Bobby Wayne Tucker

Bobby “Bob” Wayne Tucker, 74, of Leesburg, died very peacefully at home in the arms of his loving wife Debra Tucker. Bobby fought a hard fight with leukemia.


Born September 21, 1947 in Fayetteville, TN, he was preceded in death by his parents, Mary “Big Mama” Ellen Tucker Massey and Thomas “Red” Massey and his siblings, Clyde “Doug” Tucker, Barbara Ann Tucker Wiggins and Thomas “Ray” Massey.

Family left to cherish his wonderful memories are his wife of thirty-three years, Debra L. Tucker, their sons, MSG AJ Lawrence (Loren), Trey Lawrence (Laura), grandchildren, Braydon, Jaxon, Abigal and Treyson, Jr., sister Debra Massey Freeman and numerous nieces and nephews.

Bobby graduated from Albany High School and joined the Navy and was a Seaman Apprentice.

He was a very loving husband, father, brother, good friend and a father who was “Daddy” 24/7. Bobby always loved a good laugh and at time had a dry since of humor, he loved life and would help anyone. His greatest hobby and pastime was spent having a good dove shoot or out in the boat salt water fishing.

Bobby worked at Aultman Motors in the Sales Department before starting his own business “Dent Devil”

There are no service scheduled. His final request was to be cremated and placed on the mantel with “Old Blue”.

In lieu of flowers please make memorials to Phoebe Cancer Center or a charity of your choice.

The family would like to thank the many friends that stood by him in his time of need.

Good afternoon Debra, I too am very sorry for your loss. Bobby was truly a great friend to everyone that he met. My best memory of him was when I was coming back to Albany, after having been in Ocala working. I came up behind him coming through Doerun. Apparently he had been working in Moultrie that particular afternoon. Once I realized that it was him, I started to blow my horn. He made a motion for me to go around him. Finally, I called the number listed on the back of the truck, and he answered. I said, "hello Mr. Tucker", "this is Ms. Ross", could you please drive faster? We both got a good laugh, as he never expected me to come up behind him blowing my horn, and I never expected to run into him on that country road! He will truly be missed, but will Always Be Cherished In Our Hearts!!

My best memories of my Uncle Bob were him bringing me beautiful dolls from countries he had visited. My worst, when I was teasing an alligator and he sat me down on top of it. LOL. I am so thank full your transition was peaceful. Debra did such an amazing job taking care of you and her efforts are so appreciated. Thank you God for Bob having the opportunity to spend time with Treyson. All our prayers have been answered
