Death of Ken Buck

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of Ken Buck, a long-time GCI elder who in recent years pastored the Brighton church in England. The following announcement is from his wife, Hilary.

Ken died on October 13, peaceful, dignified and in control, at home after what was a short illness. He was assured and confident of what the future holds and I, too, am assured and confident that we will be together again, even though the immediate days and years ahead are not what I would have chosen. He gave his last sermon three weeks before he died. I know he would like me to thank the many who showed him their warm friendship and gave him encouragement throughout the last years.

  5. Dear Hilary
    I was saddened to hear of Ken’s death, he had been a good friend to us when were living in London. Not only that but we spent many happy hours in Spokenmans club together. WE left London in 1974 but have not forgotten Ken.

  7. Hillary: not sure if you remember me from our Southampton days, but Ken baptized me in 1981. I’ll never forget both of you. Sorry to hear of his passing – he was a great guy.
