Benjamin Charles Tucker, 24, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at his home in Blue Ridge, TX. Ben was born in Amarillo, TX on October 14, 1997. He graduated from Canyon High School and owned and operated Valiant City Restoration.
Ben will forever be remembered for his joyful presence and generous character. He was a stranger to no one and always the life of the party. From a very young age, he displayed immense drive and passion in anything he set his mind to. Full of talent and hard work he would accomplish his goals and seek new ones at every opportunity.
Ben always felt that his true purpose in life was to protect and watch over his mom and sisters as well as many other family and friends. Although Ben is not with us today, his presence is with everyone that he touched, and he will continue to watch over them.
Ben’s spirit will be forever cherished by his entire family. He is preceded in death by his grandfather Charles Steven Green and survived by his best friend and grandmother Ana Green, along with his other grandparents Doug and Lynn Hooker, Tommy and Ginger Tucker, his parents Amy Thompson and Don Thompson, Charles Tucker and Paige Tucker; his siblings: Alizabeth Posadas, Gracie Tucker, Abrham Posadas, Shaun Mentaberry, Madeleine and Aiden Lewis, Seth Thompson, and a niece Delilah Posadas. In addition, Ben is survived by numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins and leaves a long list of friends who will forever miss him. Ben was also anticipating his biggest blessing of all – a sweet new baby, due this October.
Like the song says, “I believe them when they say you are in a better place. You had a wild side, but you had amazing grace”.
Services honoring Ben’s life will be held on Sunday, May 15, 2022, at Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd, Amarillo, TX at 2:00 PM.
