In 2007, the Westfall family moved to Athens so the children could grow up near family and his Dad could coach and teach for the Athens School District.
Tucker loved hunting and fishing and was always trying to up Dad and his brother on bagging the biggest buck or catching the largest fish. Tucker had a passion for sports playing high school football, wrestling and baseball. At his eighth grade graduation, he said his goals in life were to get married and play for the NFL. He loved watching movies over and over again and would recite the script before the actor would say them. Tucker was a very kind, gentle young man that loved spending time with his friends attending fire pit parties, prom parties, or just hanging out. He always looked forward to the Kayak fishing trips with his Uncle Tom. He will be remembered by many as a very caring person. Tucker loved life and will be so missed by his family and friends.
