Renowned bridge player dies at 80
William (Bill) Tucker, who repeatedly represented Bermuda in international bridge competitions, has died at the age of 80.
Mr Tucker was a fixture on the Bermuda bridge scene, winning several competitions here and overseas.
Frequent teammate Alan Douglas said: “Bill was a great player. He was a prolific winner. He won at every level that he played at. He loved bridge and was always eager to give his knowledge to any person who asked for it or even didn’t ask for it.”
Away from the card table, he described Mr Tucker as a great person and an avid sports fan.
The Royal Gazette bridge columnist David Ezekiel wrote: “Bill was one of the top players at the [Bermuda Bridge Club] for many years and was as knowledgeable on bridge odds and technique as anyone at the club, and as a result he won a number of club championships.”
Mr Tucker is survived by his daughters, Sheena and Davina, and his grandchildren.
