From the first time I met Buck it seemed like I had known him forever. He had a great personality and boy did he like to talk! You sure didn't have to worry about what you were going to talk because he always had a story to tell! I remember he would stop by Hot Tails often and buy boiled shrimp. Man he loved boiled shrimp and could hardly wait to get home and eat them! Every time i saw him he had that big smile on his face! Buck will truly be missed! My deepest sympathy to all of Bucks family and friends.

It has been years since I have seen him. But, as a Gabbard we were around the corner neighbors. I know as family he will be missed by all and I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you all at this time.

Buck was a great man and will be greatly missed. He was more like a brother to me than a cousin. I know he is in Heaven walking among the angels with our Lord and Savior. Rest In Piece.
