I worked with both Buck and Betty at Woodland Golf Course. What a dynamic couple. Buck had such a mild manner and great sense of humor. I’m so very sorry for your loss, Mark. Kindest regards, Alissa

As I remember Uncle Buck,I remember his cordially gentle manner. When he said he would be at our parents home,he was there. At times,he would just stop by to check on them. His attire was always groomed and handsome. He seemed to know everyone. I had spoken with him over the phone Thursday before his passing. Bless his heart for him gentle kind ways. Joanna Chapman
