Clyde Elvin Buck was born at the family home on June 1, 1937, to Clyde and Elsie Kelley Buck and departed to be with the Lord on September 2, 2007 at the age of 70 plus years. Except for a few years while attending college, he lived in Eads, Colorado engaged in the parming and ranching business. On April 24, 1989, his daughter Jessica Mae Buck was born and has been the joy of his life. Watching and being involved with her growing up has been special to him.
Elvin's life was one of service. As a child, even though he was limited because of rheumatic fever, he helped his folks on the farm helping wherever possible. His experiences in childhood and the strong work ethic that was instilled in him enabled him to cope with the challenges that would occur in his adult life. Elvin was honored as the 1987 Conservationist of the year for the Lower Arkansas Valley Watershed. He was active in the Eads Lions Club for several years., was a long-time member of the Odd Fellow and Rebecca Lodge, and served on the Eads Consumer Supply Company board of directors. He also served on the Selective Service Board for 20 years.
In his youth and teenage years he was involved with 4-H and more than once produced the Grand Champion market steer at the Kiowa County Fair.
He was active at First Christian Church in Eads as a child and at the time of his death belonged to and served as a Deacon at the Northside Christian Church in Pueblo, Colorado. He loved and was loved by his church family and was a faithful servant to his God.
Family was important to Elvin and he enjoyed spending time and doing things together. One thing he really looked forward to was cruises with his family and had just returned from an Alaskan cruise the end of July with his daughter, Jess, and sseveral family members and friends. He also had been on a couple of cruises in the Caribbean, one with all of his siblings in 2005.
Uncle Elvin was a favorite of the nieces and nephews; they all loved to go to the farm during the summer and help, and even though they probably made more work than help, you would find them there every summer. He taught them work ethics, responsibility, and how to work as a team.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Clyde and Elsie Buck, brothers Gailen Buck and Robert (Short) Buck, and nephew Chris Buck and niece Sonja Buck. He is survived by his daughter Jessica of Eads, sisters Pat and Mel Gramm of Denver, Shirley and Jim Leinberger of Arvada and Florence and Calvin Covalt of New Iberia, Louisiana, brothers Jim and Liz Buck of Edmond, Oklahoma, and Ed and Lil Buck of Sterling, sister-in-law Lola Buck of Castle Rock.
