Tucker, GA — Here are some of the latest stories from the Tucker Observer, Decaturish.com’s new community news website covering Tucker, Stone Mountain and Clarkston.

People in town often talk about The Tucker Way. It’s the genteel manner in which neighbors greet each other; the excited chit-chat at the start of a packed City Council meeting; the generosity extended to strangers. A community builder, a businessman and friend, Tucker City Councilmember William “Bill” Corey Rosenfeld, Sr. personified The Tucker Way.

Rosenfeld, 77, died recently from a previously undetected medical condition after a tough battle with COVID-19.

He was born in Norfolk, Va., and attended Guilford College. As a young adult, he landed in Jacksonville, N.C., first as a guitar player in a rock band and later as a music promoter. North Carolina is also where he began his career as a paramedic, which he continued upon moving to metro Atlanta.
