It has been my privilege to know Buck and Barbara for many years. Their example of married love has been an inspiration. Their example of loving parents to Stuart, Jana, and Tonya has provided a model for all. I hope the sweet memories of life with Buck will bring a measure of comfort to Barbara, to Stuart, Jana, and Tonya and to all their families and friends. Many prayers and much love are winging their way to you.

Barbara, Marsha and I are so sorry for your loss. The last time I saw Buck was at the Shriner's meeting. He was sitting in his favorite spot. Barbara, We know you have the support of your family, but if Marsha and I can help you in any way please let us know. May God give You and your Family the strength during this difficult time.

I have known Buck and Barbara since high school days. Their marriage has always served as a beautiful example of what a marriage is. My husband and I send condolences to Barbara and all the family. Rest In Peace, Buck.

I have know Buck for many years and he was one of the nicest kindest friends. I had the pleasure of working with him for many years and got to know his family. We always looked forward to him bringing Barbara’s Christmas tray of “goodies”. Just had a phone visit about a week or ten days ago. Will miss talking with him.
