William Tucker

William “Bill” Evan Tucker was born May 24, 1934 and left this world on Dec. 30, 2015. Son of Legia Constance Weber and William Oliver Boggess, Bill grew up in Granite Falls, Wash.

He served as sergeant in the US Marines from 1953 to 1956. After serving in Korea, Bill opened Tucker’s Place, a beauty salon in Seattle. Moving to Whidbey Island in 1975, Bill, a self-taught woodworker, started successful businesses, Genuine CedarFlex and Whidbey South Woodworks.

One of Bill’s greatest achievements and sources of pride was creating the Cascade League and unifying the Greater Seattle Fast Pitch Softball Association. He was recognized by the former Mayor, Wes Uhlman, for advocating youth fast pitch in the schools of Seattle.

Bill strongly supported the Little League programs in Granite Falls and on Whidbey Island. He leaves behind a legacy of humor, hard work and commitment with his wife Sandra, children, Merrilyn, Michael, Matthew, Mark, Megan, Molly, Marshall, Miles, Shawn Barrett and seven grandchildren. Memorial services pending.
