  1. Cary Buck was a person was a professional who strived and excelled at the position of engineer with VT&T. I had the great fortune to work with Cary and Asa and Sam Ryalls under Mr. Payne on Hydraulic Road in the mid sixties and after military service again in the early 70’s. Cary was always offering advice and the times when I did not understand well what was the rule to follow in engineering, Cary was stern, patient and instructive in getting me on the correct path. Those were great days working with the crew in the Engineering Dept. It was enjoyed and lots was learned under all of their instruction. God bless Cary and his family.
