William R Buck

Buckskin Billy fought ''the critters'' with fierce determination & quiet dignity for several years & died peacefully at home from lung cancer. Bill had a passion for his family and a zest for life. An exceptional athlete he was a true competitor in sports, business, and life situations. When things got tough, ''you can't hurt steel'' was his mantra. Raised in Shawnee Mission, KS, Bill graduated from Kansas University on a full football scholarship & served in the US Air Force for 4 years. He began his successful career with Weyerhaeuser Co & upon retirement, every day was a Saturday according to Bill.

Bill spent his free time with his beloved family, boating, hiking, skiing, & vacationing. He was very excited to have climbed Mt. Rainier.

Bill touched many people with his strength, wit, & knowledge. Never one to complain, this sweet caring man was just glad to be here.

Papa is survived by his wife of 47 years, Diane, the love of his life, and son, Brian & Robyn Buck (Eric & Rion) and daughter, Laura & Pete Lupo (Shane & Bradley); brother-in-law, Gordon Foster. He was preceded in death by his sister Beverly Foster.

The Memorial Service will be at Sammamish Presbyterian Church, 22522 NE Inglewood Hill Drive, Sammamish.
