Obituary

It is with great sadness that on November 25, 2019 the love of my life and best friend of 46 years, Francis J. Buck (Frankie) Joined the Lord above.  He is now pain free and in a loving place with his daughter, parents, grandparents, and many friends.

He was born and raised in Manchester, NH, attended West High School and worked as an electrician until retirement.

He loved life and had many hobbies, which we did together and made many great friends.  He loved his cars, the corvettes, slot cars and most of all RC Control Cars.  Frankie also loved riding his dirt and street motorcycles. His other passion after moving to The Villages to retire was Water Volleyball.  He could not get enough as you all well know.  He can do all this now with no aches or pains and he probably will win every time.

He also did his dream job in Nevada as a snow groomer at Heavenly Valley.  He can again ski now freely.  He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Barbara LaValley Buck; sister, Amelia Letourneau of Florida and two grandchildren, Christopher and Nicholas Payne of New Hampshire.

He is preceded in death by his parents Florence and Edgar Buck and daughter Tracey Payne.  A Celebration of Life will be held on January 30, 2020 at The Chatham Recreation Center from 3:30 to 7:00 pm in The Villages, FL.

    Uncle Frank will be missed. He was a devoted husband to you and you both enjoyed life together. I remember fondly our times jet skiing and snow skiing together and the many nights that I slept at your house and sat at the kitchen table finishing my plate of food :)
    He was a good man and I am glad that he is no longer suffering. I hope you will continue to enjoy life to the fullest in his honor and memory for MANY years to come.
    love you both
    Jennie

    Always enjoyed playing WVB with Frank. He had a great attitude and obviously enjoyed the game. Babs- My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
