After several wars and twenty years later Buck retired from the Navy as a Chief Yeoman. During those 20 years he moonlighted as a sports columnist and sports editor for local papers all the while continuing his education. He completed high school and attended numerous colleges where he majored in journalism.

He almost completed his Master’s degree before being hired by the Chicago White Sox professional baseball organization as their Publicity Director. He lived with his family and worked in Chicago for many years. He eventually left the Sox and worked for the Chicago Cubs organization. After many years of devoted work he left Chicago for the warmer climate of San Diego, CA. There along with other family members he opened a sports clothing and silk screening business. After many more years of hard work he and his wife closed the business and retired moving back to Southaven, MS. Buck was predeceased by his son Bob and is survived by his wife of 65 years Carolyn Peden, sons David and Jeff, daughter Debra, daughters-in-law Gale and Julie, son-in-law Joe, many grandchildren and great grandchildren along with an abundance of friends. He was a big sports enthusiast and award winning golfer. He will be remembered as a loving man with a passion for life while maintaining a good sense of humor. He was an intelligent man that worked hard to make something of himself that we all are proud of. He will be sorely missed!
