I have so many wonderful memories of Buck. He was like a second dad to me growing up and granddad to my daughter. I don't believe he ever met a stranger . He was always willing to help lend a hand wherever you needed him. He loved to bring "his girls" flowers . He always made you smile and was always looking out for you. I know he loved his family with all his heart, and loved spending time with them, especially his grandchildren. He was definitely one in a million. I will miss him dearly, but will remember all the wonderful times we shared and everything he taught me.

Don't catch all the fish up there Buck!
