I would like to take a moment to send my deepest condolences to the family, friends, and co-workers of Officer Buckner. I must say we did not get along 8 times out of 10, but I will sincerely miss him. I do not wish the passing of any person upon anyone. One person has the power to effect many, and Office Buckner did that.
I cannot elaborate on his personal life, but at work, Officer Buckner did his job! I’ve witnessed him come in at times he did not have to, as a team player. The Officer Buckner I remember was ALWAYS there in assistance of so many other officers, No matter what, whether we liked him or not, Officer Buckner was Officer Buckner.
Before Turbeville left DCDC, him and Officer Buckner was mostly side by side. Whenever there was a situation wherever, Buckner never hesitated to approach it ready to seize and assist.
In life we cannot please everyone. We cannot make everyone happy. Not everyone will like us as a person. We can thrive to be the best that we can be, but it is most important for us, to genuinely be ourselves. It is easiest to be who we are and not pretend to be someone that we are not. Regardless to whether everyone liked him or not, they could never deny Officer Buckner is Officer Buckner. I can sincerely state, on everything, I shall always remember him and his presence will be missed.
So in celebrating the life and times of a rider, I pray he rode into Heaven with an angel right beside him. God is the author and finisher of our fate. He already knows our number of days, even before we work born. At this time, we all must realize the bigger picture, your loved one, co-worker, friend, was handpicked by God.
May you Rest In Peace Officer Buckner.
In Sincere love & respect to all,
Derek M. Price I
