WAPPAPELLO - The oldest park ranger in the Army Corps of Engineers' St. Louis District is bringing his career to a close despite the reluctance of co-workers who don't want to see him go.
Tucker's association with Wappapello started long before his work there. He was a 9-year-old boy in 1941 when he attended the dedication of Wappapello Dam on a hot July day.
Colleagues and others who know Tucker praise his hard work, dedication and positive attitude.
