Doug Tucker, 62 of Byron, died on Friday, June 19th, 2020 at home.
He was born on August 21, 1957 to Truman and Mabel (Cumins) Tucker.
Graduated from Auburn High School, Class of 1975.
He was joined in marriage on August 22, 1981 to Angel Ulander at the Sinnissippi Rose Gardens.
They lived in Rockford until Oct. 14, 1994 when they designed and built their home and where he wanted to be the last days of his life.
He has a 1976 Road Runner which was his baby and a 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 with all the bells and whistles that he loved.
He worked as an Outside Service Coordinator at CamCar for 20 years where he met many of his good friends and is still. When CamCar closed, he was a CDL driver at Blue Water Thermal for almost 15 years.
Doug was a die-hard Cubs and Bears fan and he watched both win their prospective championships. He loved Crown Royal whisky and was an avid collector of rare C.R. whisky. He loved and collected owls and eagle figurines. He had an awesome “Man Cave”, full of Cubs, Bears, Bulls, and golf memorabilia. He loved to golf with his friends until he was too ill to do so.
He also loved his fur-babies, Sally (his baby) and Dusty, his two cats. Since his passing, he got to reunite with Smokey, Ashley, Molly, Mandy (his Buddy) and Sassy at Rainbow Bridge in Heaven.
Friends were the most important thing to him and to make people laugh. He wanted to give special heartfelt thanks to Scott & June and Brian & Tracy for taking care of Angel. It's very hard to put 42 years of Doug’s life with Angel in one paragraph!
He was the love of Angel’s life - forever and always.
The visitation will be held on Thursday, June 25th, 2020 beginning at 12:00 p.m. at Sundberg Funeral Home.
The funeral service will begin at 1:00 p.m. Burial will take place at Arlington Cemetery, Rockford.
