There could only be one, Buck Kauffman. He and Connie were such a wonderful pair, and it was my great pleasure to work with them on a planning project. Good humor? Yes, indeed. Personality, lots.
What a guy! Many people will miss him, including me.

Many great memories of Buck in our high school years. Even though,I was younger than Buck, Lee had been his friend for life. Lee, Buck, Connie and I ran around together when I was in high school. We did lots of crazy things and enjoyed all our times together and the laughter. We will miss you our dear friend Buck. You were one of a kind, such a sweetheart.
