Obituary for Charles Rucker

Charles Rucker
Mr. Charles Edward Rucker of Newport, Arkansas, departed this life on October 7, 2017, at the age of 76. He was born September 2, 1941, the son of Mr. Therry Rucker, Sr., and Madie (Tidwell) Rucker.
Mr. Rucker was educated in Arkansas and continued to further pursue his education in St. Louis, Missouri; there he attended and received several degrees from Browns Business College. Charles was employed with Meletio Seafood Company of St. Louis, Missouri; later he became the proprietor of C&C Seafoods. Charles received Christ at an early age. While making St. Louis his home, Holy Trinity Catholic Church became his home church, where he served faithfully, and his community wholeheartedly. The love Charles had for God, his family and church, showed on him.
Mr. Rucker was very involved in his community. He served as a member of the Catholic Charities, The Urban League Council of St. Louis, Missouri, Member of the Archdioceses Development Appeal Association, Neighborhood Community Watch Association, and the Neighborhood Patrol Watch.
Mr. Rucker moved to Newport, Arkansas, in 1997, and began working at Sav-A-Lot Food Store as the butcher, and later worked 15 years at Fred’s Dollar Store. For the past 15 years, Charles became a faithful member of God’s House of Prayer, under the leadership of Pastor Therman Walker until his untimely passing. Mr. Rucker served as a Deacon and loved it!
Charles was a family man, and always wore that big smile and showed love continuously. He loved the outdoors, family cookouts, fishing, gardening, and bird watching from his porch. Hummingbirds were his favorite. Mr. Rucker will truly be missed by so many.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his grandparents, Florence Rowland and Curtis “Kirk” Rucker; one step-son, Charles Edward Roberts; two brothers, Roy Lee Rucker and Therry Rucker, Jr.; and one granddaughter, Julia Rucker.
Mr. Rucker is survived by his caring and loving wife of 20 years, Brenda (Clark) Rucker; two sons, Edward C.
