Jim Buck

Jim Buck passed away on June 11, 2017. He was the instigator of this website, and always spoke with love and respect for his HHS '51 classmates. He will be missed dearly.

Jane and I have been married since June 1960. I retired from E.I.DuPont Co. in 1990 after 34 years of service. We have traveled across the USA extensively in a van camper RV. We parked the van and took a cruise ship to Alaska in 1997. We so enjoyed that "easy living" that we cruised to Hawaii in 1998, and then in March 2000, we flew to Australia and cruised to several ports there and in New Zealand.

We have two sons. Duane is a retired National Park Ranger (Law Enforcement) who now lives in Denver, CO, where he works as a Court Officer. He is married to Merle and they have two daughters, Brittany and Amanda. Our other son, Gary, is an independent design consultant near Vail, Colorado, and is married to Jennifer. His company, Spelunk, produces apps and websites of all shapes and sizes and currently maintains this HHS alumni site.

We enjoyed attending a mini-reunion at Terry Dynes' in Iowa in July 1999 and we are looking forward to attending the 50th HHS 51 class reunion in 2001 in Huron.
