Buck was born Nov. 8, 1930, in Davis to the late Onis Matthew and Callie Mae (Sanders) Wilson.  He died Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017 in Oklahoma City, at the age of 86 years, 11 months and 4 days.
Buck grew up in Davis, graduating from Davis High School in May, 1949.  He married his high school sweetheart, Wanda Faye Busby on March 23, 1950, in Davis.  Following their marriage, Buck and Wanda moved to the Dallas area where he worked for a steel company, only to return home to Davis a short time later. For several years, Buck owned and operated a small pig farm and later a service station. In the late 1960’s, Buck began managing Zip’s Grocery Store in Davis. Later Zip’s sold to the Carver family and it became known as the Super C Mart of Davis with Buck managing. After 25 plus years managing the grocery store, he retired, only to go to work for the City of Davis as the city manager, retiring in 2001.  
Any one that truly knew Buck Wilson knew several important things about his life; first and foremost, he was a devoted Christian man, he loved his family and community and he was an avid OU Sooners and Davis Wolves fan.  He rarely ever missed a Davis football game and attended most OU football games.

He was also a past president and member of the Davis Kiwanis Club, served on the board of directors for the Davis Chamber of Commerce, served several terms on the Davis Public Schools Board of Education, as well as served on the Southern Oklahoma Development Authority board. In his spare time, Buck enjoyed traveling with his family, fishing and collecting coins.
