Jeremiah Gene (Jeremy) Tucker, of Barrie, Ont. and formerly of Fort Frances, Ont., passed away suddenly as a result of an auto accident on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2000 in his 27th year.
Beloved husband and best friend of Carla (Gutta); dear son of Terrie and Ronald Tucker; dear son-in-law of Dina and Domenic Gutta; and dear grandson of Mary Record, Madeline Tucker, Don Smith, Maria Marques, and the late Ronald Tucker Sr.
Dear brother-in-law of Nelson and his wife, Ana; dear uncle of Marisa and Lucas; and nephew of many aunts and uncles.
We were fortunate to have Jeremy for 26 good years. Before his time came to move on, Jer chose his own path in life and shared that path with his wife and best friend, Carla. Together, they planned their lives, embracing every new experience with enthusiasm.
Jer loved spending time with his aunts, time at the cabin, his new home, and time with his friends. Jeremy was an affectionate and caring man who made sure his family shared his life and his love.
Jer, we love you and we’ll miss you.
