Gene Stuckey Obituary

Francis Eugene “Gene” Stuckey, age 80, passed away peacefully at his son’s home in Bucyrus, Ohio on Tuesday morning, March 27, 2018. Born August 30, 1937 in Muncie, Indiana, he was the son of the late Dan and Martha (Heather) Stuckey.
He was a graduate of Carmel High School.

Gene was a lifelong farmer. For over 40 years, he was the owner and operator of Stuckey Farms located near Sheridan on the Boone / Hamilton County line. Between his vegetable plots, the wonderfully kept orchard, and the farm market, he provided a much needed and appreciated service to the residents of Sheridan, and the surrounding communities, by providing them with farm fresh produce, year after year, without fail.

Helping and caring for others was a guiding principle throughout his life. During the 80’s and 90’s, Gene worked on multiple short term mission trips with CSI, building homes and schools. He attended Heartland Church.

Gene is survived by the love of his life, Rosalyn Ann (Shoemaker) Stuckey. She and Gene were married on January 8, 1961. He is also survived by his 2 sons, Steven E. Stuckey (Diana) of Sheridan, and Kent A. Stuckey (Laura) of Bucyrus, Ohio; 6 grandchildren, Ben Stuckey, Zach Stuckey (Kelsey), and Ethan Stuckey (Hanna) all of Bucyrus, Ohio, Alicia Stuckey of Noblesville, Kristie Stuckey of Fairfax, Iowa, and Heather Correll (Travis) of Sheridan; 2 great granddaughters, Waylynn Stuckey and Mayla Stuckey; 1 great grandson, Haydin Correll; and 1 great grandchild on the way; and by his sister, Elanor Moffitt of Carmel.

Services will be held at 2:00 PM on Friday, March 30, 3018 at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 Eat 10th Street, Sheridan, Indiana, with visitation from 10:00 AM until the time of service.

Burial will follow at Mts. Runn Cemetery in rural Boone County.
