Tucker was born to Doran Bruington and Tammy (Gerhardt) Bruington-Zearley on May 14, 1997.  He was raised and educated in Mandan, ND, graduating from Mandan High School in 2016.


From the young age of 4, Tucker was an avid hockey player, once he put his goalie pads on, he was forever a goalie.  There are many broken items and sheetrock holes from all of his hockey practicing in the house.  Golfing was also a favorite sport of his, and proudly he had 3 hole-in-ones!  Tucker enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing video games, listening to all kinds of music, and being on the river.  Tucker loved all animals, especially his sidekick, Kleo Kitty. 


Tucker always enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.  He was a great jokester and his jubilant laugh, big smile, and warm hugs that will be greatly missed by many!


Tucker will be deeply missed by his parents, Tammy (Cliff) Bruington-Zearley and Doran Bruington; sister, Austyn Bruington and special friend, Jon Dobier; Tucker’s special friend, Ashlynn Munyer; grandparents, Lorraine Gerhardt, and Herbert and Valentina Bruington; step-grandmother, Violet Zearley; uncles, Jeff Gerhardt and Delton Bruington; aunts, Tonda (Byron) Berger and Lanae Bruington; numerous cousins; and many friends.


He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Stan Gerhardt; great-grandparents, George and Ruby Bruington; and step-grandfather, Miner Zearley.
