Charles (“Buck”) was self-employed (Arnold's Exterminating) in Highlandtown, Maryland for many years. He also worked for the Middle River Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of America. He loved his jobs and helping other people.
Buck had so much love for his family, friends and The Lord. He had a way to make each and every person that he interacted with feel special. He could be described as having an unconditional heart of gold, which was a perfect representation to his family of the love of his Lord and Savior.
Buck had a passion for softball and karaoke. He was inducted into the Softball Hall of Fame. Nobody can forget his infamous Donald Duck voice, when he would say, “round, round, round” to the babies and how he was the best Santa Claus ever for the grandkids.
No matter what life threw at him, Buck would tell you, “I lived a good life” and “better days are coming”.
Visitation Tuesday 3-7 pm at the CVACH/ROSEDALE FUNERAL HOME 1211 Chesaco Ave. Funeral Services Wednesday 11 am. Interment Holly Hill Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
