Went to school with "Tuck" and basically was raised up around him. Worked at the 'Pipe Plant" with him twice, the last time being in 2014 when the plant closed. Again. He will truly be missed by many. Will keep him and his family and friends in my thoughts and prayers in the upcoming days. RIP "Tuck"!
