Ernest Lee “Tee” Tucker, 87, passed away peaceful Monday January 8, 2018 with his wife and daughter by his side.

Funeral Services celebrating his life will be held 3:00PM Thursday January 11, 2018 at Shady Grove Wesleyan Church, of which he was a longtime member, with Pastor Nate Kingsbury and Rev. Phil Kirkman officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.

Tee was born October 13, 1930 in Guilford County to the late Cornelius McLean Tucker and Ethel Farrington Tucker. He was the oldest of nine children of which three survive. In addition he also was preceded in death by his beloved granddaughter Lauren Elizabeth Cole, and siblings Irene, Hazel, Mary, Glenda, and Henry.

At a very young age Tee’s father taught him to operate a Tractor which started his passion. Dementia and declining health left Tee unable to do what he enjoyed the most, being on his Tractor. After retiring from the City of Greensboro, Tee was allowed even more time to spend performing his passion to work on lawns and tractors for friends and neighbors.

Survivors include his loving wife of 66 years Lois Knight Tucker of the home; daughter Cindy Cole and Dennis of Summerfield; sisters Bonnie Henderson, Louise Mabe, and Nancy Dillon; half-brothers Wayne Tucker, Michael Tucker, and Darrell Tucker; and a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

The family will visit with friends from 5-7pm Wednesday evening at the Pierce-Jefferson Funeral &
Cremation Services Chapel.
