Kim Ivan Tucker, age 69 of Kronenwetter, passed away on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at his home under the care of Compassus Hospice with his wife at his side.
He was born on August 1, 1953, in Key West, FL, son of the late Ivan and Janet (Pickard) Tucker. On April 2, 1977, he married Rosann Zinser at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Weston.
Kim enjoyed snowmobiling and watching NASCAR, as well as cheering for any Wisconsin sports team. He was mechanically inclined and liked to tinker – especially on his “muscle” cars. In earlier years, he and his wife owned and operated a hobby farm. Prior to retiring, Kim worked as a diesel mechanic for Ryder. Upon his diagnosis of PSP six years ago, he and Rosann embarked on many travels together, including trips to Alaska, New Zealand, Australia, and the Panama Canal, crossing off many bucket list items.
Survivors include his wife, Rosann Tucker of Kronenwetter; three children, Keith (Teri) Tucker of Athens, Karen (Brian) Yessa of Athens, and Eric (Katie) Tucker of Marathon; four grandchildren, Tyler, Bradley, and Derek Yessa and Cassandra Tucker; two great-grandchildren, Caleb and Hudson Yessa; three siblings, Randy (Laurel) Tucker, Elizabeth (Jerry) French, and Robert (Audrey) Tucker.
