Irving (“Ibby”) Tuck

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
94, of Danvers, formerly of Deerfield Beach Florida, native of Revere and Peabody, died peacefully on March 10, 2022. He was a loving husband and devoted grandfather (“Grandpa”), great-grandfather (“Raba”), and great-great grandfather. He was a hard worker and skilled golfer. Ibby loved unconditionally, he was dedicated to his family, and he received all their love in return.
Ibby was born and raised in Chelsea, son of the late Henry and Sadie Tuck. He and his wife, Sunny, along with their two children, lived in Revere before moving to Peabody. Ibby served honorably in the Army during World War II after which he worked with his father as a cutter in the garment industry. His home in Revere became a mainstay for his family for generations, so much so that even some of his great-grandchildren felt like that part of the beach was “their beach.” One of the highlights of his time in Peabody was having his grandchildren sleep over all the time when they were kids.

He leaves behind his wife of 72 Years, Sonya (“Sunny”), his children, Shelley Baker and the late Stephen Baker of Lynnfield and Barbara and Dennis Tuck of Danvers; His beloved grandchildren, Jill and Marc Baker, Allison and James Donahue, Kim and Matthew Donahue, Stefanie Tuck, and Jaclyn and James Capriccio; Nine great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his 3 siblings, Mildred Graff, Harvey Tuck, and Maynard Tuck. Ibby had a strong heart and a strong will to live. He died one month shy of his 95th birthday and ten days shy of his 73rd wedding anniversary.
Ibby’s family is grateful for the compassionate care he received for the past month from the staff and nurses at both Chelsea Jewish Lifecare and Care Dimensions.
