Each family member has their special memories of “Paps.” His love for Betty and other family members, his love for the Lord and the members at CrystalRock Cathedral, his laughter, a special way of speaking a name, his prayers, and his special sayings such as “Ice cream, ice cream! We all scream for ice cream!” He will be very much missed.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Betty, of 67 years. His parents, Orville and Vesta Buck, and three brothers: Bill, Orvy, and Tommy.

Charles leaves behind his two sons: Wayne Buck and wife, Linda, of Tulsa, Okla., and Jim Buck and wife, Kathy, of Ardmore.
