The perfect example of a saved sinner, father, friend, mentor, and leader. My heart hurts daily. He never gave those he loved an option to not be a part of his family. Anyone with ears to hear and eyes to see will know the power of redemption through salvation in Jesus and how incredible Buck Dancy was. The world is better because he was a part and we are better for knowing him and being loved by him and his lovely daughter, Rebekah.
