Obituary for Claude Erskine Tucker

Claude Erskine Tucker passed away on Wednesday, August 22, 2018
from cancer. Erskine was a native Charlottean born in the NODA area
on October 15, 1933 to Flossie Grace and Nathan Claude
Tucker. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Shelia Jordan Tucker, two
sons, Mark Tucker and wife, LuAnn; Bryan Tucker and one daughter, Marleta
Tucker Menzel and husband, Kirk Menzel all of Charlotte, NC. Survivors also
include his “grands”, Correy Jordan Menzel of Johnson City, TN, Hampton
Banks Tucker and Anna Claire Tucker of Charlotte.
Also surviving is one brother, Joe Tucker and wife Kathy Tucker of Newport,
NC. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Nathan, Harold and
Lee Tucker and a sister, Ruth Tucker Fitzgerald.
After serving in the U.S. Navy, Erskine was employed by the US Postal Service for 20 years and later established Install-It, Inc., a sales/service company of office panel systems and furniture for 11 years.
His family always came first, never missing an event where his children or
grands participated. He enjoyed golfing with friends and had a hole-in-one while
vacationing with lifelong friends in Florida. He loved to travel and enjoyed
cruising different countries. He was happiest while flounder gigging and surf
fishing at the beach. The family enjoyed many fun summers with the “grands”
at their home on Holden Beach.
He has been a member of Eastern Hills Baptist Church for over 55 years and
served as a deacon, Sunday school teacher, and for the past 20 years,
associate Sunday School Director.
He was part of a group of men who met at Jimmie’s Restaurant in Mint Hill
every Wednesday morning at 6:30 AM. There was a contest about the largest
piece of country ham on the biscuit. Photos were sent to him while in the
hospital.
A service to celebrate his life will be held at 4:00 PM Saturday, August 25, 2018 at Eastern Hills Baptist Church, Charlotte, NC. The family will receive friends from 3:00-4:00 PM prior to the service.
