Dan was born March 15, 1924 in Guilford County to the late Grace Morgan Tucker and William Elmer Tucker. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his first wife Mary Freiland Tucker and his second wife Lucy Tucker.

After his service in the Army, he worked for Arnold Stone Company, a subsidiary of Carolina Steel.  His true love was his time spent farming the land and building tractors.  He was known to have the talent to build anything that was needed whether it be concrete, steel or wood.
