Obituary for Virgil Ernest Tucker

Virgil Ernest  Tucker
Virgil Ernest Tucker passed from this world to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 17, 2018. His passing was peaceful, quiet and attended by The Holy Spirit. He was 74 years old.
Virgil was a proud native Californian, having been born in San Diego on January 20, 1944. He, his father, Jr, and his brother Ronald built and raced fuel altered cars in the 50's and were clocking world class times. They soon pursued other occupations but cars were in their blood. Make no mistake! Virgil went to Vietnam and was actually given his draft notice mixed in with his birthday cards on his 21st birthday.
When he came back from Vietnam, he was not a happy boy and promptly joined an outlaw motorcycle club. Some 20ish years later, he gave up that life and became a proud and loving member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He served in many callings and his last and best was working in the Los Angeles Temple for 3 years.
He and his wife of 34 years were sealed for time and all eternity in the San Diego Temple. Virgil suffered for 38 years from a blood disease cause by Agent Orange in Vietnam. A blood disease to this day, denied to be caused by Agent Orange. His wife, Lorion, will continue to get validation, not monetarily, but for he and all other Vietnam Vets who suffer the same fate.
He built a 1922 T Bucket Roadster from the ground up, still his pride and joy.
He is survived by his wife, Lorion, nephew, Craig Lippert and too many friends, nieces and nephews to count.
Until we meet again, My Beloved. -your loving wife, Lorion

Funeral service will be held at 10am on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints with Bishop Ed Shotten officiating. Family will receive friends from 9am until the time of service at the church.
