Denzel Hassan Tucker

August 24, 2023

Denzel Hassan Tucker, 24, passed away on August 14, 2023, after a tragic car accident. Denzel was born October 15, 1998, in Kambia, Rosinnoh Village of Sierra Leone, Africa. Private family services have been held, and a celebration of life on his birthday October 15 is planned, with time and location pending.

Denzel was adopted by Dawn and Tim Tucker in 2003 and came to live with his new family in Moyie Springs. Denzel attended McCormick School for nine years and graduated from eighth grade in 2013. He then attended Bonners Ferry High School, and graduated from Lake Pend Oreille High School in 2018.

After school Denzel acquired a job in Seattle due to striking up a conversation with a stranger on a plane ride to Hawaii to visit his grandmother. Denzel then spent the next four years living on and off in Seattle, washing windows commercially and landscaping. He had just recently enrolled in college classes at North Idaho College.

Denzel had the gift of gab, he could strike up a conversation with anyone about anything, for any length of time! He enjoyed being active and loved sports, especially basketball and shredding the slopes on his snowboard. He loved being outside in nature where he was finding peace in his meditative surroundings while also spending time with friends and family.

He is greatly missed by his eleven siblings, parents, and extended family.
