Grand Junction businessman dies in accident
The family of a 37-year-old Grand Junction business owner who died suddenly last weekend described him as being full of love and life.
Brent Tuck, founder, president and chief executive officer of Tuck Communication Services Inc., died Sept. 1 in a skateboarding accident outside his family’s Grand Junction home.
“He instilled an incredible amount of love in every one of us and taught us the true nature of loving and living life to the fullest,” his family wrote in an obituary.
Good-humored, fun-loving and determined are words that spring to mind while looking at his Facebook page.
“I find that true happiness and success in life comes to you naturally by simply working hard, doing the right thing and helping others whenever possible,” Tuck wrote.
He married his wife, Donna Tuck, in 1999 and the couple had four children, Jeremy, 13, Hannah, 11, Adam, 8, and Bethany, 7.
Tuck, who grew up in Palm Springs, Calif., started his business in Steamboat Springs in 2003, then expanded the telecommunications services company to most of western Colorado. The company was headquartered in Grand Junction.
Services are scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary.
