Love you uncle Buck. You are very special to me. Rest In Peace Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. by Mary Elizabeth Frye

After a baseball game one evening Buck was our house in North Hr. A crib game broke out Buck & dad against myself & Mom. Into the game dad says to Buck "look my son she's looking right into your hand". Denials all around. So Buck brings his cards up his chest. He's sitting with his back to the window. I could see his cards in "the window" better than I could mine in my hand! Years later I told him. He had as many tears in his eyes then as I now. Phonse, Paddy and Bob He was a kind soul. And he COULD hit a softball? Rick Power

Buck, “don’t call me Adrian!!”..(and of course I did just to get under his skin!!) Grace was my brother and side-kick from the minute he joined us in 1985 on the Atha “B” until he left for the west coast in the early 90s. I could write a 2 volume set of novels about our weekend adventures which would start after work on Thurs and usually run until late Sunday night because for some reason, Sunday was the best day of the week to party. Buck was legendary, tough as nails but at the same time, he had one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have had the pleasure to know. He always looked after his brothers and always made sure that we were fed with a “good scoff”. We still share stories about him to this day. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to hang out with him during St Paddy’s week 2016 in St John’s after seeing him for the first time in over 20 years..It was like we hadn’t missed a step and we stayed in touch via phone from time to time. Buck was a large part of my past and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him. My condolences go out to his family and may he enjoy his long deserved “Extended Sliders”. Rest in peace my brother.
