My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of James Kay " Buck" Buckles. I am sorry for your loss. May you the fond memories you all have,help to comfort you through this difficult time. This is Gods promise to all his faithful servants:"Do nut be afraid,for I am with you. Do not be anxious,for I am your God. I will fortify you,yes, I will help you. I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness ". ( Isiah 41:10). The death of a loved one can be very painful and weight heavily on our hearts. But knowing that God truly cares will help heal as you celebrate his life.

I first met Jim when I was transferred in 1985 to FAA HQ in Washington, DC. We instantly became friends, both being from Iowa. He became my go to guy in the branch to answer many of the questions I had about navigating the halls of headquarters. I will always remember his kind manner and pleasant smile. He was always happy go lucky and I don't believe he had a mean bone in his body. He will be greatly missed.

I first met Jim in Washington, D.C. as he was handing off his programs to me. I enjoyed the many work trips with him and the FAA teams as he always knew of a special restaurant that we had to experience. Smart, kind and gentle are the words I would use to describe Jim.
