Thomas F. Tucker passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday January 18, 2020. He was the husband of Irene (Rochefort) Tucker and the son of the late Earl and Lois (Almy) Tucker of Cranston.
Tom worked as an auto mechanic for 37 years at Dunne Ford and later, at Levine Manufacturing before he retired. A skilled drummer with a passion for oldies music, he was a master of doo-wop and an avid collector. When he wasn’t listening to music, he could be found outside in his backyard sharing peanuts with his many squirrel friends.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his two daughters Doreen Tucker and Lori Tucker St. Jean, grandsons, Robert (Jocelyn) Faraone, Eric Faraone (Bethany Ross), Michael (Amanda) Tucker and Thomas St. Jean. He is further survived by his great grandchildren, Logan, Lincoln, and Robert; and his three brothers Earl, Ed and Jim.
