Robert Lee "Bob" Buck, age 60, of Greenville, went home to be with the Lord on  Saturday, September 3, 2016 from Spectrum Health-Butterworth Hospital after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis and Lung Cancer. 

The son of  Jordan Lee & Mary Adaline (Hendrick) Buck, he was born on October 12, 1955 in Sheridan and was a 1973  graduate of Greenville High School.  He had worked at the former Electrolux Home Products until his health forced him to retire.

Bob was a long-time member of Faith Baptist Church in Greenville, as well as Calvary Church in Grand Rapids.  He had a passion for music and was blessed with the talent of being able to play both the guitar and banjo.  He delighted in playing at music jamborees throughout the area, as well as in the praise team at Calvary Church in Grand Rapids.

Surviving are his parents, Jordan & Mary Buck;   a sister, Judy & Leroy Tissue, all of Centreville;  four nephews, Leroy & Tonya Tissue, Eric & Tara Tissue, Adam & Hannah Tissue, and Aaron & Vanessa Tissue;  a niece, Mary & Mark Schabes;  eight great nieces and great nephews;  seven aunts and uncles;  and many cousins.   

Visitation is from 10-11 a.m. on Thursday at Faith Baptist Church, 315 S. Greenville West Drive, where funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday.  The Rev. Robert Winter, pastor of Faith Baptist Church, will officiate and a luncheon will follow the service.  Burial will take place privately at Evergreen Township Cemetery near Sheridan.  

Instead of flowers, Bob would have preferred donations in his memory to your area food pantry.  Envelopes for contributions will be available at the church. 

To send a message of sympathy to the family, sign Robert's online guest book, or to share a favorite memory, please visit:  Arrangements are entrusted to Christiansen Cremation & Funeral Care, Greenville.
