October 7, 1985 — March 15, 2024

Christopher Crawford Tucker, age 38, passed away unexpectedly surrounded by his loved ones on Friday, March 15, 2024. He was born on October 7, 1985, in Macon, Georgia, to Herman Crawford Tucker, Jr. and Mary Ann Willis Tucker. Christopher was raised in both Valdosta, Georgia, and Misawa, Japan. He graduated from Edgren High School in Misawa, Japan in 2004. He returned to his family’s hometown of Byron, Ga to complete his technical education at Central Georgia Technical College.

He had a passion for dirt track racing and dedicated 15 years to the sport at Cochran Motor Speedway. Beyond racing, he found joy in outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and tinkering with machinery. Christopher served as a work leader and Aircraft Mechanic on C-17 at Robins Air Force Base. He was known for his willingness to assist anyone in need.

While Christopher did not have children of his own, he cherished his role as the fun uncle, treating all of the children as if they were his own. Christopher will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and love for his family.
