RAYMOND ROBERT TUCKER

Raymond Robert Tucker, 72, of Fort Frances, Ontario passed away peacefully at the Thunder Bay Regional Hospital in Thunder Bay, Ont. on Sunday Nov. 25, 2007.
Raymond was born on Nov. 21, 1935 in Fort Frances to the late George and Jane Tucker. He lived in Fort Frances all of his life. On March 9, 1957 he was united in marriage to Carol Miller and they recently celebrated their 50th anniversary with family and friends.
He spent his life working as a logger, trapper, and running his own business as a commercial fisherman. Rainy Lake was home for Raymond. If he wasn’t commercial fishing or trapping, he was hunting with his family, or taking them out to pick berries. His favourite pastime in his later years was to watch “The Wheel of Fortune” or “Friends,” or to take a drive south of the border to Fortune Bay or Hinckley.
He also took pride in his home in town, spending time puttering in his new garage and making sure his yard was well-maintained.
He will be greatly missed by his wife Carol; children Blaine (Janice), Tim (Cathy), Ray Jr. and Julie (Rick); 12 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; sisters Elsie Taylor and Loretta (Karl) Lipinski and sister-in-law Lillian Tucker as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He will also be missed by his four-legged friend, Misty.
Ray was predeceased by his parents George and Jane; and brothers George, Gib, Horace and Ron.
A visitation will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2007 from 7-9 p.m. with parish prayers at 7:30 pm. at Green Funeral Home in Fort Frances.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday Nov. 29, 2007 at 10:30 a.m. at Green Funeral Home with Rev. Georgina Connor officiating.
Luncheon is to follow at the Métis Hall.
Cremation will take place following the service at the Rainy River Crematory in International Falls, Mn.
The honourary pallbearers will be his children Blaine, Tim, Ray Jr. and Julie; his grandchildren; and friends Leonard Noonan and Don Easton.
