William C. "Bill" Tuecke, 78, passed away peacefully on Easter Sunday surrounded by his family.

A celebration of life was held on Saturday, April 7, at Veritas Church, Cedar Rapids. Visitation was before services and lunch immediately following.

Bill was born on Dec. 2, 1939, the son of Carl and Ruth (Corson) Tuecke in rural Clayton County, in a log cabin, which still stands today.

On Aug. 19, 1961, he was united in marriage to Mary Becker. Bill’s father taught him the electrical trade and later he became a member of IBEW Local 405, working for ESCO for many years. During retirement, he volunteered his time doing electrical work with “Old Farts Electric,” including restoring over 200 flooded homes. Bill was an artist, delighting his family with his talent. He enjoyed canoeing, kayaking, camping and spending time with his grandchildren. In 1999, Bill was diagnosed with throat cancer and the direction of his life changed. Formerly known as “Wild Bill,” he then desired to make the name of the Lord known. Bill was grateful for the love of God in the face of Christ Jesus.

Those left to cherish his legacy include his wife of 56 years, Mary; his brother, Daniel; his daughter, Kari (Ron) Horak; sons, Scott (Angie) and Andrew (Beth); 19 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his brother, John; and son, Mark.
