What a loss. This guy was a legendary leader in IBM. I met him and Watson Jr in person on 2 occasions when I was in IBM Sales School and I have both their books which they signed for me at that time. I was deeply moved and motivated by Buck in my early days with IBM when I met him and heard him speak. He had a total command of the stage, pacing back and forth with no notes or slides. He was like a re-incarnation of Tom Watson Sr. ...he spoke of the basics, selling solutions, proper business conduct, respect for the individual, excellence, integrity and above all delighting the customer. His book 'The IBM Way' , full of selling tips. is still a relevant today as it was when he wrote it in 1986. And his results speak for themselves as IBM's top Marketing Executive from 1974-1984, he was IBM's vice president of marketing, responsible for worldwide marketing activities, which encompassed IBM's domestic divisions and operations in 131 foreign countries. he saw and led through IBM's growth from $250 million to $50 billion...a 200-fold increase in IBM's revenue. We were blessed to have such a leader at that time in IBM's great history. My deepest sympathies to his family.

I'll always remember my first 100% Club when Buck took the main stage and blew us all away with his passion and energy for clients, for sales, and for IBM. It was inspiring to see and hear him.

One of my fondest memories was taking Buck to meet my client as a young sales rep. God bless Buck and the Rodgers' family.

What an era we shared. A distinct priviledge to be led by such a man. You are missed in this household.
