It’s with great sadness we lost our Jimmie Tucker Trucking legend, Robert “Bobby” Tucker on Monday, December 2, 2019 surrounded by his family. He was born December 12,1949 in DeQueen, AR to James A. and Marjorie Tucker (Johnson).
Bobby and Sharon (Cotney) were united in marriage September 10, 1971 and shared forty-eight years before his passing. He and Sharon were members of the First Baptist Church in Broken Bow.
Bobby was the President of Jimmie Tucker Trucking Co. Trucking has always been a large part of his life. No load too big or too small. He also enjoyed flying his plane and traveling with his wife in their motor home. He always said he could operate anything with a wheel. Bobby was an Avid OU football fan, he lived and breathed OU football. Most of all he cherished spending time with his family. Challenged with many obstacles in his life he was always a problem solver and enjoyed helping people.
