Arthur Glen Buck Sr.
Arthur Glen Buck, age 83, passed away peacefully in his home on Sunday, April 28, 2018 alongside family. He was born on October 13, 1934 in Modesto, CA to Kirk Buck and Sarah Blatt and was a 1952 graduate of Manteca High School.
"Art" served in the Seabees from 1952 to 1955. During that time, he married the love of his life, Barbara Owen, in 1953. Growing up on a farm in Manteca, CA, Art learned the importance of hard work. While he was an incredibly humble man, his 60 years as a leader in the wire and cable industry led him to achieve multiple patents and lifetime achievement awards.
Art was passionate about his work and the people he worked with. He was a loyal friend to all, a devoted husband, and an incredible father and "Papa." He bonded with people over sports, gardening, antique clocks - you name it. He will be greatly missed by the many people he has touched.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara Buck, and brothers LeRoy and Harold. He is survived by his brother Eldon Buck; his children Arthur Glen Buck Jr. and wife, Marcie, Mark Buck and wife Linda, David Buck, Shawn Lee and husband John; grandchildren, Cory Buck and wife Silvia, April Breault and husband Steve, Aubrey Buck, Arthur Glen Buck III, Mallory Buck, Kirk Buck Jr., Kelsey Buck, Nicole Buck, and John Lee Jr.; and great-grandchildren, Zander Breault, Jordan Buck, Eli Breault, Brooklyn Buck, and Owen Buck.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 8, 2018 from 3-5 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, 25425 SW 95th Ave., Wilsonville, OR.
