Former Florida House Speaker Donald L. Tucker passes

Donald L. Tucker

Today we honor Florida’s former Speaker of the House, Donald L. Tucker – first elected in 1966 representing Leon, Franklin and Wakulla counties, reelected five times, and the only Speaker of the Florida House to serve two consecutive terms.

According to his thoughtful obituary: “Known in equal parts for his intellect and wit, Donald was also a natural raconteur. He leaves us with the rich memories of his inquisitive childhood adventures, vast political history, and abiding love for his family and community.”

A public celebration will be held Friday, Oct. 4, at 3PM at the civic center which bears his name.
