Charles graduated from Burlington High School with the Class of 1959. He then obtained his Pharmacy Degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. He worked as a pharmacist for a few years in Kansas City while attending dental school and obtained his DDS degree at UMKC in Kansas City. On July 16, 1960, he was united in marriage to Jane Ann Johnson in Burlington. After practicing dentistry in Oklahoma City for a year, they moved to Alva in 1971 where he opened his dental practice. He celebrated his 50th year of dentistry and had always said he would retire when he stopped liking what he was doing. He was blessed with a wonderful staff, Donna White, Rita Peterson, Darla O’Bleness, Ashley Nickel and Ashli Snow, who he adored and considered family. He was an active member of the Alva First Baptist Church where he served as Deacon and sang in the choir. He will be smiling in heaven when he hears his friends singing at his funeral. He enjoyed skiing, golfing, hunting, and training his bird dogs. He especially enjoyed spending time with family, his grandchildren Carson Helms of Scottsdale, Taylor Tucker of Boston, Quincy Robinson and husband Tanner of Oklahoma City, Chantz Tucker and wife Maddie of Byron, Ashley Tucker of Dacoma, and Addi Helms of Austin and his new great grandson, Arthur Tucker of Byron. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by one son, Monte John Tucker. Charles is survived by his wife, Jane, of Alva; one son, Tony Tucker of Cherokee; one daughter, Darla Helms and husband, Roger, of Scottsdale, Arizona; one brother, David Tucker and wife, Jody, of Bartlesville; and two sisters, Priscilla Smith of McPherson, Kansas, and Melinda Gisham of Eldorado, Kansas.
