Obituary for John William Tucker

On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, John "Lil Brother" William Tucker left this earthly life to go to his eternal resting place to be with the Lord.

Lil' Brother professed his hope in Christ and embraced the Holy Spirit at an early age. He later joined Emmanuel Baptist Church in 1991. He was a faithful member attending Sunday School, singing in the Men's Choir and later became an ordained Deacon. He served as long as he could until health started to fail.

Lil' Brother attended Wheatley High School and enlisted in the United States Navy, after High School. He served in Norfolk, Virginia.

Lil' Brother's professional career was a businessman and owner of restaurants and night club
for over 50 years in both Los Angeles, California and San Antonio, Texas. He also worked as an associate barber in local barber shops on a part-time basis.
