Tucker Rudolph Kern, 31, of Mesa, Arizona passed away on May 2, 2022. He is survived by his son Kiedis Kern, his mother Steffi Jo Parachou and her husband George, his father Karl Kern, his sister Ambre Phillips, and her husband Ryan along with their children Owen and Arya, and his half-brother Dustin Wolff, along with his children Austin and Ashley, his grandmother Janice Hood, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Tucker had a quick wit and fine sense of humor, people felt good to be around him. He had a low-key way of bringing laughter into everyday situations. He loved his family and friends and loved to make them smile, especially his son, Kiedis. Being a dad was his pride and joy; it was heartwarming to see how selfless and committed he was to being the best dad he could be.
Tucker grew up playful, happy, and always talking and sharing his thoughts on how things worked. He was respectful of others regardless of age, especially if they were having life problems. He got along with everyone and had a knack for making them feel good about themselves.
Tucker was most comfortable with a simple life and was proud that he owned his own home. Most of his career was focused around KRN Aviation Services, where he had a great talent for customer satisfaction and even difficult customers thought highly of him. He took pride in helping them find the exact parts they needed, even when they didn’t know for sure what to ask for. When his career took him to Chandler Aviation Inc, he quickly made new friends, as he always did, and helped them and their customers with the same care and dedication as always.
In his private life, Tucker had a talent for on-line gaming and was known as “MagicTuckTuck” in his gaming circles. He was followed by many, and he would stream and teach others how to get better at gaming. This was typical of how he was with all his relationships; he loved to teach and share his knowledge. He also spent time attending different churches and recently became baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on May 15th, 2021.
Tucker leaves a legacy of love and laughter that flowed from his own special personality. He will be missed by all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to https://www.shatterproof.org/nationalmemorial/tucker-kern?thankyou.
