TUCKER--Near Jeffersontown KY., May 23, 1875 Brother Hazael Tucker. His death
was sudden and unexpected. Retiring for rest at night in seeming good health,
ere midnight came he had fallen asleep in Jesus. Brother Tucker was born in
Spencer County, Ky, May 16, 1806. He was married to Miss Nancy J. Cooper
January 5, 1837, and in the year 1839 moved to the vicinity of Jeffersontown,
Ky., where he resided until his death. He dated his conversion back to about
the year 1833, under the ministry of Rev. Wm. Stout, but made no profession of
faith in Jesus till June, 1864, when he was baptized by Rev. W. E. Powers,
uniting with the Jeffersontown Baptist Church. He was elected deacon of the
church October 1864, in which office he was faithful and exemplary. Brother
Tucker leaves a wife, six sons, three daughters-in-law, several grandchildren,
two brothers, an aged sister, and other relatives and friends whose hearts are
bowed in sorrow by his death. Possessed of good business qualities, he
gathered a good property, and many pecuniary trusts were committed to him,
which he kept with unswerving fidelity. He was a man o' pure purpose, tender
sympathy, and great prudence. These good qualities of mind and heart well
fitted him to be a counselor, comforter, and peacemaker. Many will cherish
glad memories of his usefulness in these relations. As a Christian, he was
humble and unobtrusive, and it was often said, "I wish I was as good a
Christian as Brother Tucker." He was ardently attached to the members of the
church, and they feel they have lost a loving friend and brother. His pastor
was ever the recipient of his warmest sympathies and encouragement. He was
devoted to his family, and unwearied in his efforts to promote their
interests. He had an especial solicitude for their spiritual welfare. The
large congregation, which gathered at the funeral service, attested the high
esteem in which he was held. He trusted in the "covenant ordered in all
things and sure," and we believe "knows and feels what it is to be there,"
where are pleasures forevermore. May the loving Savior comfort the hearts of
the bereaved wife and sons, and grant them the joyful hope that when this life
is over, they shall meet the loved one where parting is unknown. W.E.W.
