Buck was a lifelong resident of St. Bernard Parish where he proudly served his country during the Korean War and was a member of the VFW. He enjoyed a long career as a carpenter and was a longtime member of the Carpenters Local Union 1846. He took early retirement in 1982 from Kaiser Aluminum after 30+ years of service. His fondness of woodworking was surpassed only by the love for his grandchildren. Buck will always be remembered for his loyalty and dedication to his family, his loving spirit, his laughter, and spoiling the grandchildren. He was a wonderful example of what it means to care for others and will be deeply missed by us all.
