Othel Eugene Tucker was born November 9, 1925 to Valis and Cora (Miller) Tucker in Samuels, Idaho. He grew up in Samuels and attended school through the eighth grade at which point he stayed home to help the family during the depression years. He enlisted in the United States Army serving as a paratrooper and combat medic in the South Pacific during World War II. Othel was honorably discharged and returned home to Sandpoint, Idaho. On September 9, 1951, he was united in marriage to Eva Mae Lacock. Their union was blessed with four children and 64 years marriage together. In 1954, the couple moved to Montana and returned to Sandpoint in 1958. In 1963, they moved to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho where they made their home and raised their family. Othel worked for the City of Coeur d'Alene in the streets department for 25 years as a street sign maker. He retired in 1989 and enjoyed attending his grandchildren's events.
