Words are hard to describe Buck but what does come to mind is a man who everyone called “friend.” He loved whole-heartedly and truly was a one-of-a-kind soul. Buck was a loving husband and a wonderful father and grandpa. He enjoyed making people laugh and bringing smiles to everyone’s faces. He loved everyone in his life especially one little girl more than life itself, his great-granddaughter, Viviana, everyone knew all about her sweet little adventures because she was his world. Buck was an outgoing kind in some ways he enjoyed fishing with his brother, Roy and sister, Sandra as well as taking trips with his wife Donna and mother-in-law Carolyn to North Carolina.
To say the least Buck is truly going to be missed by everyone he knew and we as his family welcome everyone to come and say their goodbyes on December 29, 2022 at Mynatt Funeral Home located in Fountain City from 5pm-7pm with a funeral preceding at 7pm with Daniel Rosenbalm speaking on our newly departed soul behalf as is a dear friend of Bucks.
