Carl Thomas "Tommy" Stuckey Obituary

Carl Thomas "Tommy" Stuckey, a beloved member of the Crossett community and formerly of North Little Rock, passed away on Tuesday, October 31, 2023, in El Dorado, Arkansas, at the age of 82. Tommy was born on June 30, 1941. His journey in life was marked by a commitment to duty and service to his country. He graduated from North Little Rock High School in 1959 and subsequently dedicated six years of his life to the United States Marine Corps, where he served honorably and with unwavering dedication.

After his military service, Tommy returned to his Arkansas roots and served his community as a police officer in North Little Rock for seven years followed by several years working for Ram Fab Industries, in Crossett.  Later, he found a new calling in sales, working as an advertising salesman for the Ashley News Observer for fifteen years, where he became a beloved and familiar face in the community.

Beyond his professional life, Tommy had a passion for the outdoors, particularly hunting and fishing. He cherished the moments spent in nature, pursuing his favorite pastimes. He was known for his jovial and humorous spirit, always ready with a joke to brighten someone's day. Tommy had a remarkable ability to make people laugh and feel at ease in his presence.

What truly set Tommy apart was his immense love for his family and friends. He held a special place in his heart for those he cared about, and his generosity and caring nature knew no bounds. He remained young at heart, cherishing every moment with the people he loved. His friends will remember his joy for life and the deep appreciation he had for simple pleasures.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Evelyn Marie Young Stuckey; his daughter, Darla Stuckey; and one son, Ritchie Thomas Stuckey.

He leaves behind one son, Scott Anthony “Moe” Stuckey (Mandy) of Sherwood, AR; one sister, Donna Phillips of Conway, AR; and five grandchildren, Olivia and Owen Stuckey, Brittney Ledbetter (Mac), Ritchie Thomas Stuckey, Jr., and Nicholas Stuckey (Tessa); along with a daughter-in-law, Darby Stuckey; three great-grandchildren; and special friends, Tanya and Marc Beasley.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, November 4th, at Medders Funeral Home, 1564 Hwy 52 W, in Crossett, with Bro. Mike Lefler, officiating.

Visitation will be from 11:00-11:30 a.m., Saturday, prior to the service.
