Orville Roy “Butch” Jr, 63, of Republic, passed away, Jun 16, 2022 at Spectrum Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI after a short illness.
Butch was born Dec 12, 1958, in California to Orville “Roy” Tuck Sr and Linda Lou Gladys (Ostrander) Tuck.
Butch loved the Lord and loved attending church and listening to Contemporary Christian Music. He also loved the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, and long walks were favorite past times. He enjoyed playing cards, eating out, playing tennis, and shooting pool.
He was employed by Michigan Wisconsin Spring & Brake in Iron Mountain for many years as a salesman. Because he had the gift of gab, he excelled at this position. He could strike up a conversation, any time, anywhere, and was truly knowledgeable regarding heavy duty truck parts. He made many friends over the years and was very attentive to the needs of his customers.
Butch will be missed by his three children, daughter, Tasha Jo (Frank) Robles, sons Marcus Tuck and Shayne Tuck; grandchildren, Dakota, Michael, Violet, and Aurora Robles; the mother of his children, Kay Tuck; his mother, Linda Conway; siblings, Dan (Lois) Tuck, Cindy Tuck, Belinda (Ron) Way, Dave (Julie) Tuck, Mary (Smoke) Skillern; stepsister, Cathy Conway; stepbrothers, Dennis and Bobby Conway; and nu8merous nieces, nephews and their children.
He was preceded in death by his father, Roy Tuck; infant son, Travis; and his stepfather, Dennis Conway.
A private graveside service is planned.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Butch’s name, may be sent to North Iron Church, 910 Palms Avenue, Ishpeming, MI 49849.
