Mr. Buller was born and grew up near Hamilton, Ohio, the youngest son of Glen (aka Glenn) and VeraBelle (Hoon) Buller. He graduated from McGuffey High School. He had two brothers (Conneth and James) and three sisters (Vera, Marian, and Ruby Jane).

He married Marguerite Agatha Breimayer in Michigan and eventually moved to southern Wisconsin, finally settling to farm near Portage with his brothers Conneth and James. For the next thirty years, Buller Bros. grew onions, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, and more, much of it under contract to large distributors such as Campbell's Soup. Together they eventually ran three farms, one between Portage and Wisconsin Dells, and the other two near Endeavor, Wisconsin. He was past president of the Wisconsin Carrot Growners Assn. and was a member of the Wisconsin Potato Growers Assn. After retirement, he started Francis D. Buller Produce Sales and continued this operation until his death.

Mr. Buller had five children: Patricia (deceased),
Charlene, Nancy, Kathleen, and Mark. He retired from farming in the 1980s and became a part-time produce broker. He loved to golf, spend winters in Arizona and most of all his wife and family.
