I honestly don’t have a memory of this man that wasn’t a good one! He was harder than a coffin nail but had an attitude that could make ANYBODY lose their self in laughter! One of the most admirable men I’ve had the pleasure of calling my family. He will be missed, greatly! Gone from our hands and eyes, but forever in our hearts and minds!

Such a wonderful guy with an even bigger heart. He liked to seem gruff, but you could see he was such a big lovable guy. He loved his country, he loved his wife, he loved his children and grand children, and family and he loved his Harley. Friendships were important to him that he didn't take lightly. Happy riding up there in Heaven Dave Bucher. God must have had an important mission up there for you to have been taken so suddenly. RIP. You will be missed by many.
