Grant Tucker of Goshen Kentucky passed away peacefully on November 21, 2020, surrounded by his family. Grant was born on November 17, 2008 and is survived by his parents Keith and Carre Tucker, big brother and role model Tanner Tucker, grandparents Ron and Donna Tucker and Bob and Bette Gordon, aunts Ilyse Gordon McCormick,  Lori Gordon, uncles Bruce Hidaka-Gordon (Sugano),  Mark Gordon (Tracy Morrison), ‘aunt and uncle’ Beth and Chris McBride; and his adored cousins Max and Jordan McCormick, Saylor and CJ McBride, Taiki and Akira Hidaka-Gordon, Sasha Gordon and his extended family.  Also surviving are so many best friends, big brothers, basketball, baseball and cross-country teammates, schoolmates, a neighborhood where he roamed daily and a community, where he brought joy and light to everyone he met.  Grant, we miss you and love you.

He was a fierce competitor with a big heart, a champion for the underdog, and a driven spirit. Grant was “that boy” who was always smiling and easy to spot with his blonde (sometimes blue) curls. Anyone who encountered him once would remember him forever, as he never met a stranger. He loved so many but is loved by so many more.  The world is a good deal dimmer now that Grant’s bright and beautiful light is gone.  May his memory be a blessing.

In lieu of flowers, and in honor of Grant’s love, and compassion, please donate to your favorite children’s charity.
