Obituary

George Andrew Buck was born March 21, 1917 in Boone, Iowa and passed on at the Veterans Administration Hospice on March 26, 2011, Des Moines, Iowa. He was married to Eleanor Strack for their lifetime and was the best father one could want. He was a forestry graduate of Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (Iowa State University). George was a World War II combat veteran (artillery forward observer), Purple Heart and Bronze Star and Korean War veteran (EOD explosive ordnance disposal), and a retired Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army. He was a retired High School Science Teacher (Van Meter, Iowa), longtime adult Boy Scout Volunteer, trainer of BSA adults and scouts, and Woodbadge holder. His hobbies and organizations are too numerous to state.

Cremation with interment at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. Memorial Service at a later date at Valley United Methodist Church. No memorials, flowers, or cards, just thoughts and prayers for a wonderful life.
