January 9, 2009 - We honor the 60th Wedding Anniversary of Tommy & LaVerne Tucker

Every January 9Th, the standing joke between Robin Tucker, now broker/officer of Tommy Tucker Realty Co. with his parents, Tommy and LaVerne Tucker, was a quick happy birthday send off. From 1969-1974, Richard Nixon served as President of the United States.

But, really, January 9Th had much more significance than the birthday of our 37Th President of the United States.

It was January 9, 1949. Tommy and LaVerne Tucker were married in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They had met on a blind date, while both were students at Coe College. Today, January 9, 2009, Tommy and LaVerne Tucker celebrate their 60Th wedding anniversary. They will celebrate the event with a trip to Hawaii this month.

In 1958, Tommy founded Tommy Tucker Realty Co. Tommy Tucker Realty Co. celebrated its 50Th anniversary as a company, last year. Tommy entered the real estate profession in 1955.

LaVerne retired from real estate at the end of 2007.

Tommy Tucker has been recognized by the Cedar Rapids Association of Realtors (CRAAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) as a REALTOR® Emeritus. He is a past president of the CRAAR and the Iowa Association of Realtors. He also served as a national vice president of NAR.

The Iowa Realtor Foundation offers the I.L. "Tommy" Tucker Scholarship. Mr. Tucker, along with other Realtors, help establish the University of Northern Iowa Real Estate Education Program.

Today, we sincerely wish our founder, Tommy Tucker, and his wife, a Happy 60Th Wedding Anniversary. Congratulations Dad & Mom! Robin Tucker

Tommy Tucker Realty Co.
