Born June 23, 1910 on the family farm near Metropolis, Mr. Stucker had lived in South Bend since 1942, coming from Gary, Ind. He retired from the Torrington Company in 1975 after 30 years of service in supervision.
Mr. Stucker filled his retirement with travel and helping his daughter and son-in-law restore their Victorian home in the Old Northside Historic District using his considerable woodworking skills. Well into his late 90s, Mr. Stucker traveled to Ireland, England, Quebec, Curacao, Arizona and Florida with his family while wearing his trademark ties. He was a member of the Church of Christ in Nile, Mich.
Survivors include one daughter, Beverly Stucker Precious and husband Brent A. Precious; one cousin, Wendell Riepe of Metropolis; and two nieces, Bobbie Ponda of Parker, Colo. and Billie Zeller of Hebron, Ind.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Minnie A. Powers Stucker; one sister, Katy Westerman; and one brother, Norman Stucker.
A private graveside service was held for the family in Riverview Cemetery.
