From Buck Knives:

In Memory of Lori Buck

Loraine Joann “Lori” Buck, aged 82, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Monday April 1st, 2024.

Lori was welcomed into this world on February 26, 1942 by parents Raymond and Jean Owen in Flagstaff AZ. Following a stint in Canyonville Oregon, the family relocated to San Diego Ca in 1957. Lori soon met and fell in love with Charles T. “Chuck” Buck, and the two were married December 26th 1958.

She enjoyed being a consummate hostess, spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; playing games, baking, decorating cookies, reading, and writing, as well as sharing the many memories made during travels with Chuck. The couple spent summers driving throughout the country to share their life testimony at church speaking engagements, interspersed with occasional promotional events for the family business, Buck Knives Inc.

Lori touched the lives of many people with compassion and grace. While we celebrate her undoubtedly warm reception in heaven, she will be missed by those of us on earth.
Our family appreciates the love and prayers shared over the last few months, and since her passing.

She is survived by her sister Dori; two children: CJ with his wife Heidi, and Maralee with her husband Joe; seven grandchildren: Sarah, Brittany, Josh, Rachel, Aaron, Reese, and Andy; 12 great grandchildren: Arionna, Tandrup, Charlotte, Vera, Billy, Vanna, Wyatt, Evie, Teddy, Alayna, Amelia, Walter, and Clara.
