Mr. Grady “Buck” Lamar Buckner, age 68, of Carrollton, Georgia, passed away Thursday, November 7, 2019. He was born August 25, 1951 in Austell, Georgia. Buck was a hard worker and loved his family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Hugh Grady Buckner and Frances Carol (Raper) Jones; and three sisters, Jackie Johnson, Sherry Leonard and Robin Buckner.

I remember many things about my Uncle Lamar,

As a child at family gatherings he was a never ending source of entertainment, his humor was contagious and he shared it often. As a child he affectionately nick named me Spider-man after my adoration for the comic hero.

He was an avid wrestling fan, and I would say was the one that got me into pro-wrestling as a child, I remember many talks we had about 'who would beat who' and so on, also the seemingly endless collection of taped wrestling paper-views that he allowed me to borrow.

I remember his office, and his collections of, well everything imaginable. There were unopened classic action figures, pez dispensers; you name it, he probably had it!

I remember him being a source of strength for my Mother, and the family as a whole, someone that could always be relied upon; Mom always said outside of her Daddy, Uncle Lamar was the hardest working man she ever knew.

Most of all, I remember him being a good man.

Aunt Caren, Jason, Shane and Amanda we are all thinking of you.

With Love,

The Leonard's in Australia

Lamar was a pillar of family strength from the time we met back in 1981. He walked his sister down the aisle and performed many acts for the family. I hope he is in a better place now and for eternity. He was a good man.

Caren, Jason, Shane and Amanda, may the lord give you strength to handle the funeral today and the coming events.

Caren the video was beautiful and I am sure Lamar would be proud.

Everyone is in our prayers.

Love to all, Jerry & Jacqueline Leonard
