  1. RIP Buck! Your family was one of the first after moving to Dumas. You were a fixture for many years playing cards and dominos with my parents. I didn’t get to visit with you too many times after moving away from Dumas, but I did enjoy the times we got to visit.
    Prayers and love go out to Tony and Debbie, Carrie and Bryan and all of the other kids and Grand Kids.

  2. Mr. Buck taught me so many things. He instilled hard work ethics in me that made me a man,
    and have changed my life forever. Even after moving out of Amarillo, anything I accomplish stems from those ethics. I can never thank him enough, and I’ll always miss him. We could always get a good laugh out of each other, and I’ll see him again one day. God bless your family and everyone at ARC. -from ol’ Hollywood.
