He leaves behind his life-mate Gloria Tucker; mother Ruby Coombs; brother John (Vonnie); father-in-law Harold Tucker Sr.; brothers-in-law Harold G. (Fanny) Tucker and Dean Tucker; nephews Jamie (Shelley), and Boyd (Heidi); and great-nieces Alexis Tucker, Anna Tucker, Alyson Caines and Aria Tucker. Bill also leaves behind a large family of aunts, uncles and cousins and a huge circle of friends. Bill made a big impact on the many health-care professionals who got to know him during his illness and they have joined his circle of friends. He was predeceased by his father Wilfred.
