Buck, to me, was the classic All American guy! A great personality, a great athlete, a great success in business and in everything he tried. Truly a classy guy. We played many rounds of golf together and every one of them was a great pleasure for me.
I hadn't seen Buck for several years, but happened to think to arrange a lunch with him and our mutual great friend, Bill Souders, only a few months before he died. It was one of those things I will always be glad I did.
