    We didnt have the same blood but to me you were the Big Brother that I never had. I am a only child so I am picky about who I give that title to. I am proud to say that I know what It feels like to have a Big Brother. Now I know how it feels to lose one. Im sure the rest of the people you touched feel the same way. Goodbye my brother until we meet again. Love you Big Bro

  5. Starr Garden says

    Herman “HT” Tucker was a great man that loved his family and friends. My heart and prayers go out to the Tucker’s Family. I truly stand on 2 Corinthians 5:6-8; “To be absent from the body is to be present with Lord.”
    You can shed tears that he is gone,
    or you can smile because he has lived.
    You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back,
    or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.
    Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him,
    or you can be full of the love you shared.
    You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
    or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
    You can remember him only that he is gone,
    or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
    You can cry and close your mind,
    be empty and turn your back.
    Or you can do what he’d want:
    smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”
    Everyone leaves footprints in your memory, but the ones that leave footprints in your heart are the ones you will truly remember.

    We didnt share the same blood but you were my brother. I am a only child so I am picky about who I would call that cause many will say it but you are the one that showed me. Now I know how it feels to lose one. Even though it will be hard to go back to a only child again, I will remember all the times. You were there for me. I will cherish all the memories and I will celebrate your life by never forgetting. Until we meet again Big Brother.

  7. Kiyiana says

    Uncle Hermie I love you so much and always will. I’ve missed you every day, since you’ve been gone from us. You leaving us, truly hurts, but I know that you’re rejoicing now that you are with God and God’s Angels! My heart hurts and there is a wide open space that has been left now. I know that God will comfort all of us in your absence. Until time starts to heal our hearts, our tears will continue on and I know you are watching us, and I can hear you saying, “Keep on loving one another and staying as tight as we’ve always been… that’s something no one can ever take away, no matter when any of us are gone.” I can hear your laugh and see that smile, you always had on your face. You were a proud uncle and loved me and every last one of your nieces and nephews dearly. You’ll always be my Uncle Hermie and I will always look up to the sky and smile at you, because I know you are smiling back. Until we see each other again… I love you!!!

    Your Kiki

  10. Sheryl Hall says

    You will truly be missed. We grew up in church together, was in the youth choir together and you would sometimes play the drums for the youth choir. I just saw you and your sons come into church the Sunday before you passed on. I was devastated when I heard the news. To think I will never see you walk through the church doors again. My thoughts and prayers goes out to your family, I pray that God can bring you comfort during this time of loss. Much love and prayers, Sheryl Hall.

    The Glover Family,

    You were my son’s first football coach, and will always be remembered. I always felt you had a fondness for him, but I know you felt the same about all your boys. I appreciate all you and your family have done for the community, and offer my sincere condolences to all remaining members of your family.

    RIP Coach

    I love you so much and will miss you dearly. I will miss your special smile and your laughter. I will always have a place for you in my heart. I will always keep you in my prayers. Herman, Kay, Rickey, Chrissy I love you so much.

  16. The Budd Family says

    We only just got to know Coach Tucker this football season but we greatly feel his loss. It’s hard to believe we will never see his big smile or hear him challenging and pushing and laughing with the boys again. He had such delight in football and in young people. He made our son feel special–but he did that for everyone. He was so proud of his family, and would often show us videos of his boys’ latest sports achievements. We are so sad for his children who will miss their dad, and all the support and love he offered.

    We will never forget him, and our prayers go out to his family and his many, many friends.

    My Deepest Sympathy in the loss of Herman Tucker. My heartfelt prayers go out to the family and friends who all loved him dearly. I have known Herman for over 30 yrs. He always had a loving smile and a good heart. He went to be with the Lord the day after my birthday. I lost my beloved brother last year to a unexpected and tragic death. Herman was there for our family in our time of need. I will Always remember him expressing his Faith and offering to pray for me anytime day or night. Hold on to the Promises of God and he will give you Strength to carry on. His work in the community and coaching youth brought Joy and laughter to all that he touched. Although our brother, father and friend departed this life on earth, we will see him again in Heaven. May you Rest in Peace &Forever leave your footprints. You will be truly missed but, Never forgotten. May God Bless.

  18. Elaine McDonald says

    Would like to convey my sympathy to the family. I was counselor at his sons middle school, in Federal Way. I am keeping the family in my prayers, and would like them to know I am unable to attend the celebration of Mr. Tucker’s life due to an already scheduled obligation. I pray God’s blessing and peace and comfort upon the family and friends.

  21. Stephanie Akers says

    To the Tucker family, My heart thoughts and prayers are with you all. Your son was such a sweet and gentle person and will be greatly missed. I remember when we were in grade school and all of us girls had the biggest crush on Herman even back then he was a nice guy. (smile) I had the pleasure of working many years with you “Big Herman” and with your son right next door and when he would come over the deep love between you two was such a joy too watch you both always had big smiles on your faces.
    Herman Jr you will be missed and never forgotten.

  22. Jeanna Yuman-Trammel says

    In Memory of My Dear Friend Herman Tucker What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget” you will never be forgotten . We continue to Uplift the Family in prayers, for Peace, Comfort and Strength in your time of Sorrow and Grief . . Herman had a smile that would light up a room and he was such a sweet and kind and caring person he will never be forgotten. God Bless you all Jeanna Yuman-Trammel and Jeffery Trammel.

    Maya Angelou said- “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” A person couldn’t help feeling special in the presence of Herman. One of the numerous gifts he gave to so many. I feel blessed having had him as a friend along the path of my life.

    Forever, Rue
    I extend my heartfelt condolences to the Tucker Family.

  26. CHARLES LYLES JR. says

    HERM !!! I will never forget the first time I met you man. I was with Kiyiana on Military Road because she said you wanted to see her(Well me mostly-to size me up). We all went to Denny’s and ate and we had a good time. Alot of people in the family don’t know this but you were the main reason why Kiyiana & I stayed together. You always had BOTH OF OUR BACKS !!! and told me “you guys are young and are going to argue but whatever you do make sure you come and talk to me, don’t let your anger get the best of you”. You was right and I followed your advice. I could tell in your eyes that you wanted a good man to to take good care of your niece and love her. I’m so glad you got to see that if there’s anything I’ll keep forever in my mind is two things you said to me.
    1.) No matter what Kiyiana said about you Chuckie you’re alright with me. (That would always make me laugh).

    2.) Chuckie you saved me from beating up so many deadbeats that wanted to date my niece. (That one made me laugh too).

    Let me end this in a language you understand. By a unaminous decision I’ve given in and my tears have won this round. GOD I MISS YOU MAN !!!!

    Although your time on earth has provided many of us happy memories just know that you are missed. Even though we lost touch through the years I know your kinder spirit has touch many lives as it has touched mines. I remember when you bought that limousine and how you was going to make it big… remembering the Rainier and CAYA games and how you ran up and down the field…remembering most of all the smile that you gave no matter what life was throwing your way. I pray for your family and most of all your children. You have been summons to be with the Lord, God has a bigger plan and your chapter walking with the mortals has ended, I know we’ll meet again where the streets are paved..Rest in Paradise as you are now a King amongst Kings…

  29. Mr n Mrs Marion Spears says

    To The Tucker Family – Herman I need to say that I truly appreciate the love that you showed my brother- RedBone- in his times of need when I was unable to be there for him physically. You meant a lot to him and to all of us. My wife and I are praying for the Lord to be with The Tucker Family through this time and we know that HE will shield you all from things you cannot handle. As difficult as this time is, GOD truly knows best. It is with the most humble heart that we send our prayers and love.

    Herman its still hard for me t believe that you are actually gone. I feel like ur jus out of town n one of your trips. I didnt see you go into the ground and i visited u yesterday and there was no head stone.I look at all these things that says u r gone and its still hard to believe. I have ur ring tone on all calls, hoping that one day it will b u. I MISS U CALLING BY MY MIDDLE NAME (RENNE), CALLING ME( MRS TUCKER), AND INTRODUCING ME TO EVERYONE AS YOUR WIFE.You was so happy about having ur boys with u, and I know that YOUR plan would have been complete once we bought our house and got married. We both know how much we loved each other no matter what. We shared so many secrects, our dreams our pain and our joys. I need your strenght to get me thru this. You always say sometimes im to strong, well here is one of those moments that im not as strong as u think i am. I need u so much right now that everyday Im on auto pilot, just doing what I know i should be doing but not really thinking. Im missing u,please come home, but if not. I will once again be with u forever

    Your RENNE,your WIFE, your LOVE

    Herman was an inspiration for me since a young age. I remember him being the first person of my kind I ever saw with brand new shining tennis shoes. In fact he always had the best when I saw him. With that being said every time we came across each other in recent years was a good encounter. I only have good memories of Herman. He will be missed in my soul as an older brother.

    Love you Herm, I’ll see you when I get there
