Orange Springs, FL - Herbert "Buck" Franklin Rizer, 76, of Orange Springs, passed away January 11, 2013 at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. He was born March 23, 1936 to Albert Rizer and Eleanor Wyncoop Rizer Jinks in Laurelville, Ohio; both of whom preceded him in death, as well as a brother Bill and an infant sister.

Left to cherish his memories are his wife, Elsie Barnett Sauls Sanders Rizer of Orange Springs, a step son, Mike Sauls and his wife Sandra of Trenton, FL, four grandchildren, Ashley and Keith Dishman of North Carolina, Kaitlynn Sauls of Gainesville, FL, Tyler and Shelby Sauls of Trenton, FL, a host of nieces, nephews and friends, close friend, Bobby Shipley, as well as his faithful dog, Tasha Marie, who loved to take rides in his jeep with him.

Buck enjoyed cooking, especially at the fish fries at Orange Springs Civic Club. He spent many hours sitting on his carport, watching the world go by and visiting with the many people who stopped in.

He was most recently a carrier for The Gainesville Sun, as well as being a home builder, dairy worker, well driller, horseman and even raised purebred Himalayan and Persian cats with his wife, Elsie.

Buck had a heart of gold and would give you the shirt off his back. He believed in helping others and often did.

Buck requested cremation and arrangements are under the direction of Johnson-Overturf Funeral Home in Interlachen. Memorial services may be announced at a later date.

Memories and Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.JohnsonOverturffunerals.com.
