  • Buck was a great man. I enjoyed spending my Saturday and Sunday afternoons watching the Buckeyes and The Browns with him. It’s “punt time” in Heaven my friend. Sherry and I will miss you!

  • My condolences goes to the Walker family. One of the most painful emotions we experience is grief over a love one who has passed away in death. It breaks into our lives with irresistible force, often when we are completely unprepared, and robs us of those we hold dear. However, we can find peace and comfort from God’s Word the Bible. Revelations 21:3,4 tells us, ” God . . . will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” What a heartwarming promise we have before us!

  • Buck always had a smile on his face and what a great smile it was. We all had some great times in our Browns Backers club. Lots of good times and memories. Our trip to New Orleans was one of the best. You will be missed my friend.

  • Oh my, this is a road we all have to travel alone. Have know buck and several members of his family for many,many years. He was a good man to be around, he was full of life and joy.
