of Life at 12:30pm. A graveside service will take place at Harpeth Hills Memory Garden at 2:30pm following the service.
 
 As we bid farewell to Craig “Poppi” Tucker in this earthly realm, let us carry forward the lessons he imparted through his actions: kindness, humility, and an unwavering dedication to those he held dear. May his soul find eternal peace in the embrace of heavenly grace.
