“Buck” was born in 1973 to his parents Charles and Madeline Buck in The Pas, Manitoba. Randy married the love of his life, Rhoda, on August 27, 1994. Together they were blessed with four children: Randy “Ranjose”(Chantal) Buck, Rayden “Pete” (Maria) Buck, Ryder “Bug” Buck and Rafe “Baby” Buck and three grandchildren: his “Baby” Grayson, Hope “Pretty Girl” and Nolan “Teedeedeet”. Randy was also blessed with three other children and two grandchildren: Ashley (Cameron and Tamara), Hayden and Jared.
Randy lived most of his life in Cumberland House, Sask. He chose to follow in his father’s footsteps by becoming a carpenter. Randy went to SIAST to study carpentry from 1992 to 1994. He helped his dad with renovations and new construction until his father’s passing on Oct. 30, 1997. He kept his father’s legacy alive by continuing his passion for carpentry until his own passing.
We can’t say that Randy was just an avid fisherman, it was a pastime where he felt the utmost peace, and extreme closeness to God. Fishing wasn’t just a sport to him. Through fishing he developed a greater love for the land and water which enabled him to build stronger relationships with the people he spent time fishing with. Randy enjoyed entering in the local fish derbies with his partner Rhoda by his side and occasionally his sons Randy or Rayden. Randy often told stories about his fishing adventures with his fishing buddies; Elmer, Achoos Fleury and Eugene.
