With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Brian K Tucker, our loving brother, uncle and friend. Brian passed away peacefully in his sleep on February 27, 2023. He was born in Seattle, WA on October 9, 1969, to Harley and Launa Gay Tucker. He grew up in Albuquerque, NM, and graduated from Highland High School in 1987, then attended the Phoenix Institute of Technology. He worked for Liebherr USA, and his job took him all over the country and the world.
Brian could fix anything and enjoyed the challenges of the complex projects he took on. He always found a way to make something work and loved bringing old vehicles back to life. He had a quick wit with an amazing sense of humor. He had a passion for finding/collecting super cool things from the past and loved the history that went with them. Brian had a goal of visiting all 50 states and finished the last one on 11/19/22.
Brian had a huge heart and gave freely to the ones he loved.
He was preceded in death by his parents Harley L and Launa Gay Tucker. He is survived by his sisters Nancy Caress and Cyndee (Jeff) Friend. Nephews Seth (Hannah) Caress, Cody (Mandi) Friend, Jake (Katie) Friend. Stepsons Levi (Megan) Swartz, Isaac Swartz, and companion Monalisa Henley. Many other family members and friends.
Brian was loved dearly, and the world is a lesser place without him.
