Our thoughts go out to you in this time of sorrow. Bucky always enjoyed our luncheons and you never knew what he might say. We had a good time with him and would laugh about the craziest things. May God comfort you Susie and your family.

Sue and family. Was sadden to learn of Bucky’s death. I had just thought about him when I saw our pictures in “The Way it Was”. We were classmates and teammates as well as friends. As often happens as we mature we lose contact but not our memories. He was a great guy and I am sure you will miss him.

Dan and family,

We are so sorry for your loss. I had a very similar series of events 7 years ago with my own father. It is very difficult, but hopefully, the knowledge that he's no longer in pain, will offer some comfort. And with time, your feelings of grief and loss will be replaced with good memories.

You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

To all of Bucky's family,

I only knew Bucky from golfing with him on a number of occasions, but I have always been impressed with what a great guy he was. Always a positive outlook, a gentleman, and fun to be out with. He will be sorely missed on the golf course, and I hope the family will accept my sympathy, thoughts and prayers in this time of his loss.
