Lilly, sincere regrets to you and the family on your loss of Buck. I`ve known you both for many years, first knowing Buck when he was a standout Center for the Rogers Mounties football team in 1950, his senior year. and before.
Then, Buck will also be remembered as one of the many Rogers young men. including my buds Rex and Dale Bland, that served in Korea with the Rogers National Guard, circa early 1950`s. He joins the many members that are now deceased. They and Buck will be/are sorely missed. Gene
