Rucks, born on January 21, 1937, in Truman, Minnesota, and who passed away on February 6, 2024. Known for his dedication, loyalty, and support, Jim was a trusted friend to those who had the privilege of knowing him. He was a devoted family man, who along with his wife, were successful business owners of Rucks Cabinets & Doors from 1971 to 2006. As a longtime resident of Lake Havasu City since 1971, he was a proud member of the Mount Olive Lutheran Church, the London Bridge Rotary, and the Jaycees. His loyalty and support were unwavering, and his love for his family was the cornerstone of his life. A man of varied interests, Jim enjoyed golfing, boating, square dancing, and traveling across the country in their RV. Jim was a collector of everything eagles and enjoyed sharing a drink with family and friends. Jim is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, DeLores; daughters, Dawn (Matt) Rossman and Robin (Criss) Morgan; granddaughters, Amanda and Sarah (Aaron); great-grandson, Conrad, who is on the way; sisters, Mary Ann (Ron), Myrna (Greg), and Kris (Mark).
