He was preceded in death by his parents and two nephews, Andy Middlebrough and Erik Stephens. “Buck” graduated from Bradford Area High School in 1967 and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Geosciences from Pennsylvania State University in 1975. Prior to attending PSU, he had been drafted into the U.S. Army in 1970 and served with the 4th Battalion, 18th infantry Division in Berlin Germany during 1971-1972. Upon graduation from PSU he took a position with the Minerals Availability Field Office of the U.S. Bureau of Mines in Denver, Co and served with this office from 1975 to 1994. During this time, he was the co-author of seven major Bureau publications of studies on the domestic and foreign copper, chromium, gold, silver and graphite extraction industries as well as making numerous presentations on these subjects.
