I remember sitting on the deck with you having morning coffee before everyone else woke up. I also remember cocktail hour. You will be missed immensely.

Always a bright light to a day, Buck was very special to me. The world has lost a good man, but he left a spot in many, many hearts.
Tim Donovan left a message on January 8, 2018:
Buck, can't believe you are gone. Last night I thought about what a perfect model you were for the rest of us. You impacted so many people so positively by your example. Your quick smile that was usually followed by words of wisdom will be greatly missed! Good by, Uncle Buck! See you at the fishing hole! Leave me some.

Charlotte & Buck were always laughing and joking. I remember that after we had signed contracts to purchase our new homes at Lake Frederick, Buck had obtained the emails of his new-to-be neighbors. One evening we received an email from him introducing himself to us. On our first visit to the design center, we went to dinner together afterward to get acquainted. Before our new homes were ready, we visited each other in our previous homes and became friends. Charlotte would call Cookie and say, "this is lot 29 calling lot 26". Charlotte probably grabbed Buck in heaven and tried to teach him to line dance! They are probably laughing now. Buck was a great friend and I will miss him for our front porch chats in the summer. Stay strong Cookie for his love will never leave you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Charlotteand Buck always had many laughs and jokes going on between them. i still remember the day Buck called us right after we purchased our homes at Shenandoah. He asked if we were going to be neighbors. After our first visit to the design center, we all had dinner together. That was followed by visits back an forth in our previous homes and the beginning of a lasting friendship. I can inagine Charlotte welcoming him to heaven and trying to get him to line dance and laughing. Goodby my friend and have ever lasting peace.

Although I only spoke to Buck a handful of times over the years, I knew him to be a loving husband and father through the eyes of his devoted wife Cookie. I'm so sorry for your loss sweet friend. ❤

Bob Thompson left a message on January 6, 2018:
Buck and I first met in about 1956 when we were in high school. I was 3 years older and many inches shorter. I remember fondly the friendly Bridge games and very competitive Ping Pong matches. Later, after I relocated to Atlanta, I remember visiting Buck and Cookie at Fort Gordon and with my wife Ded at Fort Monroe. We were shocked and saddened to learn of Buck’s passing and want to send our sincere condolences to Cookie and the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Jack Stratford left a message on January 6, 2018:
I served with Buck on the joint staff from 87-90 and he was one of the most respected contingency planners on the entire joint staff. He combined his easy-going nature, recognized technical expertise, and unmatched organizational skills to contribute to many of our countries most important missions. I’m only sorry that I lost track of him after we both left the joint staff but he’ll always be one of those special officers that I had the opportunity to work with. Blessings to all of his family and friends who have lost an exceptional husband, dad, and friend.
Rich Hebner left a message on January 6, 2018:
Buck was one of my best friends. I have such great memories of all the things we did together, the trip to the national parks, poker, fishing at the lake, always beating Cookie and Bonnie at pinochle just to name a few. Keep smiling my friend

I've known Buck about 11 years and he was a remarkable leader and friend. He would always help if needed. He led the community's Veterans Club with outstanding enthusiasm and dedication. As a friend, there was none better. He would give you the shirt off his back. He will be and is truly missed. God bless Cookie and family.
