• Jordan Buck

    18 Jul 2021

  • Jordan Buck was born August 31, 1934 near Pawhuska, Oklahoma.  He was the only child of Paul and Gladys Buck.  Son as he was known to most everyone lived a wonderful life as a son, husband, father, and grandfather.  He attended the Bird Creek School in Pawhuska until 8th grade and then attended Pawhuska High School where he graduated.  Son married Lelia Renfrow on May 21, 1960.  They made their home on Moore Prairie just north of Elgin for 61 years. Son loved his family, ranching, farming, his John Deere Gator and his dogs.  Son is survived by his wife Lelia Buck, PJ and Shelly Buck of Sedan, Kay and John Hill of Sedan, and Andy and Lindy Buck of Fairfax, Iowa.  Grandchildren Addison Buck, Jordan Hill, Sarah Buck, John Tyler Hill, Ellen and Payton Hays, and Paul and JesseKate Buck. 

    Son was the epitome of a man with integrity and generosity. He would help anyone that needed help.  He had an amazing sense of humor and ornery side.  You would rarely see him without a large chew of tobacco in his mouth and if it was winter a fur hat on his head.  He loved animals and had a unique way with them.  We often said he “spoke their language”.  He loved being out at the ranch and working.  We can’t remember our parents ever taking a vacation because they had too much work to do. Work was what he enjoyed and would rather do that than anything.  He was such a fun dad and so proud of his family.  He lived his life faithfully, spoke with God often, and loved the land.

    A memorial service will be held on Wednesday July 21, 2021 at 4:30 at the home of John and Kay Hill 1545 Gallop Road, Sedan, KS with Gary Cole officiating.  The family invites all friends and family to gather and share memories with them following the service. 

    In lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation to USD 286 Sedan FFA. Donations can mailed to USD 286 416 E. Elm, Sedan, KS 67361, 1st National Bank of Sedan, PO Box E, Sedan, KS 67361, or left with Dickens Family Funeral Home.   

    For this one farmer the worries are over, lie down and rest your head,

    Your time has been and struggles enough, put the tractor in the shed.

    Years were not easy, many downright hard, but your faith in God transcended,

    Put away your tools and sleep in peace. The fences have all been mended.

    You raised a fine family, worked the land well under the hot summer sun,

    Hang up your shovel inside the barn; your work on earth is done.

    Your labor is done, your home now is heaven; no more must you wait,

    Your legacy lives on, your love of the Land, and yes Son – we will close the gate
