The John Buck Memorial
May 2, 1934 - November 1, 2020
John Buck, of Bohemia, New York, died on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at the age of 86. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Mariechen; devoted children: Susan (Bob), John (Pam), and Douglas (Rita); and adoring grandchildren: Keith, Eric, Amanda, Stephen, Mat and Azia.
Born in Elmlohe, Germany on 5/2/34, John emigrated to the United States in 1952 after completing his electrician apprenticeship to search for a better life. Drafted in 1955, he served as a paratrooper in the 11th Airborne Division and played soccer throughout Europe with the US Army team.
John was the co-founder of Hinck Electric in 1970, and a proud long-time member of Local 25 IBEW. John adored attending his grandchildren's soccer and hockey games, and spending quality time with all of them. He was loved by so many and will be incredibly missed.
