Buck was one of the most decent men I have ever known, period. He married my sister when I was 11 years old. And even though I was a real pest during their courtship (hiding behind the couch and spying on them when they came home from their dates...hoping to see them kiss) he'd just laugh and give me a quarter to leave them alone. He was always gentle and kind to my daughters (his nieces) and treated them like one of his own. I could not have asked for a better brother-in-law or a better uncle to my daughters. Wherever Sharon and Buck lived.. .it was just like "home" to me and my girls. My sister loved Buck with all her heart, and he reciprocated in kind. Their marriage was filled with love and teasing (he would affectionately referred to her as "the widow".) He adored his wife and their family. Little kids seemed drawn to him as if they could somehow sense his gentleness. Although he would most likely disagree, in my opinion he lived his entire life as a true gentleman. He treated everyone with respect, whether or not they deserved it, and I never once heard him say a unkind word to, or about, anyone. (The only time I ever saw him angry it was directed towards a pony that had just hurt one of the kids.) He is also the only man I've ever known who never, ever used profanities - - "by thunder" and "dag-nabbit" were his angriest words. He worked hard his whole life, without boasting about it (or anything else, for that matter.) His word was his bond - - if he said he was going to do something, he did it. Buck Elliott's life was a living portrait of integrity and honor. He was truly a good man.

Words can not do justice to what an amazing man, husband, father and in my case uncle that Uncle Buck was. Such a kind, gentle and humble person with unmatched integrity. He was so loved and will be forever in our hearts though we know he is at peace with dear Aunt Sharon and Corey. Love to our Missouri clan, Angela, Greg and Montana
