Eric Lee Tuck, Sr., 46, lost his continuous fight with mental illness on May 1, 2022.
Lovingly known as “Tuck,” if knew him, you know he was quite the personality; the cliched force to be reckoned with. He had the most beautiful blue eyes. He was handsome, strong, stubborn, opinionated, loud, dramatic, passionate, emotional, and silly. He could redneck fix anything. He prided himself on having a plethora of useless information and he always had a bad dad joke on standby. He always said, “anything worth doing is worth doing well.” He loved eighties music, sad movies, playing guitar, golfing, riding dirt bikes (but mostly only fixing them), watching UFC fights, cheering on his favorite teams-the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Cleveland Browns, the Columbus Blue Jackets and any team his kids were on. He enjoyed getting dressed up and acting fancy. He loved Philly cheesesteaks and strawberry milkshakes. He did almost everything with a Mountain Dew in his hand and a Marlboro hanging out his mouth. He loved taking road trips and going on adventures. He could talk for hours, and he usually did. His dream was always to be a grandpa and have a cookout with all of his kids and grandkids and sit back with a beer and watch them play. Eric always ended the phone conversation with “love you, bye” and if you didn’t say it, you were getting a call back. So, Eric, until we meet again, love you, bye.
Eric was born February 17, 1976 in Sharon, Pennsylvania. He was preceded in death by his mother, Debra Morris; his brother, Billy Joe Van Scoik; and his sister, Amy Lee Van Scoik. He is survived by his wife, Casey Canter Tuck, who never stopped loving him. They were married August 16, 2010. He is also survived by his children, Shelby (Aaron) Hill, Eric Tuck, Jr., Talon Tuck, Dalton Canter, Gunner Tuck and Macklin Tuck; two beautiful granddaughters, Logann and Reese Hill; his father, Michael (Sheila) Tuck; his sisters, Melanie (Travis) Rausch and Shannon (Robert Smith) Stinedurf; his father-and mother-in-law, Eric (Lisa) Canter; his sister-in-law, Amber (Kevin) Long; his brother-in-law, Charles (Chelsea) Canter; and many nieces and nephews whom he adored. A Celebration of Life memorial service will be held 6 p.m. Monday, May 9, 2022 at Magnetic Springs United Methodist Church where the family will receive friends beginning at 5 p.m. and following the service with food and fellowship. Pastor Judy Cramer will officiate. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.underwoodfuneralhome.com.
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
And don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
If you are struggling with mental health,
please know that there is hope and don’t be afraid to seek help.
There’s always tomorrow, just breathe.
