It was my honor and privilege to know and serve with Dr. Tuck. I have never met a kinder, more humble servant of God. It was evident to everyone who met him that he loved his Lord, his family, his church, and whatever work he was doing at the time. He will be greatly missed. May his example inspire all of us to remain faithful until our end comes. Praying for his family and friends, Drs. Jim and Carolyn Carrigan

I was so saddened by this news. My condolences to the family on this sudden loss. My family and I will continue to pray for you guys during this time of grief. Mr. Tuck is a hero from my perspective. He is a wonderful example of selfless service and humility. Without his input early in life, I would not have had clear educational and career visibility to how I could use my talents for a robust and meaningful career. I’m thankful for our friendship and his legacy. Because of his input, I studied and completed Electrical Engineering at Clemson University. I am thankful for his life and the wonderful memories. May God bless and hold you during this time. My love and appreciation to the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Harold was one of the nicest people I have ever met. He was a faithful teacher to our Sunday School class (Victory Class at Oakwood Baptist Church) for many years. Our class truly loved Harold. He is still mentioned often in the class and has been prayed or many times. Still have fond memories of Christmas parties at his home. In fact, I have pictures taken at one of those parties. He just had a way of making everyone feel special. He will be missed. Thanks, Harold, for all the fond memories you left us.

I have many precious memories of Mr. & Mrs. Tuck. I sat in their classrooms for 4 years as a student. They also attended our wedding in 1987, which really meant a lot to me. We enjoyed their fellowship at Oakwood. He will be greatly missed. We loved the Tuck family!

I always admired and respected Mr. Tuck. He along with two others are most responsible for giving me the desire to go to college. The first was my sixth grade teacher, Mr. Bob Garrett, who now is also with the Lord. The second is Mrs. June Tuck, who taught all my high school math courses. And then Mr. Tuck, who never failed to encourage me during high school and college as well. As President of the TCS Class of '82, I told our principal, Mr. Richard Hughes, that Mr. and Mrs. Tuck were going to be our senior trip chaperones to Disney World. He told me that the class needed to vote on that under Roberts Rules of Order, I told Mr. Hughes: "No sir. This is an executive decision." I never will forget the smile on his face. And we all had one fine time in Florida with Mr. and Mrs. Tuck. Just before my freshman year began, Mr. Tuck once sternly told me on the front porch of Tabernacle Baptist Church: "There will likely come a time when you will want to throw your textbooks in the trash and quit Clemson. When and if that happens, you must promise me that you will call me first so I can talk you out of it. The Lord has great things in store for you and it all starts with a college education." I promised him I would make that call if need be. I can honestly say that never once did I think of quitting college. Perhaps subconsciously to avoid having to keep my word to this great man, who I will see again -- one day after a while. I Thessalonians 4:13-18 (KJV).
