Mike Tucker – 1964 – 2020

Home » The Mickey Spirit » Mike Tucker – 1964 – 2020

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Mike Tucker, our friend and former President and CEO of Mickey Truck Bodies. Mike, 56, died on June 7 at his home in Greenville, NC, after a courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Heidi Flanigan Tucker; daughters Emma Corinne Tucker of Washington, D.C., and Claire Johnston Tucker of Durham; father Dr. Donald H. Tucker of Greenville; brother Donald H. Tucker, Jr.; and sister Susan Tucker Weaver of Raleigh.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Mike Tucker

I competed with Mike for over 25 years while he ran Hackney. While he was always a fierce competitor, he was also an outstanding professional and a true gentleman. As the saying goes, “He was tough but fair.” I was elated when Mike agreed to join Mickey in 2018, and in 2019 it was with great pride and confidence that I named him the President and CEO of Mickey Truck Bodies, the first ever non-Mickey family member to hold that title.

From the moment Mike came on board in High Point, he began earning the respect and support of all his Mickey teammates with his thirst for business, his decisive decision-making his intellectual curiosity. He embodied the Mickey 3 D’s – desire, dedication, and determination – long before he ever joined our company. The only times he left his office early were the nights he traveled to Durham to watch his beloved Duke Blue Devils play basketball at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Mike graduated magna cum laude from Duke in 1985.

Mike’s time at Mickey was cut way too short. But he left an enduring legacy of integrity, humility and sincere warmth and consideration for his colleagues.

Sincerely,

 

 

Dean Sink
Executive Chairman
