Mr. William Carroll Tucker Jr. was called home to the Lord on May 7, 2022, while peacefully resting in his home he shared with his wife.
William was born in Hampton, Va., on Sept. 20, 1964, to Sheila and William Tucker Sr. William attended high school in Hampton before moving to the Eastern Shore and settling on Chincoteague Island.
