Buck was a very instrumental part of my life. When I was 12 or 13 I washed trucks for my uncle,and before I was driving a car I knew how to drive dump trucks, and could run a bulldozer. Buck atught me not only to drive and operate various equipment, but he taught me that if you ever want something in life you had to work for it. He is also the reason my wife Anna and myself or here today because he was the one that found us after the tornado destroyed my mothers home. I will always miss our conversations about old times at the pond.

Popcorn, picture albums, movies, animals, cookouts, working at the office...but most importantly, still being able to tell everyone that I learned to drive a ton truck before the age of 15. Babe, PeeWee and all my family, I love y'all. -Jessi Peck
