Buck will be remembered as one who gave all to his community. My late husband and I met Buck before Gower Estates was annexed into the city. When it became part of the city, Buck came by one day in a firetruck and said he had just given a speeding ticket to someone. I could only imagine being pulled over by a firetruck. Mike (late husband) served on the Civil Service Commission and Buck would stop by the office or home to talk for a few minutes and Mike said that if more police recruits had the integrity of Buck, the city would be much better off. He will be missed. How wonderful that we serve a Risen Lord that gave us the promise of eternal life.

I first met Buck with my wife at the Confederate Museum.  He greeted us with a warm smile and welcomed us to the Museum.  He was such a Southern Gentleman and was very friendly and open.  He will be missed.  Good bless him.

Though late, I was greatly saddened to learn of the passing of this dear friend. Buck was not only the consummate Southern Gentleman, he also represented the very best in Law Enforcement. I am a better man for having known this rare individual. God bless you,Buck, and your loving family.

John and I  enjoyed many Saturdays working with Buck at the Confederate Museum.  He was such a pleasant man, dedicated to the things he loved, family, friends, his Lord, church and the SCV, etc.  Buck never changed, a perfect gentleman.   He now understands the joy of the Cross and the eternal peace of his soul.  We loved this "brother in the Lord ". My prayers for grace and peace to all of his loved ones.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I remember when working with Buck many years ago that he was a very level headed and always kind person in any situation. He was a good man and an asset to the Police Department and all of his coworkers!

It was never a dull moment listening to Buck talk (in his southern drawl) to anyone who came in to the front desk at the LEC. He was a neighbor of mine for many years when Maggie was little, and she would frequently run from our yard to join him on his daily walks around the neighborhood -
Buck was a kind hearted and simple soul. RIP sweet man, you will live on in my and my Maggie’s fond memories ️

My papa was one of the greatest men I’ve ever known. He taught me so much growing up and always told me how I was his favorite granddaughter. My favorite memories include him eating lunch with me during elementary school every Friday, taking me to eat Chinese food every week, making sure me and brother made it to church every Sunday and much more. I love you more than anything Papa ️ Tink

Though he was long retired, Buck influenced a whole new generation of officers and deputies working the front desk at the LEC. He was always quick to lend a hand and offer his wisdom. I know he loved his wife dearly as he spoke of her frequently and I know they had a grand reunion in Heaven!
