Crescent Mills businessman Jack Dale Tucker passed from this life peacefully, Saturday evening, August 5, 2017 at his residence in Crescent Mills following a valiant battle with cancer. His daughter and son were at his side.

Born into a migrant farm workers family, Jack and his family settled in the Salinas Valley where Jack graduated from Salinas High School as a member of the "Class of 1946". While attending high school he lettered in football and enjoyed woodworking.

Shortly following his high school graduation Jack along with a couple of his buddies joined the U.S. Army Air Corp where Jack served his country honorably for three years as a Classification Specialist helping in the discharge of World War II Veterans.

He returned to the Salinas Valley upon his discharge where he worked as a Hotel Supply Salesperson, an Automotive Salesperson as well as owning and operating numerous restaurants and taverns. Following an earlier marriage that ended in divorce but gave Jack two daughters, Jack married the women who became the love of his life, best friend and business partner, Barbara Joan Parkey. To this union two sons and a daughter were born.

Jack, Barbara and family relocated to the Northeastern California community of Crescent Mills, CA in 1975 where for twenty two years, he alongside of Barbara owned and operated the Crescent Hotel and Restaurant. Following the sale of the Hotel and restaurant he could be found helping Barbara and their daughter Lisa around Crescent Country Gift Shop. He enjoyed collecting antique cars and firearms and later in life gardening.
In Jacks passing he leaves his daughter's; Lisa Forcino of Crescent Mills, Teri Haas of Quincy and Kim Tucker-Wolf of Galina, Alaska, son; Jon Tucker and wife Lisa of Tulsa, OK, along 12 grand and 11 grandchildren.
