    I still can’t believe Buck is gone. He was not only my cousin but a very good friend and I will always remember his visits to Clearfield as a youngster and the good times we had and also Buck and Sue’s last visit to our home in State College, PA a few years back.
    Buck will be missed but not forgotten by all who knew him. He was the kindest, most gentle person we ever knew and he has earned his place with our Lord in Paradise.
    May he rest in the peace of the Lord!

    My wonderful husband of 40+ years has left me. I don’t know how I can carry-on without him. He was always there for me. He was my closest friend and my help mate in evert way. I don’t understand why you had to leave me so early. I miss you so much.

    “Buck” was a special Christian friend to me He was such a gentle, loving person and loved our Lord with all his heart. The funeral message was the best one I’ve ever heard, and I’ve heard many. Thank you Pastor.

    It was a true blessing to know Buck. He lived his faith and it showed in his life. He was a kind and gentle man and had a great sense of humor. We always looked forward to spending time with him and Sue when they visited Baltimore. Buck, you will truly be missed.

    Buck was a dear friend and Christian brother. We’re going to miss him so much! We’ve been friends with Sue and Buck for many years and know she’s going to miss her soul mate. Our sincere condolences to the family.
