Joe Ben also know a Wormy in his younger days. Was good friend in school and as a neighbor. He was best man at my wedding in 1962. Will always have good thoughts of him as long as I live.

Joe Ben Tucker and his family have had such an enormous influence on so many people. About three times a year, Joe Ben and Harold Bandy (from Nortonville), would pull into our driveway in Beaver Dam to pick up my dad, on the way to Louisville for a Funeral Directors Association of KY meeting.

Joe Ben will be sorely missed. My Mom always thought highly of Joe Ben. She knew him from when he was a teen. He always brought a smile to my Mom's face. I can't say enough about this great man, I thought highly of him as well He and Tucker's have helped my family on many occasions when we suffered a loss. His shoes will be tough to fill.

I will always treasure the years I spent at Commonwealth Insurance and working directly with the KFDBA, Joe Ben, Milton Stoess, and John Kerr. Joe Ben was a class act, a perfect gentleman, and stellar businessman. I admired his business savvy and his care for his families and the many associations on which he served. I consider it a privilege to have known Joe Ben and I wish the family peace and good tidings. God's blessings on all of you.

I often told Joe Ben that he was one of the finest that Central City, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, & the USA had to offer. Of course, being Joe Ben, he scoffed at this! But I meant it. He treated everyone as if they were important, because to him you were. I know that if we could all learn to treat people as well as Joe Ben did, that this country would be in a much better place.

I considered him
