George Tucker, Texas REALTORS® chairman in 1988, passed away on December 19. During his career, he served as San Antonio Board of REALTORS® president in 1982 and NAR regional vice president for Region 10.

Tucker began working in real estate after retiring from the U.S. Air Force, where he earned the rank of chief master sergeant. The Universal City resident was active in various civic and charitable organizations.

“George Tucker was an exemplary leader at all three levels of the REALTOR® organization,” says Texas REALTORS® CEO Travis Kessler. “During his leadership positions with Texas REALTORS®, he played a key role in formulating a legislative agenda that dealt with standardized forms and reinforcing homestead law provisions, as well as relocating our headquarters in Austin to 12th Street and San Jacinto Boulevard. Leaders like George Tucker had the vision to address issues that created a business environment that we still benefit from today.”
