Nathaniel (Nath) Tucker

January 4, 1951 to November 12, 2016


On Saturday evening November 12th, 2016 our precious Nath left us very peacefully but with broken hearts to be reunited with his Mom (Eliza – 2015), Dad (William – 1982), Brother (Walter – 2013, Mother-in-law (Joan Coffin – 2005) and Nephew (Stephen – 2016)

Leaving behind with an emptiness that can never be filled is Nath’s loving and devoted wife Verniece (nee Coffin) and his three sons Keith (Cheryl), Shawn (Tina), Colin (Lynn), his grandchildren whom he adored Cheyanne, Brady and Ryan, brother-in-law Wayne Coffin (Judy) and his furry friend Lucy.

Also left with a lifetime of good memories are his siblings: Louise Tucker (Lew – deceased), Mary Carlson (Milt), Elsie Mitchell (Hayward), Catherine Rose (Baxter), Carol Ann Tucker (Terry Wiseman), Bill (Rhonda) and sister-in-law Gertie Tucker. Nieces and Nephews Bonnie Tucker (Glendon) Leonard, Marianne Baker (Robert), Megan Hiscott (Michael), Michael Rose (Tanya), Leah Burry (Jason), Tracey Boland (Mark), Roger Patey, Jennifer Tucker (Madison), Jordan Tucker, Scott Coffin, and Adam Coffin. Nath also leaves many, many good friends and many relatives especially best friend Johnnie Tucker (Kim), and aunts Catherine Squires, Rita Tucker, Edith Tucker, Florence Tucker, and Grace Mitchell.

Visitation will take place at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, on Monday, November 14 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday, November 15 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. Funeral service to be held at St. Philip’s Anglican Church, St. Philip’s on Wednesday, November 16 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Philip’s Anglican Church.

Since losing our father in 1982, Nath has been the glue that held us all together. There will never be another person in this world that meant so much to his family as Nath. He was the kindest and the most good hearted person ever, and loved by everyone who knew him. We were so blessed to have him in our family. Never to be forgotten and always to be loved.
