My brother, Andy Tucker, has always been a role model to me since I was a young boy. He always sang my praises from the time I was 7 years old in sleep away summer camp we both attended in North Belgrade, Maine. This was an all boys camp that focused on sports mainly and outdoor activities such as hiking and boating. So much of the skills we learned as young boys and athletes developed at this camp. Camp was where we proved ourselves as young men and as champions. I believe that I developed self confidence and a tremendous belief and faith in myself because of my brother and the way he carried me along with him during our childhood, especially at summer camp. He always kept watch over me in a way where down deep, I knew I could not fail. In high school, Andy set a great example for me and I learned a great deal from him. He taught me sportsmanship, hard work, mental toughness, compassion and that being a good student was very important. I had a tough time when Andy left high school for Dartmouth College in 1986 but I was able to persevere and make a name for myself in academics and sports from high school thru college because of the foundation I developed from my brother’s guidance. Its no surprise that he has dedicated his life to helping patients at Candler Medical Center in Savannah, Georgia. He has also risked his own life every day to treat patients during the Covid pandemic. It is an honor to nominate my brother, Dr. Andy Tucker.
