Psalm 46:1-3. God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam the mountains quake with their surging.

Emanuel Lackey was born on November 26, 1929 to the late Jacob Holberth & Ella Belle “Patsy” Lackey in Baltimore City, Maryland. He entered into eternal rest Monday, September 7, 2020, at the Gordon Hospice House, following declining health.

After his mother passed at an early age he was raised by his late great-aunt Mollie Lackey (Revere)Tuck. When he lived with Mollie Tuck, he acquired the last name Tuck and was fondly called “Dag”. After the death of his aunt Mollie, Mollie’s children, the late, Viola “Prin” Tuck (Ervin) Blackwell and Elizabeth “Sis” Tuck (Robert) Chambers continued to raise “Dag”, as their sibling. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Mallie and Mammie Houpe Lackey; a grandson, Roderick “Roddy” Davis; a nephew, William “Chico” Blackwell, Jr. and a nephew-in-law, Woodrow Boney

Dag retired from the Iredell-Statesville School System after many years as a dedicated custodian, He was known throughout the community as a gentle soft spoken spirit. His taste for fine cars and attire was exquisite. He provided a social place for the black community to enjoy, music, spirits and good times. He lived a long life with no regrets.

Emanuel’s lineage with the late Nellie Mozer Davis are, Aaron Emanuel Davis aka Ameen Abdullah Rasool and Nelda Lee Davis both of Statesville; grandchildren, Natasha Unee’ (Sammy) Lowe, Aprile Nichole Strickland, Ranelle Nashay Davis and Al-hajj Malik Sherrill, all of Statesville; great-grandchildren, Nicklaus Javon Lowe, Nekohl Emon Lowe, Ronekia Shavon Parks, A’meiyon Je’hahj Sherrill, Dakhia Unae Rabess and Derrick Lamont Murdock III all of Statesville; nieces, Margaret Louise Blackwell Boney, Janice Patricia (Author) Blackwell Word, Gwendolyn Tammy (Lawrence) Blackwell Zantt Sr all of Baltimore, MD; nephews, James Emanuel “Jimmie” Blackwell and Alfred Lee “Chuckie” Blackwell both of Baltimore, MD; and a host of great nephews, great nieces, cousins, other family members and special friends.

Dag will be missed by many here at his earthly home; but he is now rejoicing in the arms of Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ when he exchanged labor for reward in the Master’s Kingdom.

Aaron and Nelda I am sorry for your loss. Your dad was a haven for my late dad and many others. Sending my heartfelt condolences. May you find comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father cares for you and will comfort you during this time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4; 2Thessalonians 2:16,17) Jesus gave us a wonderful hope that we may see our loved ones again when he said at John 5:28,29 that there will be a resurrection. May we keep our eyes on the promises of our Heavenly Father who promised that one day no one will say I am sick, (Isaiah 33:24) and that all our pain, sorrow and even death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) Many prayers are with you and the family. May you have peace .
