I got to know Bucky when I was growing up in Reliance, he was my hero. He use to let me ride in his dump truck and pick me up when I was walking to school in Middletown. Always a kind word and a smile. He was certainly a man among men, and someone I was proud to know. He will forever live in my memory and will always be my hero. Thank You God for letting me know R.L. Henry, Bless and be with his family, and help me to be as good a person as he was.....Bless You Sir....Your Friend.....Roy "Skeeter" Reed
