May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Bucky, My little Uncle John as I called him is truly one of the kindest people I will ever have the pleasure of knowing. I would go to work just waiting to see his smile. The days we would show up to work by accident in our matching Atlas shirts. Uncle John would make sure everyone saw that him and I were twins for the day. He was always so excited about it. Haha! I truly loved it. I would have to chase him down to change the gas bottle on his lift. The man was always cruising around like a little speed racer on that thing. His work sister Sherri always gave him his daily hugs which he just loved. Uncle John truly had us couple ladies at Atlas wrapped around his little pinky. We all adored Uncle John so much. Denny and Buck were always like glue. You didn't get one without the other. They were a package deaI. When we were all on the same shifts it was Bucky, Denny and Keller. The little trio! True friends for life. I would listen to Uncle John talk about spending time with his family and you could just see the joy in his face. He was my first friend and family at Atlas. I personally will truly miss his loveable personality and gentle soul. If he was hugging you or getting fiesty. You knew it was real. He was so genuine and always wore his heart on his sleeve. Uncle John, you will always hold a special place in my heart. Lots of love and prayers to you all.
