Birth: Jun. 12, 1929
Death: Jan. 27, 2010

William Gibbs Tucker, 80, of Georgetown, died January 27, 2010. He was born in Moultrie, Georgia on June 12, 1929.

He graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in civil engineering, after which, he served in the Army Corp of Engineers. He had the privilege of serving our country in France during the post war reconstruction. Through this he found a love for traveling in Europe, which he added to his interests in reading, music and nature.

For 2 years he worked for J. A. Jones Construction Company from which he retired in 1993 as Vice President/Construction Manager. His work allowed the family to live in many places from California to Virginia. He never lost his fascination and appreciation for commercial construction and architecture.

During his retirement he was active in his church through Bible study and serving as a Stephens Minister. Traveling continued to be a priority and pleasure. He was also involved with The Military Order of the Worlds Wars.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Gudrun Tucker; son, Karsten Tucker and wife Bel; daughter Brenna Metz and husband Alex; daughter Rebecca Glace and husband Chuck; and nine grandchildren.

Funeral services were held Monday morning, February 1, 2010, at Faith Lutheran Church in Georgetown. Private interment followed at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen, Texas.

Arrangements by Ramsey Funeral Home and Crematorium, Georgetown, Texas.
