Leonard T. Tucker
November 26, 1927 - November 14, 2017


On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, Leonard T. Tucker reported to Post Everlasting.  Leonard T. Tucker was a Merrick Post No. 1282 member and he was very active at the Post and was our Service Officer at our Post for a number years. Lenny was a World War II Navy Veteran.

When Lenny walked in the room he always made you smile and he would laugh at  your corny jokes. You could always joke around with Lenny, he was truly a gentleman. He led and had a wonderful and fullfilling life. God speed my friend. Thank you for being in my life, you touched many people who knew you.

Lenny will be sorely missed.
