Bev Tucker died of cancer (lung, then brain) Oct. 27, 2011, after four days in hospice care in Wickford, R.I., with his family present.
Bev came to us from Walnut Hills High School. He roomed with Monty Lewis, Forde Medina, and Vic Raiser. Majoring in mathematics, he was on the varsity lightweight crew, participated in Triangle, and dined at Ivy Club.
After graduation he worked briefly at IBM and then joined the Marine Corps, serving for three years as an officer in Camp Pendleton, Okinawa, and Da Nang. He married Constance Kane in 1963 and they had three children. After earning an M.B.A. from Harvard in 1967, Bev went to Morgan Stanley in New York. In 1975 he returned to Ohio, working for Fifth Third Bank in Cincinnati in the trust department. He retired in 1990 as executive vice president.
Farming and sailing were Bev’s hobbies during his working career. He and Constance moved to Philip, S.D., in 1996, raising cattle for commercial sale. At the end, Bev yearned to be “back at the ranch.”
The class offers condolences to Constance; his children, Sarah, Stewart, and Nate; and his sister, Marshall.
