Bucky was born in South English, Iowa on January 22, 1926 and graduated from Palatine High School outside of Chicago, Illinois.

After serving in the United States. Navy during WWII, Bucky attended and later graduated from the University of Iowa where he played basketball and, more importantly, met his loving wife, Margi in 1948. Bucky and Margi were married for 64 years.

Bucky enjoyed spending time with his family and many friends in both Fresno and Rancho Mirage. He steadfastly claimed he never lost a golf bet with any of his buddies. We will always remember Bucky for the twinkle in his sparkling blue eyes, keen sense of humor and generosity.
