Our condolences go out to the Tucker family on the loss of their father, Benjamin F. Tucker.
He was a prominent business man in the community for his entire life and was mentioned in the book “A Short History of Northeast Philadelphia” by Harry Silcox.
State Senator Tartaglione sent this message to the family:
I was very saddened to learn of the passing of your loved one, Mr. Benjamin F. Tucker. His death is a tremendous loss for the entire Frankford community.
As a committee person and poll worker for more than two decades, Mr. Tucker left behind a distinguished legacy of civic engagement and public service. His sustained effort to improve the lives of his neighbors will always be remembered fondly.
It is my distinct honor to pay tribute to Mr. Tucker and to offer my deepest condolences to you at this difficult time. Please know that I will always be available to assist your family in any way I can.
Mr. Tucker passed away in April and the family has planned a Service of Celebration at Northeast Baptist Church for this coming Friday, July 3rd. Details are listed below.
When you Believe in Hope, you believe in the promise of tomorrow.
When you give up hope, you give up the promise of today.

HEROES OF TODAY
I intend to be okay,
I intend to be all right,
I intend never to give in,
I intend to keep up the fight,
I intend to never go away,
I intend to do it right, I intend to be forgiven,
I intend to hold on tight,
I intend to keep on pushing,
I intend to push right through the night.
Because I’m one of the nurses that work with you day and night.
