Last night at approximately 6:15 pm Kingsbridge resident E.W. Tucker died in a motor vehicle accident. Early reports indicate that his vehicle may have crossed the center line on FM 205 and hit a large truck heading in the opposite direction head-on where he reportedly died instantly.
In a written statement, Mayor Robert Steinhagen expressed his shock and sadness for the loss.
Mr. Tucker was a true character with a great sense of humor. The very first time I met him he asked me to call him “Mother,” a moniker that I didn’t fully appreciate until I put it together with his last name, which says a lot about his sense of humor and lighthearted nature. Mother emailed me at least once a week with some wonderful bits of humor and things that we both found interesting, which included some great political satire. He was also a great encourager whenever he saw me come under attack by political foes, quick to urge me to hold my ground for what is true, honorable and right. I will truly miss this wonderful man.
Please pray for the Tucker family as they grieve.
