    I had the pleasure of meeting Buck in 2008 when I started working for North Hills Toyota now Jim Shorkey Toyota in 2008.
    We became work buddies shortly after meeting. Buck was always there for everyone and did another in his power to make co-workers and customers feel loved.
    If you knew Buck you loved him and will truly miss him!
    Rest peacefully my friend You deserve it!
    With Love

    I am so saddened by hearing that Buck passed. I have been cutting his hair for many years and will miss his sense of humor when I try to talk him into letting me give him new styles. May he rest in peace.
