After nearly four decades of service, Ralph ‘Tucker’ August calls it a day

January 18, 2011

REYNOLDSVILLE — After Feb. 4, Ralph August will no longer be a member of the Reynoldsville police department.

It will be the first time in 39 years that he will not be on the force.

August, known as “Tucker” to most people, is set to retire. He has been the police chief since 1987, and an officer in the borough since 1972. During the past four decades, August has, in most respects, been living out his dream.

His parents owned a restaurant in town. They retired to Florida, anticipating young Tucker to take over the family business.
